Metal powder producer Höganäs AB has developed a new powder mix.

According to the company, Intralube GS can improve the green strength of compacted parts up to 80% compared to other powder mixes.

‘We have seen a need for improved green strength of compacted parts,’ said Åsa Ahlin, manager for organic material development. ‘Intralube GS enables green machining, which saves a lot of time and drastically reduces production cost. At the same time, we have been able to keep all other properties at a high level, for instance compressibility and lubrication.’
