Filters and foams 247X145

Filters And Forms

Gas atomized metal powder specially designed for use in structural foams (open and closed cell) and functional filters, for applications where hot and wet corrosion resistance are critical. Application examples include  fuel filters and heat pipe for thermal management.



Metal powders and sols are used as catalysts in many organic reactions. The catalyst’s activity increases by deposition on a carrier. Monodisperse powders with uniform distribution of the catalyst on the surface are produced by applying chemically reduced metal sols on the carrier particle surface.
