Iron powder for pressing & sintering
See our standard iron powder range below. Always contact you local sales for more details or specific grades.
Atomised iron powder
Standard atomised iron grade for all-purpose use.
Suited for high density structural parts and also as a base material for soft magnetic applications. Used as base for some Distaloy® powders.
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
The green and edge strengths of the compacts are very high due to the spongy structure of the powder particles.
It has slightly higher apparent density than NC100.24 and should be used particularly where high density after single pressing and sintering is desirable.
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.
