Technical Information


  1. 1.

    Large magnets with a section over 4 cm2 must be transferred very quickly from the isothermal bath (furnace) to the tempering furnace without being allowed to cool—in 5–10 sec. Large magnets cannot be cooled to room temperature in air after isothermal thermomagnetic treatment.

  2. 2.

    When Ticonal alloys with γ phase are cooled from temperatures above 900°, ferromagnetic and structural transformations occur at 350-150°. The latter is accompanied by an increase in volume and stresses due to the phase transformation.

  3. 3.

    A concentration of 20–50 vol. % dispersed γ phase in the Ticonal alloy greatly strengthens it, while a small amount (0.5–2 vol.%) weakens it (in this case the γ phase is precipitated in the grain boundaries).
