What is Electrical?

Electrical steels are renowned for their excellent magnetic properties and ability to increase the efficiency of electrical equipment – the result of having silicon in their chemical composition and the use of strict process controls during production.
Aperam South America has been producing electrical steel for several decades. Today, it is Latin American’s exclusive producer of grain oriented (GO) and non-oriented (NGO) steel.

GoCore is Aperam South America’s portfolio of grain oriented (GO) and super-oriented steels. Offering optimized magnetic properties in the direction of rolling, these steels are routinely used for power and distribution transformers.

Non grain oriented steels (NGO), on the other hand, have good magnetic properties in all directions of the sheet plane. As a result, they are mainly used in electric motors, compressors, reactors for lighting systems and energy meters.

Both GO and NGO silicon steels are coated with high dielectric strength surface films that reduce magnetic losses caused by the eddy currents generated in an electrical machine’s core.
