How to 532-1 this article. Stainless steel grades for surgical implants The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with specific compositions for these special applications. Glow-discharge nitriding of ISO steel at high temperature: There was also a decrease in hardness of the nitrided layer with increasing treatment time.
Services on Demand Journal. Office and Postal Address: The other parts of these standards cover other alloys for implants, including titanium, nickel and cobalt alloys. The increased time promoted a greater uptake of nitrogen in the material, however, due to higher bulk diffusion and the consequent formation of thicker layers, phases poor in this element were identified.

Both standards require that the non-metallic inclusion levels are measured when the steel is in the billet form and set limits for sulhpide, aluminate, silicate and oxide inclusion types.
Selection of stainless steels for surgical implants Introduction Stainless steels for surgical implants are specified in ISO Part 1 covers two steel types, compositions D and E.
The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with specific compositions for these special applications. Part 9 covers a single high nitrogen grade.
All steels must have an ASTM grain size finer ie a higher number than No4 and be free from detectable ferrite. The results indicated the diffusion growth of the compound layer. The gain in mass, as well as growth of the 8532-1 layer, increased with treatment time.

The compositions, in percent, are shown below: For the subsequent SHTPN treatment the nitriding time of 3 h was the most suitable, mainly due to grain size, associated with the obtained nitrogen incorporation. Although not made mandatory by the standards, vacuum or electroslag re-melt steelmaking methods are suggested to meet the specified steel cleanness levels.

Treated samples were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction XRDscanning electron microscopy SEM and Vickers microhardness, as well as analyze of the mass variation.
The grades in Part 1 are sometimes wrongly referred to as the ‘ implant grades’, although the chromium, nickel and molybdenum contents overlap some of the commercially available steels.
In addition to the special composition limits, there are additional requirements that preclude the use of standard ” grades, produced by normal, commercial, steelmaking methods.
