Binder System for Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Process

During the last decade, process had been made in making debinding faster and more reliable. Solvent debinding is a faster route for debinding in Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) process. It significantly shortens the debinding from days to hours and limits the fromation of defects. however, there is concern about the hazards of organic solvents such as aceton, heptane, carbontetrachloride and ethylene dichloride. These are flammable, toxic and carsinogenic. Hence there has been a considerable motivation to design and develop binders that are water leachable which is safe in practice.
