The National Laboratories around the United States depend on rare metals and alloys to engineer and implement cutting edge technologies. Leading Edge Metals and Alloys is a strategic provider of materials to laboratory partners who need a reliable supply of rare and hard-to-find metals and alloys.
NETIC® is uniquely different from Co-NETIC®. It is an iron alloy that is often applied in fields of high intensity (strong fields) because of its high magnetic saturation characteristics. Frequently, NETIC® is used in conjunction with a layer of Co-NETIC® as layering is proven to provide extra precaution and/or lower risk of electro-magnetic interference. If used in combination, the NETIC® layer is placed closest to the source of interference, with Co-NETIC® or MuMETAL® layer closest to the component being shielded.
Co-NETIC® Or NETIC®?
In fields of low intensity, Co-NETIC® is used in order to utilize its high initial permeability and corresponding high attenuation characteristics. In strong fields of high intensity, NETIC® is preferred because of its high magnetic saturation characteristics. In some applications, combinations of the two materials may be useful, with NETIC® material always placed closer to the source of magnetic interference.
Co-NETIC® is considered far superior in shielding performance due to its consistent quality, material composition and Perfection Annealing process. A Ferromagnetic that is used primarily in low intensity fields where high attenuation is desired (high initial permeability & high shielding efficiency), it has become our leading brand. Co-NETIC® alloy is readily available from stock in three forms:
Co-NETIC® AA Perfection Annealed
Co-NETIC® Stress Annealed
Co-NETIC® B Stress Annealed
