This specification covers the requirements for the manufacture of wrought cobalt-20chromium-15tungsten-10nickel surgical fixation wire. The starting material, dimensions, and tolerances shall conform to the requirements specified. The surgical fixation wire is usually furnished in the bright-annealed condition. Mechanical properties of the surgical fixation wire such as tensile strength and elongation shall be determined.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for the manufacture of wrought cobalt-20chromium-15tungsten-10nickel surgical fixation wire.
1.2 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 non-conformance with the standard.
