The flexibility of powder-based RP (or SFF) techniques and the densification method proposed in this paper would open a whole new range of applications both in the macro and micro scale where thermal constraints exist. This work starts from a simple idea, the infiltration of sintered skeletons made of pure gold spherical powder ranging between 5 and 40 μm in size, by binary gold eutectics based on silicon, germanium and tin, with a melting point as low as 278°C. The variable space was investigated in a preliminary manner. Experiments have shown that high densification rate, good surface finish and improved mechanical properties can be achieved with this process.
