Granular Copper powder CUPDR:
CUPDR is a high purity 99.9% copper powder
made from electrolytic copper.
Physical Specs: Granular 150 mesh.
|Analysis in percent
Copper powders have been used
in industrial applications for many years. Probably the best
known is the self-lubricating bearing which was the first
major application and still accounts for about 70% of the
granular copper powder used. This application takes
advantage of the ability to produce a component with
controlled interconnected and surface-connected porosity.
The production of metallic filters also takes advantage of
Pure copper powder is used in
the electrical and the electronics industries because of its
excellent electrical and thermal conductivities. Alloyed
with tin, zinc, nickel and other elements, copper in powder
form is used in structural parts and friction materials.
Brasses, bronzes and other copper alloys produced by powder
metallurgy methods have the physical and mechanical
properties of their cast or wrought counterparts. Copper is
used also as an alloying element in iron powder components
to enhance the mechanical properties and control dimensional
changes during sintering, the addition being made either by
mixing or by infiltration.
Copper powder applications include:
- powder metallurgy (PM)
- metal injection molding (MIM)
- friction components
- thermal management
- diamond cutting tools
- carbon brush
- brazing paste
Metal Powder Typical
Iron powder is used in many
different industries. Following are examples of Iron Powder
|Metal powders open up new
possibilities for creative and cost-effective design solutions. Almost
80% of global iron and steel powder production is converted into
sintered components. The manufacturing process involves the shaping of a
tailor-made powder formulation by pressure and heat (sintering).
Sintered components offer design freedom, almost 100% material
utilization and many other benefits.
Over 40 million sintered
components are produced every day for use in numerous applications including
vehicles, power tools and white goods.
Our high purity iron powders may be used for sintered parts with or without
adding other metallic powders.
Soft Magnetic Composites
|Soft Magnetic Composites (SMC) is the
internationally recognized name for pressed and heat-treated metal
powder components with three-dimensional (3D) magnetic properties. SMC
materials are composed of surface-insulated iron powder particles, that
are compacted to form uniform isotropic components with complex shapes
in a single step.
The use of these materials now
makes innovative electrical machine designs industrially viable.
|High temperature brazing is a joining
process carried out under vacuum or in a controlled (reducing)
atmosphere with a brazing temperature above 900°C. At brazing the
brazing filler metal melts and is drawn by capillarity while molten into
the thin space between the base material (not melted) that are to be
joined. When cooled a strong and leak free metallurgical bond is
Chemical and Metallurgical
Iron powder can be used in several chemical and metallurgical processes from the
production of aluminum foil to magnetic paints.
Our products also play a role in
the recycling of industrial chemicals and are utilized in steel plants and may
be used in pharmaceutical industry.
For some applications there is more or less no alternative to iron powder. These
applications often have special requirements for specific properties and
stringent demands for consistency. In other applications the high surface area
and/or purity of iron powder can offer more cost-effective solutions compared to
|Friction materials are utilized in the
braking systems of automobiles, commercial vehicles, aircraft,
motorcycles, trains and off-road vehicles and in other industrial
applications. In simple terms, these materials help stop vehicles as a
part of the brake pad or drum brake lining. The exact composition of a
brake lining is often a closely guarded secret, and the process of
achieving it is almost as much an art as a science.
Iron powder is a key
ingredient in semi-metallic brake linings, enhancing both the performance and
the long-term reliability and durability of the product.
Thermal surfacing - an opportunity to achieve the desired performance
characteristics on exposed metal surfaces.
|Iron powders may be used as
high-quality thermal surfacing powders. They offer a proven,
cost-effective method to improve both the performance and endurance of
components in high-wear and corrosive environment. Examples include
engine valves, printing rollers, glass bottle moulds and steel rollers.
Research and Education
|Physical science experiments involving magnets and
electromagnetism use iron powders in many different ways. Chemical science
experiments such as making iron compounds also benefit from high purity of our
