Descriptions of High Permeability “49"® AlloyMolybdenum-Lanthanum-Wire

High Permeability “49" alloy is a 48% nickel-iron alloy which has a saturation flux density of approximately 15,000 gausses after hydrogen annealing. Hysteresis loss is very low in either DC or AC circuits in which the frequency is less than 400 cycles per second.

Following a low temperature hydrogen anneal at 1300/1400°F (704/760°C), alloy 49 exhibits constant permeability characteristics. Its initial permeability is approximately 500 gausses.

High Permeability “49"® Alloy Available Forms:

Bar, Casting, Forging, Tubular, and Wire

Specifications of High Permeability “49"® Alloy
