DAPTM-AM HTC Advanced High Performance Powders

This family of high hardness advanced additive powders offers groundbreaking performance and versatility not found in other materials.

These powders have been painstakingly produced and engineered to excel in high wear and high stress applications, as well ones that require high thermal conductivity and optimized conformal cooling.

The applications include die cast dies/molds, plastic molds, tools, dies, fixtures, gages, engineered tools, and so much more.



DAPTM-AM HTC40 is an advanced High Thermal Conductivity true tool steel additive powder capable of a maximum hardness of 45 HRC.
DAPTM-AM HTC40 has been engineered for higher strength, high consistency, and repeatability. It's easily printable and has equal to or superior physical properties to similar conventional materials.
DAPTM-AM HTC40 is an innovative tooling grade that has been painstakingly developed for Die Cast & Injection Mold components, fixtures, wear components, and other tooling related applications.
When printed correctly DAPTM-AM HTC40 has vastly superior thermal conductivity compared to maraging steel and is less prone to cracking than regular H13 additive powder.
Key aspects of DAPTM-AM HTC40 are:
-Superior Thermal Conductivity
-Excellent Toughness At Hardness
-Ease of Printing
-Simple Cost & Time Effective Heat Treatment
