The MPIF has released its 2020 edition of its Standard 35 entitled Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts. 

According to the association, the standard now includes new data on FLC2-4208 sinter-hardened steel and FC-0205-42 & FC-0208-53 iron-copper and copper steel, as well as new engineering information about aluminum axial fatigue and thermal conductivity.

This standard 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, the MPIF said.

According to the association, the standard is suitable for design and materials engineers and covers the latest engineering property data and information available to specify materials for structural parts made using the PM process. Each section of the standard is clearly distinguished by easy-to-read data tables (Inch-Pound and SI units) and provides explanatory information for each material listed.
