The 2018 edition of the MPIF’s Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts, has been released. The new standard has been designed to provide design and materials engineers with the latest engineering property data and information available to specify materials for structural parts made using the PM process.

Standard 35 was developed by the powder metallurgy commercial parts manufacturing industry and It has been revised and expanded to include new data for AC-2014-T8 aluminum alloy as well as four heat-treated prealloyed steels: FL-3905, FL-4005, FL-4805 and FL-4905. New or revised engineering information include hardenability (jominy), strain-controlled fatigue and CTE data and steam oxidation of ferrous PM materials.

It does not apply to materials for PM self-lubricating bearings (SLB), powder forged (PF) or metal injection molded (MIM) products which are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35.
