ASTM WK26418

    Revision of F136 - 08e1 Standard Specification for Wrought Titanium-6 Aluminum-4 Vanadium ELI (Extra Low Interstitial) Alloy for Surgical Implant Applications (UNS R56401)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F136 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.12 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale
