    Abstract

    This specification covers the chemical, particle size, and cleanliness requirements for unalloyed titanium and titanium-6aluminum-4vanadium alloy powders for use as coatings, formed by sintering or thermal spraying techniques, onto titanium alloy surgical implants. The powders may be manufactured by the plasma rotating electrode, inert gas atomization, or hydride-dehydride process, or other method capable of producing powder meeting the requirements of this specification. This specification addresses only the powder requirements, and not the properties of the coatings formed from them.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for unalloyed titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy powders for use in fabricating coatings on titanium alloy implants.

    1.2 Powders covered under this specification may be used to form coatings by sintering or thermal spraying techniques.

    1.3 This specification covers powder requirements only. It does not address properties of the coatings formed from them.

    1.4 Finely divided titanium powder may be considered pyrophoric and should be handled in accordance with the appropriate guidelines.

    1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
