Revision of F1609-08(2014) Standard Specification for Calcium Phosphate Coatings for Implantable Materials


To follow up the discussion in the ASTM 2018 Fall meeting held in Washington DC, the ASTM F04.13 Ceramic Materials members have been tasked to review some of the existing coating standards which are over 5 years old to see if updates are needed so that the standards can meet the current needs. ASTM F1609-2008 is over 10 years old and many new types of calcium phosphate coatings and characterization techniques covered or referenced in this standard have been developed and/or improved since then. Dr. Limin Sun has been tasked to review this standard and has identified some major issues which warrants potential revisions to this standard.
