Nickel-manganese powder for diamond synthesis

Use

Fast-quenched powder of the nickel-manganese alloy AP-MnNi40 in flake form is widely used in producing synthesized diamonds of various sizes.

The powder is used as a catalyst in a reaction mixture with pure graphite.

Key technological advantages of the catalyst:

  • high homogeneity of the reaction mixture with dispersive graphite;
  • the ability to vary the packed density of the reaction mixture;
  • the structure's high homogeneity and grain fineness;
  • minimal content of impurities in the alloy;
  • good plasticity and shapability ensure a wide field of contact between the catalyst and the graphite;
  • the catalyst boosts the level of graphite transmutation and the hardness and sizes of the diamonds.
