Steel powder PM-ST101P

Powmet AISI 316L steel powder, -45+10µm

PM-ST101P is an austenitic stainless steel in form of powders with nominal particle size between 10 and 45μm. The product is
generally used, by means of Selective Laser Melting process or comparable Additive Manufacturing technologies, for the production
of components and functional parts which require high resistance to the oxidation and corrosion for mechanical and structural
application. Due to the absence of cytotoxicity agents release, this alloy can find application also in the biomedical field, such as
in the food and pharmaceutical sectors. The powder is carefully prepared by using a special atomizing process, that guarantees
spherical powder particle geometry and maximizing the powder quality.
