Metal powder applications
Here are some other applications our metal powders can be used for.
Unlike traditional fabrication techniques such as forging, casting and machining, iron powder is compacted under very high pressure in a die. The component is then sintered (heat-treated) to give it the requisite mechanical strength.
Products used are Iron powder.
A metal object can be surface coated to achieve high resistance to wear and corrosion. The powders are suited to powder welding, flame spraying, HVOF, PTA and laser cladding.
Products used are Hardfacing powders.
Metal powders can be added to resins or paints and applied to the surfaces of objects, to give them the appearance of being made of solid metal.
