ASTM F564: Standard Specification and Test Methods for Metallic Bone Staples.

This specification covers characterization of the design and mechanical function of metallic staples used in the internal fixation of the muscular skeletal system. It is not the intention of this specification to describe or specify specific designs for metallic bone staples.

This specification includes the following four test methods for measuring mechanical properties of metallic bone staples:  


  • Test Method for Constant Amplitude Bending Fatigue
  • Test Method for Pull-Out Fixation Strength of Metallic Bone Staples
  • Test Method for Soft Tissue Fixation Strength of Metallic Bone Staples
  • Test Method for Elastic Static Bending of Metallic Bone Staples
