Yuelong Superfine Metal Powders names PMCtec as European distributor

March 21, 2012

Yuelong Superfine Metal Powders (YSM), a leading Chinese producer of carbonyl iron (CIP) and stainless steel powders, has appointed PMCtec GmbH (PMCtec) as their distributor for Europe.

PMCtec (Precision Material Chemicals & Technology) was founded in 1999 by Wolfgang Rau as a trading house. PMCtec is now part of a group of companies trading, producing and refining metal powders, ferrous as well as non-ferrous.

PMCtec offers customised metal powders, metal powder blends and additives for different areas of Powder Metallurgy such as structural parts, MIM, bearings, friction, welding, thermal spraying and many other industries and processes. PMCtec’s Thale plant runs a state of the art laboratory.

The cooperation between YSM and PMCtec extends PMCtec’s range of metal powders into the area of fine and superfine metal powders for MIM and PM applications. YSM’s selection was greatly influenced by PMCtec’s market-access in Europe as well as it’s knowhow in PM, it’s technical capabilties and support as well as warehousing availability at different locations in Germany.

YSM was founded in 2001, initially as a producer of carbonyl iron powders (CIP) and during the past eight years has become one of the major global producers of CIP. At the same time, YSM has expanded its product range to include a series of stainless steel and high alloy metal powders for use in both MIM and conventional Powder Metallurgy (PM) applications.
