The Granulation-Sintering-Deoxygenation Process
The GSD Process, which stands for Granulation-Sintering-Deoxygenation, was developed by world renowned metallurgist, Dr. Zak Fang. It is a thermochemical process for producing spherical alloy powder. It combines low cost feedstock material with high yield production, and thus has the potential to produce spherical Ti and Ti alloy powders at a fraction of the cost of comparable commercial powders that are available today. GSD spherical Ti alloy powder has low oxygen content, controllable particle size distributions, and excellent flowability.
