Soft magnetic composite materials play an important role in nowadays industry, replacing the traditional materials such as electrical steels and soft ferrites, especially at medium and higher frequency applications. The material can be tailored for a specific application by changing the composition of the material and by adaptation of the fabrication process. The aim of this work was to investigate the morphology, phase composition and magnetic properties of soft magnetic composite materials with various magnetic content to minimize the total magnetic losses. The prepared sample series was based on the mixture of two different ferromagnets Vitrovac 6155 and Somaloy 700 without addition of insulating material. The samples were prepared by conventional powder metallurgy with particular fraction of Vitrovac in the form: of a ring for magnetic measurements in AC fields and electric resistivity measurements. The samples with 5 wt% and 20 wt% fractions of Vitrovac exhibit lower values of total losses in comparison with Somaloy heat treated at 530°C.
