Benefits of Apex lubricant for powdered metals
High density achievable: 7.2 – 7.4 g/cc
  • Elimination of double press / double sinter
  • Improved process capability compared to warm, hot or die wall compaction with the same results and better properties
Elimination / minimization of cracks in green parts at up to 7.4 g/cc
  • Significant improvements in green strength, up to 100%
  • Reduced rejects/scrap

Minimization of ejection problems at up to 7.4 g/cc
  • Minimization of die wear at up to 7.4 g/cc

Creation of near hydrostatic conditions
  • Minimization of gradients in parts
  • Minimization of over compaction
  • Improved resin infiltration
  • Elimination of cracking and blistering with high nickel formulas
  • Near full density copper infiltration

Improved physical properties
  • Fatigue
  • Dimensional stability
  • Strength
  • Hardness

Environmentally friendly
  • No metal stearates
  • Staggered decomposition
  • Improved furnace through put

Predictable lubrication needs, density, and tsi requirements before going into production
  • Streamlines the process of quotation, development and production problem solving
