Vicalloy is a family of cobalt-iron-vanadium wrought permanently magnetic alloys. Vicalloy is precipitation hardened and can be formed by a number of cold working techniques. It is commonly used in electromechanical device applications, such as Wiegand wires because it shows a large Wiegand effect.
Has good ductile before the precipitation hardening heat treatment
Good cold work performance
Good corrosion resistance.
After precipitation hardening the hardness is as high as up to HRC60.
Vicalloy Ⅰ has been used for biasing magnets in meters and magnetic actuators, as magnetic coded devices, field coils for DC motors and servos, and hysteresis motor laminations. Special processed Vicalloy Ⅰ wire is used as Wiegand wire because it shows a large Wiegand effect.
