Powdered Metal Grades:
PM 3 – PM 9 – PM 10 (A-11) – PM 15 – M4
PM 3 Powdered Metal
PM 9 Powdered Metal
PM 10 (A.K.A. A-11, CPM 10V) Powdered Metal
PM 10 (CPM 10V/A11) is a powered metal known for its extremely high impact toughness and wear resistance. The high impact toughness is due to the fine grain size, and the cleanliness of powdered metallurgy. A11 and CPM 10V are often used interchangeably.
PM 15 Powdered Metal
PM T15 is a cobalt-bearing high-speed steel. Due to the cobalt content, the material provides high wear resistance. Like most high-speed steels, the vanadium carbides offer high wear resistance due to fine grain sides, cleanliness of powdered metallurgy and small carbides.
PM M4 Powdered Metal
PM M4 is a high-speed steel known primarily for its versatility, toughness and its transverse bend strength. PM M4 also offers improved cutting life and durability and often replaces similar high-speed steel such as M2 and regular M4.
