Do you understand the surface area of your powdered raw material? Do you know that it critically contributes to the quality of your manufacturing process? Surface area provides information about the amount of surface available to interact with binders which can offer a prediction of how the powder will behave which results in improved finished product quality and reduction in biproduct waste.
Listen to Jack Saad, Associate Scientist and Global Technical Training & Support Manager with Micromeritics, when he explores and compares three techniques to determine surface area of common metal powders:
- BET method by gas adsorption
- air permeability method
- calculated method from laser diffraction and density data
