Nitinol, how fast does it absorb heat in direct contact?

  1. Jul 23, 2015 #1
    Hello, I am new here and this is my 1st post.

    I want to know how fast does Nitinol absorb heat when placed in the following conditions:

    A soldering iron is heated at 310 degrees Celcius, and the tip makes contact directly with the electropolished nitinol. How long will it take for the nitinol to absorb such heat to be considered that it is actually at 310 degrees?

    Maybe it is a dumb question but I cannot seem to find answers on the internet.

    Thanks, help is greatly appreciated
