Silicon Core Iron C

Silicon Core Iron "C" offers maximum electrical resistivity, maximum initial permeability, and minimum hysteresis loss in AC and DC circuits. It possesses low residual magnetism in DC circuits and the effect of magnetic aging is negligible. The alloy is melted in electric arc furnaces to exacting chemical specifications, and carefully controlled in rolling and annealing practices to produce a fine-grained uniform quality magnetic core iron.
