Copper powder PM-CU101P

Powmet copper powder, -25+5µm

PM-CU101P is a gas atomized copper powder, specifically developed for laser melting applications. PM-CU101P is carefully prepared by using a special atomizing process, that guarantees spherical powder particle geometry and maximizing the powder quality. Composition and size distribution (-25+5μm) have been designed to maximize energetic absorption from laser beam during the laser melting process. PM-CU101P can be used with success in all the laser melting machines. The powder offers xcellent flowability; it has extremely high shininess and lustrous color after finishing.
