Iron powders with insulating layers: Structure and magnetic properties

  • 1 Laboratory of Phys. of Magnetic Materials – Scientific–Practical Materials Research Centre NAS, Minsk, Belarus


The development and study of the composite magnetic soft material, the magnetic properties of which are close to the laminated metal magnets and the remagnetization losses is lower than that one of metal magnets is very relevant. The study of magnetic properties and magnitude of losses on the remagnetization of the developed low-frequency composite magnetically soft material, comprising separate iron 20 ÷ 100 mkm particles, covered by insulating layers (films) with thickness 3 ÷ 10 nm, in comparison with similar parameters of electrical steel 3412 (E320) was performed in this work.
