Platinum Group Metals have many useful catalytic properties and are highly resistant to wear and tarnish, making platinum, in particular, well suited for fine jewelry.

Other distinctive properties include resistance to chemical attack, excellent high-temperature characteristics, and stable electrical properties

RF Plasma Powder  

Traditional Platinum Group Metal powders formed by chemical precipitation result in an inconsistent and friable sponge

RF Plasma produces a dense spherical particle with a reduction in trace metals and significantly lower oxygen content  

Platinum
Ruthenium
Rhodium
Iridium

RF Plasma is a "Refractory Free" process where the potential of inclusions from ceramic melt crucibles is eliminated

The Low Turbulence process forms a dense spherical morphology superior to inert gas atomization technologies

RF Plasma produces dense spherical powders ideal for Particle Injection Molding and Additive Manufacturing technologies 

Spherical powders processed by RF Plasma display high flow-ability and a superior Tap Density in these applications
