NanoSteel Releases New Powders for Binder Jet 3D Printing

The materials are suited for use in highly abrasive environments.

NanoSteel, a nano-structured steel materials design company, has launched its first powders designed for binder jet 3D printing. These materials, according to the company, enable printing of components for highly abrasive environments.

BLDRmetal J-10 and BLDRmetal J-11, according to the company, offer higher durability and include a combination of complex metallic phases for wear resistance as well as ductility.NanoSteel

These materials are intended for applications in areas such as oil & gas, tool & die. Their properties make them ideal for 3D printing since they benefit from its ability to eliminate tooling, create advanced geometries and build custom parts on demand.Binder 3D Printing

“These first BLDRmetal powders offer compelling alternatives to existing materials for the binder jet printing process,” said Harald Lemke, General Manager and Vice President of Engineered Powders at NanoSteel. “The company’s entry into the market enhances the applicability of binder jet printing by enabling the additive manufacturing of high-complexity, lower-cost components with exceptional wear performance.”
