In Moscow two entrepreneurs offer help
“We understand this is a terrible catastrophe. We would be happy to help if we can. We want to make a contribution to the common cause,” says Murad Khalov from Nitinol, Ltd.
The contribution is called the Nitinol Packer. The device is meant to overcome the oil flow by blocking it. The key is a wire alloy made of nickel and titanium called Nitinol. It is essentially a morphing metal that is shaped by using extreme heat. After it cools, it can be pulled and twisted into another figure, but add just small amounts of heat and it snaps back into its original form.
