Chemical & Metallurgical

Powders for chemical and metallurgical processes

Hoganas wide range of iron powders is used in several chemical and metallurgical processes from the production of aluminum foil to magnetic paints. Our products also play a role in the recycling of industrial chemicals and are utilized in steel and pharmaceutical industries.

Iron powder is the best choice or even the only alternative in many applications that require specific properties and consistency. The high surface area and/or purity of iron powder offer more cost-effective solutions and increased productivity compared to alternative methods.

Application examples 

  • Addition to refractories or concrete
  • Reduction and catalytic agent in organic/inorganic processes
  • Diamond tools
  • Hot bags
  • Oxygen absorbers
  • Raw material in production of organic/inorganic salts
  • Pigments
  • Alloying element
  • Magnetic crack detection
  • Melting stock in steel making

Our powders can also be used as additions to polymers to provide magnetic properties as well as to increase weight, heat conductivity or sound-absorption. There are many other application areas wherein iron powders are used.
