Description

Optimized for Processing in Laser Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB)


MetcoAdd™ HX-D is a nickel-based solid solution strengthened powder product with chemistry similar to AMS 5536, EN 2.4665 and UNS N06002. This material has been optimized to mitigate cracking when processing with laser powder bed fusion. 


Room temperature static properties of PBF-LB processed and heat treated material coupons have been shown to be comparable to those of AMS 5536 plate and well in excess of AMS 5390 cast material. Elevated temperature tensile and creep rupture data may be made available upon request. 


For reference purposes Oerlikon has processed MetcoAdd HX-D using 40 μm layer thickness to provide data below. Properties may be optimized based on application specific requirements.
