As a leader in metal injection molding for the last 20 years, we pride ourselves on our material expertise. This guide walks you through typical material properties for MIM low-alloy steels. Low-alloy steels exhibit superior mechanical properties to plain carbon steels due to the addition of alloying elements. MIM low-carbon steels can achieve higher densities and greater mechanical properties over castings. Need help choosing the best option? Let our application experts take a closer look.
