Bronze Powders Supplied By Makin Metal Powders
We are a specialist supplier of bronze powders in a range of particle sizes and shapes which meet specific technical requirements such as Apparent Density and composition. We manufacture bronze powders on site here in Rochdale and sell large quantities into a wide range of markets and applications around the world.
Bronze Powders Technical Description
Bronze powders are manufactured by water-atomising or air-atomising. In addition, we can offer Dendritic Bronze Powders (see “Speciality Powders”) produced via a sinter-diffusion bonding route to give irregular, spherical and dendritic morphologies respectively. Properties and, therefore, uses vary with particle shape / size / surface area, composition and by carefully selecting the correct grade, bronze powders find applications in diverse markets and technologies.
Our bronze powders are characterised by
Tight chemical control
- Low lead (Pb) content
- Good sinterability
- Highly reproducible batch after batch
- Available in a variety of UN-approved packaging options including 25kg sacks, steel drums (50-100kg) and Big Bags (250, 500, 1000kg).
Usage & Applications
Bronze powders are used in very many applications, markets and technologies by virtue of the diverse range of physico-chemical properties. Typical applications include pressed and sintered components, bearings and bushings, steel-backed bearings (bi-metal strip), friction parts, filters, bronze-filled PTFE for hydraulic seals, surface engineering, decorative, welding and brazing, diamond tooling, etc.
