Gains & Losses

Infiltrants

When you use Ultra Infiltrant you not only gain, you lose:

  • Lose the need to inventory bulky infiltrant powder
  • Lose the development and maintenance costs associated with infiltrant tooling
  • Lose the tremendous cost associated with compacting presses to produce the infiltrant slugs
  • Lose the labor and overhead costs related to producing the infiltrant slugs
  • Lose the additional lubricant that can contaminate the sintering furnace

So what do you gain?

  • Easy to handle - no breakage problems means no waste
  • Improved productivity - faster assembly of the infiltrant with the green compact
  • Easy to automate placement of the infiltrant - strong, regular shape
  • No waste or infiltrant scrap - lower production costs
  • Precise infiltrant weight control - uniform, consistently infiltrated product
  • Consistent response in sintering - no segregated powder ingredients
  • Higher infiltrant efficiency - no lubricant loss, no residue
  • Uniform copper distribution in the final part - consistent size, strength, hardness
  • Final part ready to use - no residue, no erosion
