Ferrous Metal Powders
WR offer a wide range of Ferro-alloyed powders in a variety of weights, mesh sizes and geometry. The majority of these can be specifically tailored in terms of chemistry to our customer’s needs.
Ferrous Metal Powders usually contain less than 50% Iron and are alloyed with a high percentage of another parent element, principally Chromium, Manganese and Silicon.
A list of our Ferrous Metal Powders is shown below. If you would like any further information about our powders, or any advice on further applications, our experienced team are available to help. Just call our office or fill out a quick enquiry form.
Ferrous Metal Powders Use
Ferrous Metal Powders contain Iron and are alloyed with a high percentage of another parent element. Principal Ferrous alloys include Chromium, Manganese and Silicon, but other popular grades and uses include:
- Ferro Sulphide A mineral and by-product of steel making formed during the pickling process, is used in further manufacturing processes. It is an effective source of Iron in animal feed but is also found in radiation shielding, catalysts and fertilisers.
- Ferro Boron, which is formed by reduction of Boric Acid in the presence of Carbon Steel, Iron or sometimes Magnesium. Used in the production of magnets or improving the hardenability of low alloy steels, and the manufacture of metallic glass.
- Ferro Phosphorus. Another by product of the steel making process, recent developments in Ferro Phosphorus powder has enabled sintered steels to have high strengths in combination with good ductility. It is also used as a deoxidiser in the metals industry and can be found as an additive during the production of metallic paints.
