ASM International has published a new book, Binder and Polymer Assisted Powder Processing, co-authored by Randall M German and Animesh Bose.

The 273-page book focuses on the basic principles and options available for the application of polymers and natural organics to powder processing. It links materials, powder characteristics, forming processes and product attributes together to give what the authors believe to be the first unified treatment on polymer-assisted powder processing.

The processes discussed include injection moulding, sinter-based Additive Manufacturing, uniaxial die compaction, tape casting, extrusion, slip casting and slurry casting. In each process, the technical requirements are outlined and polymer candidates are identified.

ASM International explains that the book bridges the practical aspects of cost, availability and safety with fundamental structure, properties, processing and tests. Each chapter concludes with a review of current industrial standards and examples of practices.

The book covers the following topics as dedicated chapters:

  • Engineering powders
  • Binder constituents
  • Binder formulation
  • Powder-binder feedstock mixing and testing
  • Shaping processes
  • Binder removal
  • Sintering densification
  • Component mechanical properties
  • Case studies of powder-binding processing practices
  • Opportunities for powder-binder forming technologies

The book is available to purchase via the company’s website.
