Magnetic materials are used in countless industrial and consumer products that modern society depends on every day. These materials are used in everything from credit cards and electric motors to generators and various medical and scientific instruments. Magnetic materials are also found in speakers, microphones and magnetic recording media. These are just a few of the innumerable items that the use of magnetic materials makes possible.
While most people are familiar with ferromagnetic materials, such as permanent magnets, all materials can be influenced to some degree by magnetic fields. The magnetic behavior of different materials can vary greatly and for many industrial applications, therefore it is imperative to fully understand these magnetic properties and how they can be affected.
Helping companies and manufacturers test the magnetic properties of a wide range of materials are the experts at EMSL Analytical, Inc. Their world-renowned scientists utilize state-of-the-art testing systems that few laboratories in the world have access to. These testing services are often essential for the selection, production and quality control of magnetic materials used in industrial applications and for consumer products.
EMSL’s testing methods conform to ASTM standards, including A342, A343, A773 and A977. Their comprehensive range of magnetic property testing services includes both “soft” and “hard” magnetic materials. These services include:
- Saturation magnetization
- Maximum, initial and other permeabilities
- Remanence and coercive field
- Hysteresis loss
- DC and AC B-H curve
- Epstein frame and ring samples testing for soft-magnetic materials
- Demagnetization curve of permanent magnet (testing temperatures up to 200°C)
