Standard Specification for Titanium and Titanium-6 Aluminum-4 Vanadium Alloy Powders for Coatings of Surgical Implants
|Publication Date:||1 March 2012|
This specification covers the requirements for unalloyed titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy powders for use in fabricating coatings on titanium alloy implants.
Powders covered under this specification may be used to form coatings by sintering or thermal spraying techniques.
This specification covers powder requirements only. It does not address properties of the coatings formed from them.
Finely divided titanium powder may be considered pyrophoric and should be handled in accordance with the appropriate guidelines.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
