The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has announced the publication of a revised and expanded version of Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts – 2012 Edition.


Standard 35 provides design and materials engineers with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials for structural parts made by the Powder Metallurgy (PM) process.

Developed by the PM commercial parts manufacturing industry, each section of the standard is clearly distinguished by easy-to-read data tables and explanatory information for each material listed. Detailed explanatory notes and definitions, along with data cited in both Inch–Pound and SI units, help to make the standard more user friendly.

Publication of the 2012 Edition of this standard renders the 2009 Edition (and prior editions) obsolete. Previous editions should no longer be distributed but destroyed, state MPIF.

The 2012 Edition contains:

• NEW Materials & Mechanical Property Data

Prealloyed Steel

FL-5108, as-sintered

Hybrid Low-Alloy Steel

FLN2-3905, as-sintered and heat treated
