AISI 316L is an austenitic steel powder with very low carbon content for uses where good formability must be coupled with excellent resistance to corrosion.
Excellent resistance to corrosion even in the presence of chloride ions and fairly good in the presence of weak solutions of reducing acids.
AISI 304L is the most common between the austenitic stainless steel, with an excellent corrosion resistance, ductility, formability and weldability.
It can be used in many application: from cryogenic temperatures up to 900°C, from household appliances to white goods, as well ad tanks for chemical products.
Pometon can produce and supply AISI 316L & AISI 304L powder with different particle size distribution, with specific chemical composition and mixed with different types of lubricants.

Here in Pometon Titanium Alloys Powders are now available!
Additive manufacturing technologies require various size distributions of powder, and not all powder atomization methods are suitable for titanium and reactive alloys.
Electrode Inert Gas Atomization (EIGA) is a crucible-free technology and for this reason is one of the famous methods of producing powder for additive manufacturing.
#EIGA continuously feeds a rotating, high-purity, pre-alloyed bars into an induction coil to form a molten stream that free-falls directly into a high-velocity inert gas, producing highly spherical powder particles. The powders produced by EIGA demonstrate superior chemistry, flowability and exhibited very round morphology and very high bulk density.
The Pometon R&D Centre uses the Freeman FT4 Rheometer to characterize the physical properties of powders such as flowability, bulk density and compaction capacity.
For the production of powders for Additive Manufacturing and for the development of Ready to Press products for the Press & Sintering sector, the high-level characterization is the fundamental characteristic that guarantees the supply of high quality powders and technical support of excellence.
The combination of metal sulphides with "green and ecologically clean" metallic Bismuth can be considered a modern technology to be used in the brake pad industry to replace expensive or dangerous solid lubricants.
With properties very similar to lead, Bismuth is considered non-toxic and also used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Bismuth can replace lead, previously and widely used as a solid lubricant, in many applications including that of brake pads. Bismuth also has a very high synergy with sulfur, one of the widely used elements, linked to other metals, in the compounds of brake pads for the replacement of copper.
Pometon Spa produces air-atomized Bismuth powders of different grain sizes to help its customers use environmentally friendly materials that are less subject to economic fluctuations in various application sectors including brake pads.
Pometon displays its Bismuth solutions at the FISITA EuroBrake 2022!
Pometon Spa is an environmentally friendly partner to its customers, which recognizes its social responsibility for a sustainable future and its commitment to the Circular Economy.
Recycling of materials and respect for the environment are two fundamental values for the Company.
Pometon starts from scraps, transforming them into metal powders to be reintroduced into the market, allowing its customers to create finished products with the lowest possible environmental impact.
Fabio Calzavara - Regional coordinator of the Triveneto section of A.I.MAN. Italian Maintenance Association, Head of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) of Pometon Spa - is the protagonist of the January focus on maintenance 4.0 of "Lamiera", Meccanica News technical magazine for deformation, cutting, finishing and assembly of metal sheets.
"Dealing with safety - he said - means dealing with a technological heritage guided by a clear and long-term vision, which must belong to the Company maintenance policy (...). Maintenance means taking care of the entire life cycle of an asset from design to installation up to management and disposal, then technical, safety and environmental aspects.
(...) evolved companies accurately balance different variable policies between corrective, preventive, predictive maintenance which, through data analysis and processing, identifies the most convenient time or the best improving maintenance, accompanied by technological upgrades.
(...) the mission of maintenance engineering is to harmonize these factors by establishing an appropriate mix, depending on variables such as the complexity of the asset, operating conditions, professionalism of the operators, impact of raw materials, saturation in operation ".
The daily experience in Pometon Spa leads to interpreting this philosophy to protect people in terms of safety and environmental protection, as well as guaranteeing continuity to the processes. This necessarily passes through organizational and procedural techniques but also through the use of technologies such as thermography, ultrasound and other non-destructive methods.
The advantage in terms of improving operational and environmental / safety KPI's is significant and a trend of continuous improvement is maintained.
2021 was an intense year, full of challenges which, despite the difficulties, the Pometon Team overcame brilliantly.
We successfully launched the new PometonPlus division, focussed on the development of customized powders for 3D Printing and we completed the modernization of the R&D laboratory, which allowed the business to develop and patent new products.
We improved the characteristics of existing products, expanded our product range and we guaranteed a punctual and attentive service to the customer's needs.
We entered into new partnerships, such as the important 3D Printing Strategic Alliance for Dubai, and achieved European projects on Additive Manufacturing.
We participated in the Eurobrake and EuroPM 2021 online and we were finally physically present at Formnext 2021.
