AbstractA composition comprising a powder of iron and nickel and a binder (e.g. wax) is injection molded. The powder contains 0.5 to 10% by weight of nickel and has an average particle diameter not exceeding 45 microns. The binder is removed from the molded product. The molded product is sintered, and the sintered product is cooled to room temperature slowly at a rate of 2° C. to 50° C. per minute. The sintered product is of an iron-nickel alloy, has a high density and a high level of soft ferromagnetic properties, and may be complicated in shape.
