Aluminum Powder is used in the production of many types of explosives and fire works. It is also employed in the manufacturing of certain types of electronics. Powdered aluminum is included in many paints and sealants. Certain products design to carry electrical current, such as solar cells are often made using aluminum powder. Rocket Fuel is often made with aluminum and many solid rocket fuels are based on chemical reactions involving this metal.

Powdered Metals Providing Versatile Appearance in Painting Applications

During the final phase of the manufacturing process, many products and components are coated with a paint to create a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance as well as to seal over the material to improve corrosion and stain resistance. When talking about most painting applications, people are aware of both oil-based and water-based paints. Yet metallic paints…

Discussion and Current Applications for 3d Metal Printing

Are you experimenting with 3D metal printing? Current industry trends say that 3D metal printing will overtake casting by 2020, according to Spotlight Metal, and it’s already being used for small batches of products and parts. If you’re on the forefront of this new manufacturing process or thinking about it, you’re probably interested in the…

3D Metal Printing: Alloys and Powder Types and Specs

Whether creating prototypes for application components, precision gears, or jewelry, more manufacturers are turning to the capabilities provided by 3D metal printing. Also called additive manufacturing, this process relies on technology that uses a metal powder in a layering process to produce the three-dimensional part. There are several methods used in the 3-D metal printing…

Common Uses for Powdered Metals

If you are debating the best form or metal to use for your manufacturing business, you may be surprised to learn that powdered metals have just as many uses as their metal alloy counterparts. In fact, adding a powdered metal to your master alloy can increase certain desirable properties and decrease certain undesirable properties. Our…

Cold Working Aluminum Alloys

When considering working and manufacturing with metals, particularly with aluminum, the first thoughts are centered on the heating process with hot furnaces where the metal is heated to extremely high temperatures and then wrought or cast into form. However, there is another type of process to strengthen the metal that involves adding other alloys to…

Custom creations

Aluminum master alloys help metallurgists fine-tune alloys to create materials that are stronger, lighter, and more easily processed Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element in the Earth’s crust—it’s even more common than Iron. In its pure form, though, it’s soft and malleable. It needs to be alloyed with other elements, including Iron, Zinc, Silicon,…
