This article describes the sintering behavior of austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic stainless steels. It presents different sintering schedules that are selected by Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). The article provides information on the equipment and atmospheres used for sintering and the steps involved in the process. It discusses the factors that influence the dimensional changes in sintering, namely, powder-related, compaction-related, and sintering-related factors.
