Powder metal can provide certain functionality that normal cast metal alloys cannot. As you know, increasing clean emissions standards come with increasing challenges to meet them. In order to meet these ever-demanding emission certifications, you may want to consider Powder Metal. With its great macro-scale structural integrity, it can offer superior heat transfer, making it gentler on valves. PM valve seat inserts can handle both thermal stress and impact stress PM VSI can be made with various densities per special needs and cover a wide engine application range. Their solid homogeneous consistency also lends itself to less micro-welding—ultimately improving durability and life extension of both the valve-seat insert and the valve. Have you taken advantage of the benefits of powder metal? Their smooth surface saves time and money because there is less machining involved. It is manufactured very close to final tolerances.
