Hiperco® 50A

UNS #R30005

Hiperco 50A® is an iron-cobalt-vanadium soft magnetic alloy possessing high magnetic saturation (24 kilogauss), high D.C. maximum permeability, low D.C. coercive force, and low A.C. core loss. This alloy exhibits magnetic properties superior to those of other commercial iron-cobalt soft magnetic alloys. Hiperco® 50A is used primarily for magnetic cores in electrical equipment requiring high permeability at high magnetic flux densities or in tape cores where lowest A.C. losses and high permeability at high inductions are desired.
