The Global PM Property Database (GPMD) has been enhanced to include examples of PM microstructures to assist PM parts manufacturers and end-users during the interpretation of PM microstructures. The new inclusion aims to help to build an appreciation of metallography as a powerful engineering tool for component design, new materials and quality control solutions.

The GPMD was launched in 2004 as a joint project between the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA), Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and Japan Powder Metallurgy Association (JPMA).

The updated database will now allow the user to reference the microstructural phases in materials processed by conventional sintering, elevated temperature sintering, accelerated post-sintering cooling, and more. The update also offers users guidance on specimen preparation and proper etchant selection. The data is displayed in a user-friendly format viewable in both tabular and graphic formats and it is hoped it will be of particular interest to design engineers in a range of industries.
