    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for the manufacture of wrought cobalt-20chromium-15tungsten-10nickel surgical fixation wire. The starting material, dimensions, and tolerances shall conform to the requirements specified. The surgical fixation wire is usually furnished in the bright-annealed condition. Mechanical properties of the surgical fixation wire such as tensile strength and elongation shall be determined.

    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 the manufacture of wrought cobalt-20chromium-15tungsten-10nickel surgical fixation wire.

    1.2 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
