Standard 35,
Materials Standards
for PM Structural Parts—
2012 Edition

Newly Revised and Expanded

Standard 35, Materials Standards for PM Structural Parts—2012 Edition, the most recent version of the standard, has been revised and expanded. Developed by the powder metallurgy (PM) commercial parts manufacturing industry, each section of the standard is clearly distinguished by easy-to-read data tables and explanatory information for each material listed. Detailed explanatory notes and definitions, along with data cited in both Inch–Pound and SI units, help to make the standard more “user friendly.”

This standard provides the design and materials engineer with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials for structural parts made by the PM process. Make sure that your quality assurance/laboratory staff and your sales and marketing personnel/representatives have the latest edition of this standard. Order enough for your own company use and for free distribution to your existing and potential customers. Keep a supply handy for future trade shows, plant visits, etc.

Please note that publication of the 2012 Edition of this standard renders the 2009 Edition (and prior editions) obsolete. Previous editions should no longer be distributed but destroyed.

The 2012 Edition contains:

• NEW Materials & Mechanical Property Data

PM and MIM: Touching Your Life
A DVD showcasing the capabilities of metal injection molding (MIM)

PM and MIM: Touching Your Life, a new video showcasing the capabilities of metal injection molding (MIM) as one of the fabrication technologies known collectively as powder metallurgy (PM), is available for purchase in DVD format.

The 15-minute program, aimed at potential end users who may not be familiar with PM and MIM, is built on the theme, "Every day, in some way, PM and MIM touch your life." It is divided into two distinct parts: Part One introduces the viewer to powder metallurgy in general using dozens of examples of actual components to illustrate the part-forming technologies’ benefits, with particular emphasis on their contributions to the concept of sustainability; Part Two deals specifically with the metal injection molding process, providing design engineers with all the facts needed to understand why, if they’re designing an intricate metal part, they should think of MIM from the start.

MIM fabricators should find the video an indispensable tool with which to equip their sales and marketing personnel. It is an ideal vehicle to use as a seminar introductory piece. What’s more, companies involved in any aspect of PM and MIM can use it to orient all employees, as it quickly stimulates an appreciation of the value they bring to customers’ products. For complete flexibility of use, Parts One and Two can be accessed independently with a simple click from the opening menu. The new program was produced by MPIF with funding provided by the Metal Injection Molding Association.
