Irregular Copper Powder
MMP Irregular Copper Powders (ICP) are available in multiple grades, each characterized according to, for example, particle size, specific surface area, apparent density and chemistry. ICP grades are manufactured by a water-atomizing process in our modern, purpose-built facility.
Material properties are engineered by careful control of processing parameters, allowing us to offer tailored solutions to our customers’ requirements.
Irregular Copper Powders include ‘NLD’, ‘Hymod’ and Cu(R), a newly developed oxidized-reduced product, these grades offering low to medium apparent density, good green strength and compressibility. ‘Pure Copper’ is also available where very low levels of impurity are demanded (for example, in the preparation of Master Alloys) and for niche applications.
ICP is available in a variety of UN-approved packaging options, including 25kg sacks, 25-250kg steel drums and 250-1,000kg bulk bags.
Irregular Copper Powders are used in very many applications, markets and technologies by virtue of the wide range of physical and chemical properties available.
Typical applications include admixing in the production of iron powders, friction components, metallurgical alloying, decorative and architectural finishes, welding and brazing, diamond tooling, thermal management, surface engineering, electrical contacts, antimicrobial coatings, veterinary science and winning of precious metals.
