Product Type - MQA

The MQA product line is Magnequench's first line of anisotropic powders used in the manufacture of bonded magnets. These powders have considerably higher residual inductance (Br) and energy product (BH)max relative to the MQP isotropic powders. MQA powders have been developed to serve markets that require higher magnetic properties, especially in automotive passenger compartment motors and home appliances. MQA powders are produced by magnetically aligning the powder particles in a magnet making process followed by crushing and coating steps to yield the final anisotropic powder. Companies utilizing MQA powders must align the magnet particles in their magnet making processes.
