Ferrite is an extremely versatile material characterised by its magnetic properties. It is a porous ceramic material consisting of iron oxide, zinc oxide and other metal oxides. Ferrite is known for its high electrical insulation capacity and excellent corrosion resistance.
Due to its properties, ferrite is used in many applications, such as:
Electronic applications: Due to its magnetic properties, ferrite is an important component of electronic components such as transformers, inductors, coils, and magnetic cores. It is also used in antennas and solenoid valves.
Medical applications: Ferrite is used in medical technology to produce images in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is also used in hyperthermia treatment, where tumour cells are destroyed by heat.
Automotive applications: Ferrite is used as a magnetic core in the ignition coil of car engines.
In summary, the most important properties of ferrite are:
- High magnetic properties
- High electrical insulation capacity
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Good mechanical strength
- Good chemical resistance
