dear rodney, you could certainly make your own. take a piece of dried
out PMC and grate it.

Are you looking to make your own PMC? How many kilos of silver do
you want to buy?. Seriously there is no cheap source for fine
silver powder suitable for PMC. To get the price down to something
near reasonable you would need to contract with a company who has a
gas atomizer to do a run of silver powder and these machines need to
use a kilo or more of silver to operate properly. You can buy
powdered silver from a laboratory supplier like Goodfellow
(http://www.goodfellow.com/) their current price for 10 grams of 2
micron diameter silver powder is $283.00 or 20 grams of 45 micron
(which will be too big for PMC ) is $234.00 so I don’t think that is
the way to go. This is why Mitsubishi Metals doesn’t have much to
worry about in competition from the do it yourself crowd.

That won’t be quite right as fine silver powder… The
filings/gratings of a dried piece will still have the organic binder
with it…

One would want to file a fired piece of PMC (or PMC+ or PMC3)…

Hi Rodney, If you grind a piece of PMC into powder you will have Fine
Silver and an organic binder. PMC has three ingredients, Pure Silver,
Water and Organic Binder. If you would like more please
contact me or go to www.pmcguild.com Judi Anderson Rio Grande PMC

Where are the chemists on this forum??? Isn’t there a process that
results in fine silver powder as a precipitant (right word??) that
would allow one to then capture it?? Maybe not for the average
person, but that might lead the average person to the right place.
Somewhere in the recesses of my mind, this comes back to me, but it’s
been way too many years!!

The powder shape is at least as important as the powder size in
sintering metal powder, so precipitate silver would probably not
work as well as gas atomized silver.
