Surgical implants, e.g. Plates and screws.
Low carbon, chromium nickel molybdenum steel
with low carbon content.
Structure homogeneous, stable austenite.
Weldable with analogous filler metal giving fully
Resistant to intergranular corrosion in the tempera-
ture range up to 400°C.
Resistance to acids having a reducing effect, like
diluted sulphuric acid and hydrochloric acid is good.
The steel is not suceptible to pitting, crevice and
stress corrosion cracking in media containing
chloride ions and possesses excellent resistance to
the attack of urea and biocompatibility.
Cold forming properties are good.
The steel is capable of taking a mirror finish.
