The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has published the 2024 edition of MPIF Standard 35-SP – Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts. The document provides design and materials engineers with the latest engineering property data and information available to specify materials for structural parts made using the Powder Metallurgy process.
The MPIF explains that each user-friendly section of the standard is clearly distinguished by easy-to-read data tables (inch-pound and SI units) and provides explanatory information for each material listed.

Revised and expanded, this standard was developed by the Powder Metallurgy commercial parts manufacturing industry and includes new material data on prealloyed steel FL-5008 and stainless steel SS-409L-25, revised typical values for iron-copper and copper steel FC-0205-HT & FC-0208-HT, revised typical TRS values for iron-nickel and nickel steel FN-2025-HT & FN-0208-HT, and updated processing conditions for soft magnetic alloys.
The MPIF stated that this standard does not apply to materials for PM self-lubricating bearings (SLB), powder forged (PF) or Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) products that are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35. It was added that publication of the 2024 edition of this standard now renders the 2020 edition (and prior editions) obsolete.
