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.
