Guide to PM Microstructures
The Guide to Powder Metallurgy Microstructures is a reference for education for comparison purposes to aid the end-user community in the interpretation of PM microstructures.
Build an appreciation of:
- engineering new components
- designing new materials
- solving various types of quality problems.
This website provides examples of typical microstructures developed during common sintering practices.
Site users are able to reference materials processed by conventional sintering; elevated temperature sintering; accelerated cooling rates; etc. to determine phase and structures of the materials. Specimen preparation and proper selection of etchants is also covered.
