Australian Metal Powders Supplies (AMPS)

Metal powder applications

Here are some other applications our metal powders can be used for.

Thermal surfacing
Thermal surfacing

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 Thermal spray powders.

Architectural
Architectural and paints

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.

• Cold cast applications
• Sculptures
• Industrial and decorative paints

Products used are Aluminium, Brass, Bronze, Copper, Graphite, Iron powders, Nickel flakes, Stainless Steel and Stainless Steel flakes, Tin, Zinc, and Zinc flakes.

Architectural
Additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing or direct digital manufacturing, is a process of building components in layers directly from 3D CAD data, without the need for complex and costly tools and with minimal waste material.

Unlike rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing goes to the next level by being able to mass-produce end-user products.

Product types used are Aluminium, Copper alloys, Cobalt, Nickel, Stainless Steel.

Decorative applications
Printing and screen printing

• Dusting
• Printing inks: Gravure, Flexo, Offset
• Screenprinting
• Coatings on paper or foil substrates

Products used are Aluminium, Bronze powders and pastes, Nickel flakes and Stainless Steel flakes.
