Catamold® – Best in class feedstock for automotive applications 

Nowadays the average car consists of more than 20,000 parts. And a great many of them are manufactured by metal injection molding. ​

Discover the amazing possibilities of powder injection molding for the production of metal automotive components: with Catamold® and BASF. ​

Catamold® enables the near-net-shape manufacturing of components even ones with complex geometries in metal – in large production quantities. As in the case of thermoplastics, many options are available right from the first processing step, injection molding: undercuts, cross holes, blind holes, grooves and threads as well as surface structures and lettering. Therefore Catamold® is the economic alternative to traditional technologies, e.g. investment casting.​
