Every lot of powder, whether it be 5 lbs. or 60,000 lbs., gets tested and shipped with a Certificate of Analysis (C of A) to assure the blend meets the customer’s specifications. The properties we test for include Apparent Density, Flow, Sieve, Compressibility, Spring Back, Green Strength, Sintered Dimensional Change (with or without Hydrogen), Hardness, Transverse Rupture, and Chemical. After testing, a two-pound sample of the blend is retained for one year.
