Carbide parts can be magnetized in production as well as in operation. In the following application report the demagnetization of carbide is considered. To demagnetize hard metal, which mostly consists of tungsten carbide with cobalt as binder, very high field strengths of often more than 200 kA/m (250 mT / 2500 Gauss) are required. However, a reduction of the residual magnetism is also possible with lower field strengths.
