The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has released the 2018 edition of its Standard 35, covering materials standards for metal injection molded parts.

This standard provides the design and materials engineer with engineering property data and information to specify materials for components made using the metal injection molding (MIM) process.

Each section of the standard is distinguished by easy-to-read data tables (inch-pound and SI units) and provides information for each material listed, the MPIF says.

The standard was developed by the MIM commercial parts manufacturing industry and includes new data for low alloy steels, MIM-4605 and stainless steels, MIM-17-4 PH (H975), and MIM-17-4 PH (H1025).

This standard does not apply to materials for PM structural parts (SP), PM self-lubricating bearings (SLB), or powder forged (PF) products which are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35.
