Coated soft magnetic products

Somaloy 1P

Somaloy 1P is the most economical baseline product.

  • It is available for all the powders -40 mesh, -100 mesh and -200 mesh.
  • Lubrication additive is Kenolube P11 typically at 0.4% - 0.5%.
  • Compaction at 600 – 800 MPa to reach high densities.
  • Component heat-treatment in air atmosphere at max 530°C.

Somaloy 3P

Somaloy 3P is suitable for application where high mechanical strength and permeability is most important.​

  • It is available for -40 mesh powder.
  • Lubrication additive is Lube 3P typically at 0.3% - 0.4%.
  • Compaction at 600 – 800 MPa with heated/controlled die temperature to reach high densities.

Component two stage heat-treatment in air+steam atmosphere at max 530°C.

Somaloy 5P is suitable for applications where low core losses is most important.

  • It is available for all the powders -40 mesh, -100 mesh and -200 mesh.
