Our Nickel Flakes are all manufactured from high purity (99.8%) carbonyl nickel feed-stock and all exhibit ferromagnetic characteristics.
There are four grades available, one for electrically conductive applications, two for decorative/protective uses and a further product for general non-conductive industrial Applications, as follows:
Stainless Steel Flakes
Our Stainless Steel Flakes are all manufactured from high purity UPS–S–31603 stainless steel powder (formerly known as AISI Type 316 L).
Four grades are available:
NOTE: Although composition of these flakes (18% Cr: 10% Ni: 3% Mo: Bal Fe) would normally result in a non-magnetic austenitic structure, the process of flaking from powder creates structural changes that induces ferromagnetic properties.
Ferromagnetic flakes manufactured from a standard Permalloy composition magnetic powder (82% Ni – 2% Mo – 16% Fe)
