What Is Barium Ferrite?

Barium Ferrite, also known as BaFe, is a highly magnetic material with a wide range of applications across multiple industries. One of its most distinctive characteristics is its high resistivity, large permeability, and high magnetization value, which make it an excellent microwave absorber[1]. This property alone makes it a valuable resource in the telecommunications industry.

Furthermore, Barium Ferrite’s unique particle shape gives it superior packing properties that outperform most other metal particles[2]. This high packing density makes it an ideal choice for applications that require compactness and durability. For example, it is often used in magnetic stripe cards, loudspeaker magnets, and long-term data storage due to its resistance to temperature change, corrosion, and oxidization[2].

In the realm of data storage, BaFe’s resistance to thermal demagnetization, corrosion, and oxidization makes it a popular choice. It is especially sought-after for high-capacity data storage on tapes and magnetic strips, where it outperforms metal particles[2].

Furthermore, BaFe’s stability up to 300°C makes it suitable for motor and generator designs. This robust ceramic is resistant to moisture and exhibits superior corrosion resistance. Due to its oxide nature, it has a greater life expectancy, making it a reliable choice in various industrial applications[2].

In addition, Barium Ferrite is an inexpensive material, with readily available raw materials[3]. This affordability, combined with its superior properties, makes it a preferred choice in various applications. Traditionally, it was used in transformer cores and cathode-ray tubes. However, with the increasing need for miniaturization and higher operating frequencies, new applications have emerged[3].

Efforts are being made to reduce the three main contributions to dissipation in soft ferrites – hysteresis loss, eddy current loss, and residual loss. By increasing the resistivity of ferrites, eddy current loss can be minimized[3]. These developments highlight the ongoing potential of Barium Ferrite in various industries, showcasing its significance and versatility.


Gallium(III) oxide has been studied in the use of lasers, phosphors, and luminescent materials.  It has also been used as an insulating barrier in tight junctions

We can help to supply:

  •  APT
