"Implant material"



2004

I believe that 316L stainless steel is the basic material for trauma implant products, bone screws, plates, etc. The main suppliers of the raw material quote versions of "purified" 316L such as Sandvik's 316VLM. Is there an industry standard which insists on this purified 316L or is basic 316 L acceptable?
