Handbook of Non-Ferrous Metal Powders: Technologies and Applications, Second Edition, provides information on the manufacture and use of powders of non-ferrous metals that has taken place for many years in the area previously known as Soviet Russia. It presents the huge amount of knowledge and experience that has built up over the last fifty years. Originally published in Russia by several prominent scientists, researchers and engineers, this presents an update to the first book that includes sections on classification, properties, treatment methods and production. This updated edition contains new content on the powders, along with newer methods of 3D printing.

Key Features

  • Covers the manufacturing methods, properties and importance of the following metals: aluminum, titanium, magnesium, copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc, cadmium, noble metals, rare earth metals, lead, tin and bismuth
  • Includes new content on recent advances, such as additive manufacturing and 3D printing of non-ferrous metal alloys and specific powders for advanced techniques, including metal injection molding technologies
  • Expands on topics such as safety engineering in the production of powders and advanced areas of engineering research, such as nanopowder processes


Metallurgists, engineers, research scientists in powder metallurgy technology, metal powder manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, and end-users of metal powders
