Find your metal powder for 3D printing with PowderFinder

Iron-based construction steel powders for AM applications

Steels are the most widely used metal alloys in the industry. Höganäs offers three main types of steels: construction steels, stainless steels and tool steels.

Good availability and the cost effectiveness of iron make steels a true work horse in most industries. Combine an iron base with different alloying elements and you can create a wide assortment of steels with diverse properties.

Low-alloyed construction steels are used in the automotive and industries in general for production of construction and wear-resistant components.

Additive manufacturing is providing considerable advantages for these industries. Höganäs is offering steel-based metal powders, covering a broad selection of industrial demands when it comes to cost, properties and standardization level.
