Standard Specification for 50 Nickel-50 Iron Powder Metallurgy Soft Magnetic Parts
|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
1.1Â This specification covers the magnetic properties of 50 nickel-50 iron parts fabricated by powder metallurgy techniques and is intended for parts that require high magnetic permeability, high electrical resistivity, low coercive field strength, and low hysteresis loss. It differs from the wrought alloy specification (see Specification A753) because these parts are porous. A number of magnetic properties such as permeability are proportional to the sintered density.
1.2Â This specification deals with powder metallurgy parts in the sintered or annealed condition. Should the sintered parts be subjected to any secondary operation that causes mechanical strain, such as machining or sizing, they should be resintered or annealed.
1.3Â The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to customary (cgs-emu and inch-pound) units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3.1Â There are selected values presented in two units, both of which are in acceptable SI units. These are differentiated by the word â€œor,â€ as in â€œÎ¼Î©-cm, or, Î©-m.â€
1.4Â This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5Â This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

This specification covers the magnetic property requirements of 50 nickel-50 iron soft magnetic parts fabricated by powder metallurgy techniques in the sintered or annealed conditions, intended for parts that require high magnetic permeability, high electrical resistivity, low coercive field strength, and low hysteresis loss. Magnetic parts shall be tested and adhere to chemical composition and sintered density requirements, to which magnetic and residual induction strongly depends on. Parts shall also be tested for their conformance to coercive field strength requirements. The user and producer shall agree upon a representative number of specimens for testing.View Less
