Magnet Composite

10/24/2006 9:31 PM

Does anyone know of a company that produces permanent earth magnets that have carbon fiber strands interlaced inside them to increase their strength? I was thinking that if you were to place carbon strands into the pre-sintered powder then fired them both as one the powders would solidify together and the carbon would get treated at the same time. Let me know if im dreaming. thanks

The temp needed to sinter may degrade the carbon and some might get absorbed.

As they are they are strong in compression, but brittle, and weaker in tension

There are many prominent suppliers of magnets that you should contact, including: ShineEtsu, Hitachi. I am certain they have technical staff to assist you.

But, my choice would be to call Dexter Magnetic Materials. These folks work with all major magnetic material producers and have a very competent staff of professionals with many years of experience in the industry. To achieve the result you desire, they will know what is possible.

Also, would you care to share more about what you are trying to do and why you wish to add carbon fiber to a magnet?

Good Luck!

Try UGIMAG, they are expensive, if they can make them.

Looks like a recipe for making rare earth carbides.
