Alphaform - trade name for group of magnetodielectric materials manufactured by Fluxtrol Inc.

Alphaform has similar magnetic properties to such materials like Fluxtrol, but it is delivered in a formable state so that it can be modelled into desired shape. A flux concentrator made from Alphaform can be easily retrofitted to an existing induction coils, but with wider mechanical tolerances due to the manual shaping process. The product is a soft magnetic composite based on thermal-curing epoxy binder. The resin cures by exposing to temperature up to 190°. After curing and during normal operation the part can be exposed to 225° for prolonged periods, and up to 300° for short intervals.1)
