Process: Powder Forged (P/F)
Weight: 0.75 kg (1.65 lb) as-forged
     0.66 kg (1.45 lb) finished
Alloy: Copper-Steel
Tensile Strength: 760 MPa (110,000 psi)
Yield Strength: 550 MPa (80,000 psi)
Hardness: 24 HRC
Density: 7.84 g/cm³ (0.283 lb./in³)

P/F produces rods with mechanical properties equivalent to those of conventional precision forging. For example, the mean endurance limit is 275 MPa (40,000 psi) with a standard deviation of less than 5%. This value is 153% of the stress level when the engine is operating at the maximum functional design loads. The high level of fatigue performance is achieved by forging to 99.6% of relative density, virtually eliminating microporosity, and by maintaining a high level of powder purity.
P/F also produces rods with closer tolerances than their precision forged counterparts. For example, dimensional variation on the outside profile of the rod is held to 0.12 mm (0.005 in) compared with 0.5 mm (0.020 in) for conventional precision-forged rods.
