|Publication Date:||1 March 2021|
|ICS Code (Nickel, chromium and their alloys):||77.120.40|
|ICS Code (Titanium and titanium alloys):||77.120.50|
This terminology is a compilation of definitions of terms used in ASTM documents relating to nickel-titanium shape memory alloys used for medical devices. This terminology includes only those terms for whichASTM either has standards or which are used inASTM standards for nickel-titanium shape memory alloys. It is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of terms related to shape memory alloys.
Definitions that are similar to those published by another standards body are identified with abbreviations of the name of that organization; for example, ICTAC is the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry.
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.
