Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the requirements for cobalt-28chromium-6molybdenum alloy powders for coating of orthopedic implants. This specification covers powder requirements only and does not address coating properties. Materials may be manufactured by rotating electrode process, inert gas atomization, or other methods that meet the powder requirements of this specification. The powder shall conform to chemical composition, sieve analysis, and cleanliness requirements of this specification.
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.
1.4 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.
