ISO 7153-1:2016 pdf free.Surgical instruments – Materials
This part of ISO 7153 specifies metals commonly used to manufacture various types of standard surgical instruments, including but not limited to those used in general surgery, orthopaedics and dentistry.
While this part of ISO 7153 is not intended for surgical instruments used in special applications, such as implantology and minimally invasive surgery, parts of it might be applicable to those instruments.
NOTE When selecting the grade of steel and the shape, dimensions and delivery conditions of the raw material for manufacturing surgical instruments, it is necessary to take into account factors, such as the design of the instrument or the production facilities of the manufacturer, that are not covered by this part of ISO 7153. For this reason, it is not intended, nor is it possible, for the information given in this part of ISO 7153 to remove the decision-making responsibility from the instrument manufacturer for selecting an appropriate raw product with suitable properties; nor is it intended to preclude the use of other types of steel in the manufacture of instruments, such as the use of carbon steel for cutting instruments. International Standards for surgical instruments, when published, can be observed when making this decision as they may contain additional or new information to be taken into account when selecting appropriate steel grades.
Since there are different requirements to various surgical instruments, there also have to be different requirements to the materials from which the instruments are manufactured. For this reason, not all of the materials listed within Clause 4 are suited to use in every type of instrument. For most types of surgical instruments, materials are given in Tables 1 to 3 which are known from experience to be suitable for those instruments. Although it might be possible that other materials are also suited to the manufacture of some types of instruments, this is not covered by this part of ISO 7153.ISO 7153-1 pdf free download.
