When selecting the best metal material for an application, consideration is given to requirements such as strength, ductility, thermal conductivity and wear resistance. Rather than just matching traditional material types, GKN Powder Metallurgy's process capabilities excel them. Powder metal allows for unique material combinations that cannot be produced with a traditional iron melting furnace process.
