Atomised magnesium powders
Almamet is at the forefront of magnesium powder technology through new atomised powder projects and improving existing cutting and milling technology of magnesium powders. This allows for powders of various morphology and size to be blended into customer-designed munitions.
Military-standard magnesium powders
Almamet can supply magnesium powders in conformance to all known national standards; namely MIL-382C: MIL-P 14067B(MU): DEF STAN 13/130 .
