    Abstract

    This specification covers UNS S31673 chromium-nickel-molybdenum wrought annealed stainless steel surgical fixation wires. The wires should conform to the required values of tensile strength and elongation. Wire surfaces should be processed to minimize tool marks, nicks, scratches, cracks, cavities, spurs, and other imperfections that would impair wire serviceability.
