Testing of PM titanium plate

Lockheed Martin has agreed to evaluate the material quality and mechanical performance of plate made using IperionX’s titanium angular powder.

The plates will be finished using the company’s hydrogen sintering and phase transformation (HSPT) technology, which IperionX says can deliver strength and fatigue properties comparable to wrought titanium alloys.

“These patented technologies can either use titanium minerals or titanium scrap metal as feedstock to manufacture high quality titanium products at significantly lower cost and carbon footprint than existing production processes,” said Anastasios Arima, IperionX CEO.
