Fine Iron Powder

Iron Powder Typical Applications

Iron powder is used in many different industries. Following are examples of Iron Powder applications.

Sintered Components

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. Sintered parts using iron powder

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. Soft magnetic parts using iron powder

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 900C. 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 created. Iron powder used in Brazing pastes

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 alternative methods.


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 used in brake pads

 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.

Surface Coating

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. Iron powder used in magnetic paints

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 iron powders.
