What is XC06 ?
Available as bulk solid plate up to 825 mm thickness, XC06 is a soft ferromagnetic iron providing high saturation polarisation, high permeability and low coercitive force with excellent homogeneity. Those properties are essential for high-tech magnet applications such as:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), MRI-guided proton therapy devices
- Particle physics accelerators (cyclotrons, synchrotrons)
- Magnet components (cores, yokes)
Thanks to its specific production route, Industeel XC06 grade exhibits a constant quality with an ultra-low carbon content and an extreme low level of residuals which does not exceed a few hundred of ppm. Excessive carbon content and residual elements found in conventional grades may impair the final performance of the grade : a decrease of saturation polarization, higher hysteresis losses and enhanced sensitivity to magnetic ageing (an increase of coercivity with time).
