Standard Specification for Wrought Seamless Nickel-Titanium Shape Memory Alloy Tube for Medical Devices and Surgical Implants
|Publication Date:||1 April 2007|
|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 F 2063. This specification addresses those product variables that differentiate drawn medical grade tube from the raw material and mill product forms covered in Specification F 2063.
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.
