Used for a broad range of applications where corrosion resistance is important, including automotive, biomedical, and aerospace products.
Nickel Superalloys possess excellent strength, fatigue, creep, and rupture strength up to 1300°F (704°C) for applications such as aircraft engines and gas turbines.
Aluminum-based metal powder is widely used in aerospace parts, automotive parts, profile surface spraying, and powder metallurgy.
Titanium alloys are excellent for structural applications where high strength and light weight is important, including Aircraft structures and medical implants.
Cobalt alloys are used for strength and corrosion resistance in a variety of applications ranging from wear resistance, medical and dental implants to aircraft engines.
Tool steel is ideal for applications that require exceptional durability and heat resistance, such as cutting tool production and hot-work tooling.
There's no reason ordering metal powders should be complicated. That's why we've created a unique e-commerce business model that gets consumers immediate quoting, as well as shipping of their products within days.
We serve additive manufacturing, metal injection molding, metal spray coating, and other industries that depend on powder. Order your first shipment today and take advantage of the supply model you can rely on.
Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is a process by which a digital design is turned into a physical part layer by layer. This is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing processes, where a final design is cut from a larger block of material.
Metal Injection Molding
Metal injection molding (MIM) is a metalworking process in which finely-powdered metal is mixed with binder material to create a "feedstock" that is then shaped and solidified using injection molding. The molding process allows high volume, complex parts to be shaped in a single step.
Metal Spray Coating
Metal spraying is primarily used to produce coatings on structural materials. Such coatings provide protection against high temperatures, corrosion, erosion and wear.

KBM Advanced Materials, LLC (“KBM”) is a newly established company formed to finance, sell, and distribute metal powders to the additive manufacturing, MIM, and other advanced manufacturing markets.
KBM bridges the inventory gap between smaller lot customers and larger metal powder producers. Producers can schedule their production equipment to larger regular blanket orders from KBM. Customers can book jobs, plan R&D and operate their businesses knowing that KBM has in stock their raw material and it is only a day or two away.
Frequently Asked Questions.
What are the advantages of powdered metal over traditional metal manufacturing?
Powder metallurgy boasts many benefits over traditional manufacturing. It has reduced lead times and is more cost-effective since there’s no scrap metal waste. Higher accuracy and easy customization are some other advantages of using powdered metal.
Is powder metal stronger than wrought parts?
The strength of powdered and wrought metal depends on many factors, including composition and manufacturing process. But the ability to create complex shapes with powdered metal may afford higher strength in some cases.
Which industries use powder?
Powdered metal’s versatility makes it a popular choice for many industries, including aerospace, automotive, medicine, and power plants.
