Product Description

316LVM Special Stainless Steel for Surgical Implants ASTM F138 ISO 5832-1



316LVM(low carbo, vacuum melted),  is an electro-slag remelted (ESR) or vacuum arc remelted (VAR), low carbon, high nickel and molybdenum version of 316 stainless, which is considered to be  a reasonable choice for surgical implants.


The chemical requirements for surgical implant 316LVM stainless steel are documented in ASTM F 138 and ISO 5832-1 specifications. A similar analysis of stainless steel is also available as ASTM A276 commercial quality alloy with different composition limits and microstructure features when compared to implant quality.
