This article briefly reviews the subject of copper-base powder-metallurgy (P/M) products in terms of powder production methods (atomization, oxide reduction, electrolysis, and hydrometallurgy) and the product properties/consolidation practices of the major applications. Of the four major methods for making copper and copper alloy powders, atomization and oxide reduction are presently practiced on a large scale in North America. The article provides information on the mechanism, production, properties, composition and applications of different types of copper-base P/M products, including self-lubricating sintered bearings, structural parts, oxide-dispersion-strengthened copper, sintered metal friction materials, and porous filters.
