The Processing, Properties, and Applications for Aluminum Powder Metallurgy Materials 940428
Aluminum powder metallurgy (P/M) has been the subject of renewed attention recently. This is driven by the need to reduce weight, improve efficiency (such as fuel economy), and reduce costs. A review of the materials available, how they are processed, and how they perform, as compared to wrought and cast forms, will provide a current status in aluminum P/M technology. Some insight will be given into the direction of future technology.
