Standard Specification for Metal Injection Molded Titanium-6Aluminum-4Vanadium Components for Surgical Implant Applications

Scope

1.1 This specification covers chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical requirements for two types of metal injection molded (MIM) titanium-6aluminum-4vanadium components to be used in the manufacture of surgical implants.

1.2 The Type 1 MIM components covered by this specification may have been densified beyond their as-sintered density by post sinter processing.

1.3 Units—The values in either inch-pound or SI are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independent of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the specification.

1.4 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.

1.5 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.
