This specification covers the materials, dimensional tolerances, constructions, and mechanical properties for standard metallic implantable strands and cables. Materials shall be manufactured using equivalent size wires in the cold-worked and stress-relieved or annealed condition. Standard strand constructions shall be 1×3, 1×7, and 1×19 strand. Cabling constructions shall be 7×7 and 7×19 cable. Mechanical requirements include ultimate tensile strength and minimum breaking force. Strand or cable shall have no welds or splices, free of imperfections, and shall conform to dimensions, surface finish, and tolerances indicated in 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.
1.1 This specification covers the materials, dimensional tolerances, constructions, and mechanical properties for standard metallic implantable strands and cables.
1.2 This specification is intended to assist in the development of specific strand and cable specifications. It is particularly appropriate for high load bearing applications. It is not intended however, to address all of the possible variations in construction, material, or properties.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
