JAS Additive Alloys
Market Leader in Small-Batch Production

Consistency You Can Count On

Engineered specifically for Additive Manufacturing, JAS additive alloys provide consistent flowability and high packing density.  We’re ready to deliver small lots for prototyping and testing or tens of thousands of pounds each month for scaled manufacturing or re-sale.  Either way,
JAS delivers on time, every time.

Additive Manufacturing Alloys

JAS has been designing alloys for additive manufacturing since 2013.  That experience has taught us a few things, for example, AM is not the same as Thermal Spray.  Additive powders must be pure, fully dense, highly spherical and have consistent morphology.  Most users have experienced the frustration that comes from meticulously employing a printing parameter only to generate parts with inconsistent characteristics.

Our answer: Check the powder, even the slightest deviation will skew results significantly. At JAS, we never deviate from spec, even with the narrowest chemistry and sizing constraints.

With JAS, you’ll get AM Powders you can count on for consistent results

  • Superior Morphology
  • High Purity
  • Exacting Chemical Composition
  • Optimized Density
  • Consistent Deposition
  • Remarkable Packing Density

JAS Coated Alloy Particles For AM

The primary purpose of a  coated particle is to maintain  the integrity of each material’s  properties while remaining  homogenously dispersed

Constructed through a patented process of coating a base particle with other elements, JAS Layered Alloys are designed to specifically address challenges unique to the Additive Manufacturing process.

JAS Coated Alloys exhibit exceptional mechanical properties 

  • 25% higher tensile strength at 800°C
  • Reduction in alloy vaporization
  • Controlled galvanic reaction
  • Reduction in oxidization

Base Particle Materials:

  • Metal
  • Ceramic
  • Diamond
  • Polymer

Outer Layers Protect Base Particle from:

  • Vaporization
  • Corrosion
  • Galvanization

Magnesium (Mg) for example, has both low melting and boiling points and high vapor pressure creating an impossible challenge for Additive Manufacturing.  Alloys like Al12Mg17 and Al6061, which posses incredible corrosion resistant properties, have been disregarded by the AM industry.  By coating Mg with layers of high melting point nanoparticles (such as Si and W) however, we can change how the alloy reacts to various AM processes. Partial melting of surface particles produces radiation heat that will melt Mg.   Rapid cooling produces a finished part with a fine uniform microstructure.
