The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has released the 2020 edition of its Standard 35 – 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 Powder Metallurgy.
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 data on Sinter-Hardened Steel FLC2-4208 and Iron-Copper and Copper steel FC-0205-42 & FC-0208-53, as well as new Engineering
Information for aluminium axial fatigue and thermal conductivity.
This standard does not apply to materials for PM self-lubricating bearings (SLB), powder forged (PF) or Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) products which are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35.
The new MPIF Standard 35— Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts is available to purchase via the MPIF website.
