Copper Powders Supplied By Makin Metal Powders

We are a specialist supplier of copper powders in a range of particle sizes and shapes which meet specific technical requirements such as Apparent Density and Purity. We manufacture copper powder on site here in Rochdale and sell large quantities into a wide range of markets and applications around the world.

Copper Powders Technical Description

Copper powders are manufactured by water-atomising, air-atomising or by electrolysis to give irregularspherical and dendritic morphologies respectively. Properties and, therefore, uses vary with particle shape / size / surface area and by carefully selecting the correct grade, copper powders find applications in diverse markets and technologies.

Our copper powders are characterised by:

  • High purity of copper powder
  • Low lead (Pb) content
  • Good reproducibility batch after batch
  • Available in a variety of UN-approved packaging options including 25kg sacks, steel drums (25-180kg) and Big Bags (250, 500, 1000kg).

Copper Usage & Applications

Copper powders are used in very many applications, markets and technologies by virtue of the diverse range of physico-chemical properties. The Density and Melting Point of copper powders make them an ideal choice for blending with iron powder for pressed and sintered components as well as for sintered brake parts.

Other properties of copper powders such as electrical and thermal conductivity, morphology, chemical reactivity and alloying possibilities give rise to their use in catalysis, anti-fouling paint, conductive oils and greases, alloying with other metals, carbon brushes, resin-bonded brake parts, thermal management, electro-magnetic radiation shielding for electronic devices, surface engineering and diamond tooling, and many more.

An emerging technology making use of copper’s unique properties is the control of infection due to its anti-microbial activity.

Our Copper Powder range covers the following products:
