Powdermet, Inc., located in Euclid, Ohio, is a world leader in the production of nanoengineered metallic composites.
We are committed to maturing and transitioning clean, sustainable, energy and life-saving advanced materials solutions to the marketplace.
Powdermet develops, matures and transitions breakthrough materials innovations that enable reduced weight, reduced resource consumption, reduced environmental footprint, reduced life-cycle costs and increase energy efficiency based on value creation gained through engineered nano-scale features and hierarchically structures of metal and/or ceramic phases in a structure.
Some of the company’s unique products include:
•SComP™ – a family of structural syntactic metal-composites with superior strength to weight ratios, better formability, and lower cost compared to honeycomb and integrally stiffened panel alternatives.
•MComP™ – (Micro/Nano Composite) hierarchically structured metals offer very high strength-to-weight ratios in magnesium and aluminum alloys.
•EnComP™ – Energetic composites are a class of materials that engineer the storage and release of energy.
•SynFoam™ – Powdermet’s family of structural syntactic ceramic composites combining strength, high temperature functionality and low thermal conductivity into one multifunctional material
Powdermet is a nationally recognized nanotechnology and advanced materials research and development organization. This 20+ person firm was founded by Andrew Sherman, who started Powdermet as a spin-out of Ultramet, Inc., in 1996. Powdermet develops, matures, and transitions breakthrough materials innovations that enable reduced weight, resource consumption, environmental footprint and life-cycle costs, while increasing energy-efficiency based on value-creation gained through engineered nano-scale features and hierarchically structures of metal and/or ceramic phases in a structure. Powdermet has an extensive proprietary technology base and application data in materials compositions, structures, and manufacturing processes incorporating nano-scale and submicron features into engineering materials through powder metallurgy and ceramic processing techniques.
