Osprey® Fe29Ni17Co is an expansion alloy with a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to borosilicate glass. Osprey® Fe29Ni17Co is an alloy of the same type as Kovar®.

The powder for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) has material properties that achieve typical values and exceed minimum values, according to MPIF Standard 35.

Osprey® metal powder is manufactured by Inert Gas Atomization (IGA), producing a powder with a spherical morphology which provides good flow characteristics and high packing density. In addition, the powder has a low oxygen content and low impurity levels, resulting in a metallurgically clean product with enhanced mechanical performance.
