|Publication Date:||1 February 2017|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
This specification covers the materials, dimensional tolerances, constructions, and mechanical properties for standard metallic implantable strands and cables.
This specification is intended to assist in the development of specific strand and cable specifications. It is particularly appropriate for high load bearing applications. It is not intended however, to address all of the possible variations in construction, material, or properties.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
