In this study, the fabrication of open cellular stainless steel (SS316L) foams by using an innovative spacer which is crystalline sugar through compaction method was investigated. Powder metallurgy process needs to go through the mixing, pressing, sintering and analysis. The selected composition of SS316L was 50 wt % and 55 wt % SS316L while the remaining percentages are foaming agent or binder. Then, sintering process was conducted in the tube furnace. The SS3 16L foams were characterised using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Energy Diffraction X-ray (EDX). The XRD was detected Austenite stainless steel. Then, the detected elements in the SS316L foam were 0, K, Mn, Cr, Fe, Mo and Al.
