Key Benefits

Through the development of centrifugal atomization technology, Ervin Technologies produces highly spherical metal powders. The Rapid Solidification Rate (RSR) technology enables the production of unique microstructures unattainable through some other atomization methods. The extremely high cooling rates from the RSR technology create fine-grained (nanometre-scale) and amorphous metals with uniform chemistry.

  • High purity
  • Low oxygen content
  • Highly spherical
  • Homogeneous chemistry
  • Particle diameters 1-1200 µm
  • Excellent flow and packing characteristics
