Standard Specification for Wrought Seamless and Welded and Drawn Cobalt Alloy Small Diameter Tubing for Surgical Implants (UNS R30003, UNS R30008, UNS R30035, UNS R30605, and UNS R31537)
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
This specification covers the requirements for wrought seamless and welded and drawn cobalt alloy small diameter tubing used for the manufacture of surgical implants. Material shall conform to the applicable requirements of Specifications F90, F562, F688, F1058 or F1537, Alloy 1. This specification addresses those product variables that differentiate small diameter medical tubing from the bar, wire, sheet and strip product forms covered in these specifications.
This specification applies to straight length tubing with 6.3 mm [0.250 in.] and smaller nominal outside diameter (OD) and 0.76 mm [0.030 in.] and thinner nominal wall thickness.
The specifications in 2.1 are referred to as the ASTM material standard(s) in this specification.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
