CarTech Puris 5+ titanium powder is a custom composition of Ti-6Al-4V that meets all the specifications of Grade 5 while maintaining high strength with low oxygen content. This proprietary, new titanium powder formulation is specifically designed to meet the demands of Additive Manufacturing.
Typically additive manufacturers seek to balance the oxygen levels needed to obtain the desired strength properties with the increases in oxygen levels inherent in some additive-manufacturing processes. This creates a challenge in laser melt or e-beam direct melt 3D printing, as both processes experience increases in oxygen content with each recycle of excess powder from the build box. By starting with Puris 5+ titanium powder, customers can manage this balance of oxygen and strength better throughout the life cycle of the titanium powder. Powder is screened, under argon cover if desired, to customer requirements.
CarTech Puris 5+ powder is:
• Chemically pure
• Contamination free
• High packing density
CarTech Puris powders offer several important characteristics:
• High chemistry control and low oxygen: Plasma arc melting (PAM) utilized to produce extra-low interstitial (ELI) grades of any titanium alloy at any mesh size, including Grade 5 and Grade 23 chemistries.
For example, the low initial oxygen content of a -325 mesh Ti-6Al-4V ELI powder (Grade 23) allows for an increase in the number of recycles before exceeding specification maximum allowable levels.
• Traceability: ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certified procedures ensure CPP can trace the exact raw material and heat lot from which powder originates.
