Standard Specification for Wrought Titanium-12Molybdenum-6Zirconium-2Iron Alloy for Surgical Implant (UNS R58120)

Abstract

This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for wrought titanium-12 molybdenum- 6 zirconium-2 iron alloy for surgical implants to be used in the manufacture of surgical implants. The heat analysis shall conform to the chemical composition requirements prescribed. Ingot analysis may be used for reporting all chemical requirements, except hydrogen. The wrought titanium-12 molybdenum-6 zirconium-2 iron alloy are classified as bar, forging bar and wire. The ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and area reduction of the material shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for wrought titanium-12molybdenum-6zirconium-2iron alloy mill products to be used in the manufacture of surgical implants.2

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 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 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.
