Powder Metal Sintering With a Nitrogen-Methanol Atmosphere 810245
Most powder metal part manufacturers use endothermic atmospheres in the sintering of parts. The natural gas crisis resulted in problems for endo users and began a search for alternative atmospheres. This search led to Union Carbide's atmosphere system which is more than an acceptable substitute for endothermic atmospheres. The material presented deals with results of the Union Carbide process, discusses the production increase, and presents economic comparisons with endo.
