Abstract

In this work a study concerning the reprocessing of sintered REFeB (RE = Nd and/or Pr) magnets to prepare bonded magets and semi-hard magnetic compounds will be carried out. Firstly, REFeB powders with optimized remanence and coercivity are intended to be obtained by means of hydrogen decrepitation and/or the hydrogenation-disproportionation-dessorption-recombination processes. Processing conditions as the exposure time and hydrogen dessorption temperature will be verified. The magnets will be prepared by uniaxial pressing. Besides, the aging of powders will be verified in distinct conditions under air. Due to their intrinsic properties, the hydrides Nd2Fe14BHx and/or Pr2Fe14BHx will be studied as potential semi-hard magnetic materials. Both of them have magnetization comparable to that of Fe50Ni50 (~155 Am2kg-1) and reduced magnetocrystalline anisotropy. The latter makes possible a low coercivity compared to that of the RE2Fe14B phase. The processes of hydrogen absorption will be used and studied in a similar way compared to the first case. Magnetic characterization will be carried out by a vibrating sample magnetometer (powder) and hysteresisgraph (magnet). Microstructural characterization will be performed by SEM, TEM, XRD and TMA. Further techniques may also be employed depending of the project results. (AU)
