Characterisation of metallic powders in the space sector

Your needs: characterise metal powders for the space sector

What is a metal powder?

A metal powder is a powder made from metals by various processes:

  • Grinding of solid metal
  • Precipitation of a salt from a solution
  • Thermal decomposition of metal carbonyl (carbonyl process)
  • Solid state reduction of metal oxide
  • Electrodeposition
  • Atomisation of molten metal

Why characterise a metal powder for the space sector?

To achieve consistently high quality of metal components, the properties of metal powders must be carefully analysed and characterised to ensure good powder flow, packing and friction, and the best metal composition.

Thus, to ensure the quality of the parts produced, metal powders must meet many requirements to achieve the expected performance.
