Office and Postal Address: The results indicated the diffusion growth of the compound layer. Glow-discharge nitriding of ISO steel at high temperature: 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 other parts of these standards cover other alloys for implants, including titanium, nickel and cobalt alloys. The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with 58321 compositions for these special applications.

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. In addition to the special composition limits, there are additional requirements that preclude the use of standard ” grades, produced by normal, commercial, steelmaking methods.


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. The treatment times were 1, 3 and 5 hours.

Selection of stainless steels for surgical implants Introduction Stainless steels for surgical implants are specified in ISO The increased time promoted a greater uptake of nitrogen in the material, however, due to higher bulk diffusion and the 5382-1 formation of thicker layers, phases poor in this element were identified.

Although not made mandatory by the standards, vacuum or electroslag re-melt steelmaking methods are suggested to meet the specified steel cleanness levels. Stainless steels for surgical implants are specified in ISO Stainless steel grades for surgical implants The three grades listed in these standards are austenitic types with specific compositions for these special applications.

The gain in mass, as well as growth of the nitrided layer, increased with treatment time. The compositions, in percent, are shown below: There was also a decrease in hardness of the nitrided layer with increasing treatment time.

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.
