Product Description

Bone Plates Special Stainless Steel 316LVM For Surgical Implants



Su Zhou XUNSHI New Material Co Ltd can provide cost-effective surgical implants 316LVM for domestic and foreign customers, and the stainless steel UNS S31673 can be produced in accordance with the national standard 4234.1-2017,American standard ASTM F138 or ISO5832-1 and other relevant specifications.


316LVM goes through a process of electric arc melting, followed by vacuum arc remelting that results in a highly uniform chemistry that contains a minimal amount of impurities. Due to its lack of contaminants and high resistance to corrosion, 316LVM is commonly used in temporary and permanent medical implants (sutures, surgical staples and bone pins) and body piercing jewelry.
