Alloy Selection Guide

APP is unique for our ability to select and manufacture metals and alloys that go beyond common standards. We also manufacture the most basis MIM metals
and alloys.

Benefits:

bullet-yellow Select our own powders and manufacture our feedstock in house

bullet-yellow Fast reaction time for alloy/shrink modification

bullet-yellow Ability to process BASF Catamold Feedstock

bullet-yellow Mechanical properties exceeding MPIF Standard 35

bullet-yellow Diverse alloy choice from same tool

bullet-yellow Material Scientists/Engineers and P.E. Metallurgist on Staff

bullet-yellow In-house carbon testing
