Hard Magnetic Materials
- Coercivity: The capability of a ferromagnetic material to hold up (resist) a peripheral magnetic field without getting demagnetized.
- Retentivity (Br): It is the amount of magnetism that a ferromagnetic material can maintain even after the magnetic field is decreased to zero.
- Permeability: It is used to determine how a material reacts to the applied magnetic field.
- Magnetic materials are mainly classified (based on the magnitude of coercive force) into two sub domains - hard magnetic materials and soft magnetic materials,
But if it gets magnetised, it will be permanently magnetised. That is why; it is also called as permanent magnetic material. They have coercive force greater than 10kA/m and have high retentivity. When we expose a hard magnet to an external magnetic field for the first time, the domain grows and rotates to align with the applied field at the saturation magnetization. After that, the field is removed. As a result, the magnetization is somewhat reverted but it does not track the magnetization curve any longer. A certain amount of energy (Br) is stored in the magnet and it becomes permanently magnetized.
Hysteresis LoopThe total area of the hysteresis loop = the energy which is dissipated when a material of unit volume is magnetized during a cycle of operation. The B-H curve or hysteresis loop of the hard magnetic materials will be always having large area because of large coercive force as shown in figure below.
BH ProductThe product BH varies along the demagnetisation curve. The good permanent magnet will have maximum value of product BHmax. We have to know that the dimension of this BH implies energy density (Jm-3). So this is called the energy product.
Properties of Hard Magnetic Materials
- Utmost retentivity and coercivity.
- Value of energy product (BH) will be large.
- The shape of BH loop is nearly rectangle.
- High hysteresis loop.
- Small initial permeability.

- Automotive: motor drives for fans, wipers, injection pumps; starter motors; Control for seats, windows etc.
- Telecommunication: Microphones, Loud Speakers, Telephone Ringers etc.
- Data processing: Printers, Stepping Motors, Disc Drives and Actuators.
- Consumer electronics: Home computers, Clocks, DC Motors for showers etc.
