ARC-3 (F-0008) Remill

ARC-3 remill is an iron based mix meeting MPIF F-0008 chemistry requirements and produced mainly from recycled green powder metal compacts. ARC-3 is a prèss ready mix containing 0.75% lubricant. It is commonly used to produce net-shape lawn and garden, light industrial and household goods. ARC-3 may be machined, but some applications may not machine as well as new powder mixes. Additions of MnS are common for applications requiring machining.
