New MPIF Standard 35 for Metal Injection Moulding

September 25, 2018

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has released its new Standard 35–MIM – Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts. The standard aims to provide design and materials engineers with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials for components made using Metal Injection Moulding.

The standard was developed by the MIM commercial parts manufacturing industry and includes new data for low alloy steels, MIM-4605 (HIPed quenched and tempered) and stainless steels, MIM 17-4 PH (H975) and MIM-17-4 PH (H1025).

Standard 35-MIM does not apply to materials for Powder Metallurgy structural parts, PM self-lubricating bearings, or powder forged products; these are covered in separate editions of MPIF Standard 35.

The new standard is available to purchase via the MPIF’s publication portal.
