Pure iron powders

Pure iron powders

Our pure iron powder grades are produced by atomization or reduction. These powders create the basis for most powder mixes for production of low alloyed sintered steels.

Atomized iron powder grades

AHC100.29
Standard atomised iron grade for all-purpose use.

ASC100.29
Suited for high density structural parts and also as a base material for soft magnetic applications. Used as base for some Distaloy® powders.

ABC100.30
Outstanding compressibility and chemical purity. Densities up to 7.4 g/cm³ are achievable with single pressing. Also used for high performing soft magnetic duties.

Sponge iron powder grades

NC100.24
The green and edge strengths of the compacts are very high due to the spongy structure of the powder particles.

SC100.26
It has slightly higher apparent density than NC100.24 and should be used particularly where high density after single pressing and sintering is desirable.

MH80.23
Specially designed to match the requirements for self-lubricating bearings. Its particle size range is chosen to give an optimum pore structure for this application. Can also be added to powder mixes in small quantities to substantially improve green strength.
