Arkival’s Curie temperature (TC), or Curie point measurements are designed to determine the critical temperature at which magnetic materials loose their permanent magnetic properties. Controlled temperature tests are performed in inert gas environments to determine the temperature (or temperature range) for which magnetic losses occur and the temperature below which magnetic properties return.
Magnetic forces defined by the materials’ magnet moment result from the materials atomic structure and the determination of the Curie temperature is the point or region which a material’s intrinsic magnetic moments disorient and change direction.
The determination of a magnetic materials’ Curie temperature is the point or temperature region which a material’s intrinsic magnetic moments disorient and randomly change direction.
Our lab facilities and magnetometers enable us to apply external magnetic fields during a controlled high temperature heating process while preventing material oxidation in an inert gas environment.
