anneal 1018

i have decided on 1018 as a core material.  will hardening or annealing improve the performance of 1018 as a coil core material?

RE: anneal 1018

An well annealed as possible will help you.
Are you making a lot of these or just a few?
If not many you might look at using a long anneal in hydrogen.

RE: anneal 1018

Hello AcmeTim,

I can offer 1002(.02% max. Carbon) core material.  This will provide the lowest residual magnetism. (Oe) after a simple stress relief anneal.  In fact, it will out perform the 1018 without an anneal.  However, a stress anneal is recommended.

Best Regards,


RE: anneal 1018

i would like the 1002 but its about 25 times higher than 1018 and im not sure the increase is worth the price difference
