MIM Materials Standard Released

April 23, 2009—An addendum to the 2007 edition of MPIF Standard 35, "Materials Standards for Metal Injection Molded Parts," has been released. Low-Alloy Steel standard includes a new MIM standardized material designation code, information, property data, chemical composition and data tables (both inch-pound and SI units) for the MIM-4140 quenched-and-tempered material.

The standard is posted on the MPIF website, at http://www.mpif.org/Pubs/35_addenda.asp?linkid=81, as a free-access document until it is included in the next printed edition of the standard publication. The pdf may be copied and sent to design engineers and others who specify MIM parts.
