Flake Products with Magnetic Properties

Permalloy Magnetic FlakesMaterials with soft magnetic properties are becoming increasingly important in sophisticated technologies, mostly electronics related.

Magnetic flake products are typically around 1 micron thick, which make them especially suitable for incorporation into coatings and other thin film applications.

For many years, small metallic products have been available in flake form, although the vast majority of these are non-magnetic

Hart Materials is able to offer a total of eight metallic flake products based on nickel, nickel permalloy and stainless steel, all of which show soft ferromagnetic properties.

Dr. Tony Hart, Managing Director of Hart Materials, comments: “The fact that stainless steel flakes manufactured from austenitic material show magnetic properties not dissimilar to those of nickel flake is surprising.”

“What happens in the flaking process to cause this change of a basic property is not clear but it is a consistent phenomenon rendering the flakes very useful.”
