Core Iron (VIM VAR) Applications

Core Iron (VIM VAR) is often employed in the manufacture of applications where soft magnetic components must operate in an environment where vacuum integrity is needed or in corrosive environments. This alloy is also known by the manufacturer, Carpenter Technology, under the trade name of Consumet Core Iron®.


The following examples illustrate Core Iron’s usage for industrial applications that utilize the alloys.

  • Magnetic pole pieces for scientific instruments
  • Microwave devices
  • Power tubes
  • Relays
  • Solenoids
