Copper and Copper alloy powder is copper and copper alloy in crushed and granular form. The powder is prepared using various processes. One of the prominent processes involves spraying of molten copper and copper allot under very high pressure. Doing so yields fine granular powder. Using the method, copper & copper alloy powders can be obtained in 1- dimensional, 2- dimensional, and 3-dimensional form. These shapes depend on the atomizing gas used to blow the molten copper and copper alloy from a nozzle tip. Hydrometallurgy and electrolysis are some other conversion process.

Copper and copper alloy powder possesses thermal and electrical conductivity. Thus, it is widely used in the production of electronics and electrical components

Copper & Copper Alloy Powder Market: Overview

Copper & copper alloy powder is a fine granular and crushed copper or copper alloy powder. Several processes are used to make this powder. One of the prominent methods entails molten copper/copper alloy sprayed under very high pressure to yield a fine granular powder. Several types of copper & copper alloy powders – 1-dimensional (ultrathin rods & needles), 2-dimesional (flake & dendritic), and three dimensional (spherical & nodular) – can be manufactured depending on the type of atomizing gas used to ‘blow’ the molten copper/copper alloy from a nozzle tip. Electrolysis and hydrometallurgy is another way of producing copper & copper alloy powder. These methods produce different types of powders. Copper & copper alloy powders can be manufactured in various particle sizes, ranging from 5 microns to more than 1000 microns, and shapes. Copper powder of purity more than 99% is available commercially. Components fashioned from these powders usually tend to have electrical conductivities of 85% to 95% IACS as either pressed or sintered. In some cases, higher conductivities, up to 100% IACS, can also be achieved by further densification. High electrical conductivity translates into high thermal conductivity. Thus, copper powder metallurgy parts offer substantial benefits in the production of electronic & electrical components, where electrical or thermal conductivity is a vital characteristic.

Copper & Copper Alloy Powder Market: Drivers & Restraines

Copper & copper alloy powder is used in various applications. Copper base powders are used in applications such as abrasive wheels, fungicides, brake linings, dead & counter weights, paints, bushing, catalysts, heat sinks, bearings, brazing compounds, fuse parts, lubricants, and printed circuits. Copper & copper alloy powder is employed in various component manufacturing, wherein several powder metallurgy techniques are employed. Furthermore, the use of copper & copper alloy powder as biocide in marine paints is common. Thus, versatility of powdered copper & copper alloy is one of the major drivers of the market. The market for copper & copper alloy powder is driven by factors such as rise in demand in the electrical & electronics industry and industrial machinery manufacturing. It is also a preferred metal powder in rapid prototyping and powder metallurgy.
