The Powder Technology Group -GTP- was created in 1996 and is part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical Engineering at the Higher Polytechnic School of the Carlos III University of Madrid.

GTP currently consists of a highly-qualified multidisciplinary team working to develop solutions in the area of Powder Technology (powder metallurgy).

We have a range of experience and offer integrated R+D +i services, consulting, technical assistance and customized training services. We also develop R+D projects with a national and international scope.

We are part of the ESTRUMAT consortium (Madrid Advanced Structural Materials Research Group).

Furthermore, we actively participate and are widely recognised in key, prestigious international forums for companies working in or related to this sector. We collaborate with the European Powder Metallurgy Association -EPMA and their American counterparts- MPIF–Metal Powder Industrial Federation, APMI–American Powder Metallurgy Institute y ASM–A Society for Materials.
