    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements of wrought 35cobalt-35nickel-20chromium-10molybdenum alloy (UNS R30035) in the form of bar and wire, used for the manufacture of surgical implants. This alloy depends on combinations of work strengthening and aging to attain a variety of combinations of strength and ductility.

    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.
