Improve measuring techniques of metal powders used in 3D printing.

About the Program

Use ASTM International standards to measure metal powder properties related to their physical properties. Those in the powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, and other relevant industries will benefit from this new program supported by ASTM Committees B09 on Metal Powders and Metal Powder Products and F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies.

Samples and Testing

Conducted twice a year, this program provides a different commercial sample for each test cycle. Participating testing labs and R&D facilities will receive samples from metal powder manufacturers to measure and analyze apparent density, flow rate, particle size, and other properties.
