ASTM F138 Stainless Steel 316LVM Surgical Rods are typically made using a precision-machining process. This process begins with the melting of the stainless steel alloy and includes various steps, such as annealing, heat treatment, drawing, cutting, and polishing. The rods are then inspected to ensure they meet all ASTM standards before they can be used in surgical applications. Each rod is electropolished to remove any impurities and give it a smooth surface finish. Finally, the finished product is sent through one last round of quality assurance testing before being released for sale.
NDT testing is good to evaluate the integrity of stainless steel 316LVM hex bar and square bar
Application and advantages of ASTM F138 UNS S31673 rod
Advantages of Stainless Steel 316LVM Round Bar:
- Durable and resistant to rust and corrosion: This stainless steel grade is highly durable and offers superior resistance to rusting or corrosion in various environments compared to other grades of stainless steel.
- High-temperature tolerance: The alloy’s high melting point makes it perfect for applications that require extended heat exposure without damaging the product or surrounding structures.
- Excellent tensile strength: The metal has a high tensile strength which helps provide better structural support and resilience against wear and tear caused by repeated use.
- Easy fabrication: This type of stainless steel is easily machined which makes it ideal for producing complex shapes and parts in both short and long runs with minimal effort and cost.
- Aesthetically pleasing: Stainless Steel 202 Round Bar offers a glossy finish that looks sleek when used in architectural projects such as bridges or sculptures.
