Powder Metallurgy Soft-Magnetic Alloys
Soft magnetic alloy powder metallurgy is used primarily for their magnetic response characteristics in DC magnetic fields. Post-sinter annealing normally is not required for the PM soft-magnetic alloys. However, some secondary operations, such as repressing or steam treatment, may degrade magnetic properties.
The pure iron and iron-phosphorus alloys may also be used in structural applications requiring high ductility and impact energy. Plating or steam treatment are used to improve surface wear characteristics since a quench and temper heat treatment is not possible due to the lack of carbon in these alloys.
