LPW Technology and Metalysis are collaborating to develop an alternative supply chain for clean, spherical tantalum and tungsten powders for quality-critical applications. The partnership combines Metalysis’ metal production technology, which produces metal powder directly from oxide using electrolysis, with LPW’s spherodisation and postprocessing capability to size and blend high-quality, free-flowing powders directly from the raw material and alloys. LPW will also be responsible for selling the optimized powder.
