The magnetic properties of rapidly quenched Sm(Co0.74Fe0.10Cu0.12Zr0.04)8 ribbons in the as-spun and after an one-step heat treatment process are examined in view of their use as high temperature permanent magnets. High coercivity can be obtained even in the as-spun material while homogeneity, coercivity and its temperature coefficients are improved by a annealing at 750 oC. The magnetization reversal does not show a clear pinning-type profile.
