Nickel or copper coated graphite powder


I am a student in graduate school. I study modeling of melted Al. I need Ni-coated graphite powder or Cu-coated graphite powder. The size of powder is 10-200 micrometer, but size must be constant. If you have information or powder, I wish you'd send mail. Please .... I need powder .... not products. Have a nice day.

The best source of this type of powder that I know of is probably the Acheson Colloids [Port Huron, MI] Electrodag range.

There are two companies that I know of that coat nickel on graphite powders: Novamet Specialty Products [Wyckoff, New Jersey] and Westaim Specialty Products Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Hope this helps.

As you are a graduate student, I want you to know that nickel and copper coated graphite powder is a product. You need to specify what you mean by "constant" size. For instance, an average diameter, with a standard deviation?

It is a very specialized product, the production of which has already taken up thousands of man-years of effort, and as new uses are discovered for it, thousands more.
