Description / Abstract:

This specification covers commonly used wrought nickel-iron soft magnetic alloys produced or supplied expressly for use in magnetic cores and other parts requiring high magnetic permeability, high electrical resistivity, low coercive field strength, and low core loss.

This specification covers materials supplied by a producer or converter to the form and physical condition desired for fabrication into parts that will later be given a final heat treatment to achieve the desired magnetic characteristics. It covers materials supplied in the form of forging billet; hotrolled plate, strip, and bar; cold-finished bar; cold-rolled and annealed sheet and strip; shaped bar and wire; and wire.

This specification does not cover either powder metallurgically produced or cast parts. 

This specification lists requirements for strip products having isotropic or semi-isotropic magnetic properties but does not include requirements for anisotropic or square hysteresis loop alloys or alloys processed to yield flattened hysteresis loops by use of heat treatments in an applied magnetic field. 

This specification does not cover alloys modified by the addition of elements such as sulfur and selenium to enhance machinability. 

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
