Ancorsteel 4300 high strength alloy ferrous powder, engineered for high-performance applications, is the first in a line of binder-treated products simulating wrought steel compositions that can be processed at conventional sintering temperatures. The new alloy system was engineered specifically to counteract the common oxygen-related problems normally associated with the presence of chromium. Low sintered oxygen levels (500 ppm) are achieved in this Cr-bearing alloy when processed at 1120 C (2050 F). The graphite level can be tailored to the demands of the specific application. Other advantages include good compressibility and exceptional dimensional stability with respect to graphite content, compaction pressure and sintering conditions.
