Iron powder is produced in many different grades for varieties of applications.
High purity fine iron powders are used to manufacture sintered components, soft magnetic components, brazing, iron fortification, friction products, printing, surface coating, welding, chemistry and polymer filtrations.
Iron powder products are classified by purity, production method, grain and density. Following are some of the most widely used iron powder products.

HD: High Density HP: High Purity HS: High Specific Surface
LD: Low Density LP: Low Purity LS: Low Specific Surface
IRON100 is a high green strength reduced iron powder specifically manufactured for low to medium density P/M applications, resin casting, and rough magnetic paints. (Mesh 100)
IRON325 is a super fine high green strength reduced iron powder specifically manufactured for low to medium density P/M applications, resin casting, and smooth magnetic paints and printing inks. (Mesh 325)
FE100.29 is a high purity water atomized iron powder with irregularly shaped and high density particles. The high compressibility of FE100.29 makes it a perfect choice for manufacturing pure iron or iron alloy parts with high tensile strength as well as high compressive strength. FE100.29 is mainly used in powder metallurgy for production of high strength machine parts. (Mesh 100)
S100 is black iron/ steel powder used in fire works, concrete (to increase weight and create rust effects), soil additive, chemical reactions (production of iron sulfate, iron chloride, ..), electromagnetism (as iron filings). (Mesh 100)
S70 is black iron/ steel powder used in fire works, concrete (to increase weight and create rust effects), soil additive, chemical reactions (production of iron sulfate, iron chloride, ..), electromagnetism (as iron filings). (Mesh 70) (Note: S70 is more coarse than S100)
S1001 is a highly compressible, water-atomized steel powder specifically designed for high density, high strength powder metallurgy and powder forging applications. In addition to the powder metallurgy, S1001 is used in production of brazing pastes, metal clays, magnetic paints, and resin casting.
IRON12 is a coarse spongy iron powder made of high purity iron ore. IRON12 is used for friction applications as well as chemical and filtration applications.
SM1001 is a high purity soft iron powder for making soft magnetic components using P/M method or resin casting method. SM1001 is highly compressible, water-atomized powder specifically designed for high density, high strength soft magnetic P/M components.
CIRON is cast iron powder with about 95% iron content. This product does contain about 5% carbon and may have some rust effect. The color of the cast iron powder may vary from brown to black.
CIPMS is high purity (99.5%) iron microspheres known as Carbonyl Iron Powder or Zero Valent Iron powder. Particles are microspheres in the range of 3 to 10 microns.
FE3O4M1 is a very fine synthetic magnetite or magnetic iron oxide with particles in the range of 5 to 6 microns..
GRPM5 is a very fine, multi-purpose graphite powder used in powder metallurgy, metal clays, paints and coatings, lubricants, fingerprinting dust, mold release agent, batteries, plastic reinforcement, fire retardants, pencils, molds, and many other applications.
Our iron powders are mostly distributed by national or international distributors of metals and chemicals including ChemicalStore.com. Please contact 973-405-6248 to discuss your specific requirements based on your applications.
