Carbon Steel Powder Metallurgy

As a leading sintered iron parts manufacturer, Atlas Pressed Metals offers carbon steel powder metallurgy. Unalloyed PM iron (F-0000) materials are typically used for lightly loaded structural applications and also for structural parts requiring self-lubrication when strength is not critical. At high densities, unalloyed iron is used for soft-magnetic applications. PM carbon steel (F-0005) materials are used primarily where moderate strength and hardness combined with machinability (drilling, tapping, lathe turning, milling, etc.) are desired.

PM steels with higher carbon content (F-0008) are used when loading is moderate. F-0008 is more difficult to machine than F-0005. F-0008 and F-0005 materials may be heat treated to enhance strength and wear resistance. They may also be steam-treated for improved shelf life, pore closure and to increase hardness.
