Ferrous Alloy powder
  • Ferrous Alloy powder
  • Alloy powders (mostly targeting specific applications in Sintering field) are produced with most common alloying metals like FeP, Mo, Ni, Cu.
  • Process of alloying can start directly on the smelting bath, or using the diffusion bonding or finally by mixing and homogenisation.
