Spherical refractory metal as well as other specialty alloys powders 

Based on its core competencies in powder production processes, Blacksand developed a melt-less process to produce spherical refractory alloy metal powders for use in additive manufacturing and other advanced manufacturing. The same basic process can be used for a variety of special alloys for special applications. Key features of this process are:


  • Low Cost

  • Melt-less

  • Flexible in composition and feed materials

  • Rapid alloy synthesis

  • Flexible batch size 

This process has been utilized to produce spherical Mo, W, Nb, Zr and their alloys including high entropy alloys. 

3D printing delivers highly value added titanium and refractory metal alloys products.
