How extrinsic is the coercivity in NdFeB bonded magnets?


The influence of the densification step, performed by uniaxial pressing at room temperature, on the coercivity µ0Hc of NdFeB bonded magnets has been analyzed. The mass density does not play any role on µ0Hc of not cured magnets prepared by the mentioned method. Due to the brittle and intergranular character of the Nd2Fe14B-based phase fracture, the nanosized grains are not affected or the modification is negligible, which maintains µ0Hc unchanged. After curing, the intrinsic coercivity of the magnets is reduced as a function of the compaction pressure increase.
