Standard Specification for Wrought Seamless Nickel-Titanium Shape Memory Alloy Tube for Medical Devices and Surgical Implants
|Publication Date:||1 October 2013|
|ICS Code (Nickel and chromium products):||77.150.40|
This specification covers the requirements for wrought nickel-titanium shape memory alloy tube, nominally 54.5 to 57.0 mass/mass (weight) % nickel, in the superelastic condition, used for the manufacture of medical devices and surgical implants. Material shall conform to the applicable requirements of Specification F2063. This specification addresses those product variables that differentiate drawn medical grade tube from the raw material and mill product forms covered in Specification F2063.
This specification applies to tube with 10 mm (0.4 in.) and smaller nominal outside diameter and 2 mm (0.08 in.) and thinner nominal wall thickness.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses (inch-pound units) are for information only.
