SUSTAINABLE POWDER Technologies group

The Sustainable Powder Technologies group, works on the development of materials through technologies based on the powder route, taking advantage of using efficiently the raw materials, the extreme microstructural optimization and the possibility of obtaining materials that are difficult or impossible to obtain by alternative methods. The group has experience in many families of alloys (such as light alloys, superalloys, steels, high entropy alloys) and powder base technolies (press and sinter, field assisted sintering, hot isostatic pressing, metal injection moulding, additive technologies –laser and binder based-).
