Standard Specification for Wrought Nitrogen Strengthened 11Manganese-17Chromium-3Molybdenum Low-Nickel Stainless Steel Alloy Bar and Wire for Surgical Implants (UNS S29225)

Abstract

This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for wrought nitrogen strengthened 11manganese-17chromium-3molybdenum (UNS S29225) low-nickel stainless steel alloy bars and wires for surgical implants. The alloys shall be furnished in the annealed or cold-worked condition, and finished cold-drawn, pickled, ground, ground and polished, or as specified by the purchaser. Mechanical properties to which the alloys shall conform are ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and reduction of area.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for wrought nitrogen strengthened 11manganese-17chromium-3molybdenum low-nickel stainless steel alloy bar and wire for 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.

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 and health 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.
