    Abstract

    This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for four grades of unalloyed titanium strips, sheets, plates, bars, billets, forgings, and wires used for the manufacture of surgical implants. The four grades identified here are defined as follows: Grade 1UNS R50250; Grade 2UNS R50400; Grade 3UNS R50550; and Grade 4UNS R50700. Mill products may be supplied with a descaled or pickled, abrasive blasted, chemically milled, ground, machined, peeled, or polished finish, or as specified by the purchaser. Materials shall be furnished in the hotworked, cold-worked, forged, annealed, or stress-relieved condition. Mechanical properties to which the titanium materials shall conform are ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and reduction of area.

    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 chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for four grades of unalloyed titanium strip, sheet, plate, bar, billet, forging, and wire used for the manufacture of surgical implants.

    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.
