The Influence of Al, Cu and P Content on the Magnetic Properties of PrFeCoBNb-Based HDDR Magnets
This paper reports the results of investigations carried out to determine the magnetic properties of some praseodymium-based magnets represented by the formula Pr14Fe63.9-xCo16B6Nb0.1Mx. Bonded magnets of various compositions were prepared from annealed alloys using the hydrogenation, disproportionation, desorption and recombination (HDDR) process. The HDDR powders were isostatically pressed and bonded with cyanoacrylate adhesive to form permanent magnets. The effect of the addition element content on the magnetic properties of these magnets was investigated. The amount of Al, Cu and P addition has a significant effect on the magnetic behavior of these magnets. Under the present processing condition 0.3 at%Al enhanced the intrinsic coercivity to 1.27 and a minimal amount of P improved the remanence to 0.77 T. Copper addition was deleterious to the magnetic properties of the HDDR bonded magnets, independently on the content added.
