Chrome Core® 8-FM

Chrome Core 8-FM is in a family of controlled chemistry, chromium-iron alloys that are candidates for use in magnetic components where corrosion resistance superior to that of pure iron, low carbon steel, and silicon-iron alloys is desired without the substantial decrease in saturation induction associated with 18% Cr ferritic stainless steels. Key benefits of this magnet include:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Extended shelf life
  • No protective coatings required

Corrosion Resistance for Chrome Core® 8-FM

Chrome Core 8-FM exhibited no noticeable rusting in 95°F (35°C) 95% relative humidity tests and have demonstrated corrosion resistance generally similar to 18% chromium ferritic stainless steel in certain simulated alcohol-base fuel environments. Chrome Core alloys were evaluated along with comparison materials in environments designed to simulate or exceed the corrosive effects of some methanol fuels.
