OptiPowder Metal Powders

Continuum OptiPowderTM metal powders accelerate the circular metals economy to carbon neutrality, delivering the most sustainable premium gas-atomized powder for demanding industry requirements.  

Continuum’s Sustainable OptiPowders

Continuum’s OptiPowders are produced by Greyhound M2P gas atomization platform, the world’s most sustainable, reliable and deployable metal atomizer.

Our OptiPowder metal powders are produced with green power and made from sustainable metal sources, such as machine turnings and metal by-products, because this is the fastest and most efficient way to reduce the overall carbon footprint for metals.

We have experience with a wide range of standard and custom alloy metal powders to fit your needs.

Let's talk.

Our powders meet all demanding performance criteria as conventionally manufactured gas-atomized powders.

We are certified as an ISO9001 and SAE AS9100 compliant manufacturer. Our Quality Management System, which governs our internal systems for purchasing, training, manufacturing, order fulfillment and risk management have been audited and meet the standards’ requirements.

AS9100 is an Aerospace-specific version of ISO9001 and includes additional requirements for FOD (Foreign Object Debris) prevention key to metal production for flight-ready parts.

Over 40 years of plant biologic research.

Years of plant biologic research has been sitting in labs, unable to become commercialized because of the unsurmountable challenges around both production and precision when using plants as bioreactors.

By using the Zea Lighthouse platform, we can deliver minimal variation and high replicability to a targeted expression molecule.

"Using plants to discover, validate, and grow medicines is a decades-old idea that's finally becoming a reality." --Charles Legg, COO of Zea
