Special Alloys

Valimet’s Special Alloys Group is comprised of two atomizing systems that produce spherical, custom alloy powders designed for unique applications. Production quantities from 100 pounds to 100 tons are possible for alloys with melting temperatures up to 2200 F. Valimet can alter atomizing conditions to achieve a desired cooling rate, particle size distribution or characteristic. The Pilot Plant is also used to test process improvements and innovative equipment designs. Once these technologies are proven successful, they are integrated into our main production systems.

Typical aluminum alloys include AA 2000, 5000, 6000, 7000 and 8000 series high purity aluminum (99.9%+), as well as proprietary alloys. The data sheet attached below lists Valimet’s common alloying elements with their corresponding maximum allowable weight percentages, although other elements are possible. The typical particle size distributions range from 5 to 200 microns and may be classified to precise sizing parameters.
