Binder Jet - Wear Resistant Powders
BLDRmetal Powders Provide Next Level Combinations of Wear and Impact Resistance for Binder Jet AM
BLDRmetal™ J-10 and J-11 are designed for building highly wear resistant industrial components using binder jet additive manufacturing.
Binder Jetting is an additive manufacturing powder bed process, where a binder is used to selectively “print” the desired part shape by adhesively joining the metal particles. After the jetting process, the green part is sintered and an infiltrant, bronze, is melted and drawn into the part to create a dense component.
Parts made with bronze infiltrated BLDRmetal™ J-10 have 3x the wear resistance and nearly 3x the impact toughness of a bronze infiltrated 420 stainless steel component made using the same method. If even higher wear resistance is required, BLDRmetal™ J-11 can be selected to deliver 10x the wear of a bronze infiltrated 420SS component. Some applications benefit from properties that are between J-10 & J-11, by tailoring the proportions of two powders the final product can be designed to meet a variety of specifications.
Industrial applications for these wear powders include molds, dies, tools and drilling and pump components.
