Why, after 40 years of R&D, the market of PM Ti is next to nothing?

Issues plaguing conventional Powder metallurgy of Ti are;

  • Not achieving desired properties and microstructure¬†
  • Powder is too expensive

We have demonstrated ability to address these issues by producing powders at a lower cost and using near net shape manufacturing process followed by our proprietary post heat treatment to obtain desired microstructure and properties of titanium alloys

Benefits demonstrated by Blacksand

  • Lower Powder cost¬†
    • 30% of conventional powder cost
  • Lower cost to produce near net shape
    • 80% material savings
    • Lower energy cost and environmentally safe
  • Desired microstructure and mechanical properties
