Russia's insistence on paying for Russian gas in rubles has rattled European countries: Greece held an emergency meeting of suppliers, the Dutch government would urge consumers to use less gas, and the French energy regulator told consumers not to panic. Russian gas meets one-third of Europe's annual energy needs.
Russia said they could expand their demand for ruble payments for other commodities, including oil, grain, fertilizer, coal, and metals, which raised the risk of recession in Europe and the US.
Moscow is expected to unveil its ruble payment plan in early April, but it said it would not immediately ask buyers to pay for gas in rubles.
Western countries have said paying in rubles would be a breach of contract, and renegotiation could take months or longer. This uncertainty has pushed commodity market prices higher.
The supply and prices of other commodities like the Nitinol Alloy could also be affected.
What is Nitinol?
The tensile strength of Nitinol can reach 1000 MPa. That is to say, it takes more than 100 dry grams of force per square millimeter to break it, which is stronger than ordinary steel, and also has good "memory" performance and corrosion resistance.
Nitinol contains 50% nickel and 50% titanium, that is, the components of nickel and titanium are equally divided, each accounting for half. The temperature range of its shape memory can be adjusted by controlling the composition. In general, the higher the nickel content of Nitinol, the lower the operating temperature. When the nickel content is 55% and the titanium content is 45%, the memory alloy can work at room temperature.
People have used this feature of memory alloys to make pearl necklaces and bracelets made of memory alloy wires, as well as bras woven with memory alloy wires. When these decorations and health care products are worn on the body, they will restore their original curvature and stiffness under the action of human body temperature, thus playing a role in decoration and health care. In addition, the orthodontic wire can also be made of Nitinol alloy, which can use the temperature of the human mouth to correct the deformed teeth.
