Ancorsteel 1000 is the workhorse of the Ancorsteel series. It has low levels of carbon and oxygen and good compressibility. In the powder production process used to make Ancorsteel, molten steel is atomized into irregular, homogeneous particles that are then annealed to produce uniform, dependable steel powders. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, and compressive strength. It also includes information on powder metal forms. Filing Code: CS-152.
