  • Thermal annealing

    Please note, that with very few exceptions soft magnetic alloys, and in particular finished parts, need to be treated with a thermal annealing to obtain the desired magnetic properties.

Properties of material

The nickel-iron alloy MUMETALL® is particularly well suited for applications requiring medium magnetic saturation induction, low magnetic coercive field strength and high permeability. Its high nickel content makes the mechanical working of MUMETALL® not unproblematic. Its magnetic properties however make the material one of the most common shielding materials. The high nickel content in most cases makes a surface corrosion protection unnecessary.

Among the most common applications of MUMETALL® are shielding for medium field strengths, multi-layer shielding, actuators and lamination stacks. MUMETALL® can be obtained through SEKELS GmbH as sheets, strip stock, final magnetically annealed foil, or rods, but also in form of finished parts.
