Inspiring industries with metal powder solutions

At Höganäs, we help our customers utilise innovative powder solutions that not only reduce material and energy consumption, but also improve the performance of final products. In areas as diverse as magnetic paint and iron fortification, we believe metal powder technology can provide a cost-effective alternative across a huge variety of industries.

As the world’s largest supplier of metal powders, with in-depth experience across numerous application techniques, our expertise is wide and varied.

Höganäs is at the forefront of 3D printing in the healthcare sector, providing durable metal powder solutions for customised medical implants and complex surgical tools. For the past 70 years, we have designed powders for welding consumables, meeting the precise specifications of a diverse range of customers. Our fine iron powder is even used to fortify food, helping to combat anaemia.

In the agricultural sector, our resilient surface coatings have dramatically improved the operating life of harvest equipment and ground engagement tools. More recently, Höganäs has devised a low-density powder that offers greater design flexibility, making it suitable for sintered armour plates used in body armour, among many other product components.

Ultimately, we believe the opportunity for innovative and sustainable powder metallurgy knows no bounds, and it is our mission to help a wide variety of industries realise its full potential.
