Hiperco alloy 50™ is a soft magnetic alloy. It can be easily cracked while forging.
Hiperco 50 and Hiperco 50A are soft magnetic alloys of 49 wt.% cobalt. 2 wt.% vanadium and balance iron. They are commonly used in electric and magnetic applications where high magnetic saturation is required.
The chemical composition of Hiperco alloy 50™ is given in the following table.
