Standard Specification for Wrought Seamless Stainless Steel Tubing for Surgical Implants
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
|ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics):||11.040.40|
This specification covers the requirements for five compositions of wrought seamless stainless steel tubing for the manufacture of surgical implants. Material shall conform to the applicable requirements of Specifications F138, F1314, F1586, F2229, or F2581. This specification addresses those product variables that differentiate wrought seamless tubing from the bar and wire product forms covered in these specifications.
This specification applies to cold finished, straight length tubing from 3 to 34 mm [0.125 to 1.315 in.] nominal outside diameter (OD) and 0.5 mm [0.020 in.] and greater 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 nonconformance with the standard.
