Powder Characteristics – Quality & Consistency

Praxair’s cobalt, iron, nickel, and titanium metal powders for additive manufacturing flow easily and deposit evenly. This results in successive layers with consistent density and uniform build rates. This produces products that meet the mechanical, performance, and final part specifications of 3D printed parts.

Additive manufacturing powders are offered in a wide variety of particle size distributions and can be customized for your specific application. Praxair's TrueForm metal powders feature:

  • Approved aerospace-grade
  • Free-flowing
  • Even deposits
  • Fully Dense
