JFE Iron Powder
As a total iron powder maker, JFE Steel Corporation is the only company in Japan which produces and sells both reduced iron powder and atomized iron powder. The former is produced by reducing mill scale (iron oxide), and the latter, by atomizing molten steel with water. In addition to reduced iron powders, atomized iron powders, and alloyed steel powders, JFE also produces Clean Mix powders by applying a segregation-free treatment to these materials.
JFE's iron powder products are used in a wide range of applications, beginning with powder metallurgy, where they are the main material for sintered machine parts for automobiles, electric appliances, and other types of machinery. They are also used as the main material for magnetic materials, the heating component in disposable body warmers, toner carriers for copying machines, and in numerous other applications, and have earned a high reputation in all these fields.
