Article: Selection of stainless steels for surgical implants
The other parts of these standards cover other alloys for implants, including titanium, nickel and cobalt alloys. Selection of stainless steels for surgical implants Introduction Stainless steels for surgical implants are specified in ISO The treatment times were 1, 3 and 5 hours. Izo 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. Part 1 covers two steel types, compositions D and E.
In addition to the special composition limits, there are additional requirements that preclude the use of standard ” grades, produced by normal, commercial, steelmaking methods. Although not made mandatory by the standards, vacuum or electroslag re-melt steelmaking methods 8532-1 suggested to meet the specified steel cleanness levels.

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.
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.
Stainless steels for surgical ieo are specified in ISO Office and Postal Address: The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with specific compositions for these special applications. The compositions, in percent, are shown below: The gain in mass, as well as growth of the nitrided layer, increased with treatment time. 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.
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.
Stainless steel grades for surgical implants The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with specific compositions for these special applications. There was also a decrease in hardness of the nitrided layer with increasing treatment time.
Part 9 covers a single high nitrogen grade.
