Stan Zurek, Fluxtrol A, Encyclopedia-Magnetica.com, {accessed 2019-04-23}

Fluxtrol A - a trade name of high-frequency magnetic material manufactured by Fluxtrol Inc. There is a whole class of materials named Fluxtrol.1)

Fluxtrol A is designed to be used in flux concentrators for induction heating. The manufacturer recommends operating frequency between 1-50 kHz.

Fluxtrol A can be replaced by the improved material Fluxtrol 100.2)
