The area of application of soft magnetic composites is still expanding. Their magnetic properties are very important but in many cases it is also necessary to know their mechanical properties. One of the parameters that affects the mechanical properties of the finished composites is grain size. The paper presents the influence of grain size of soft magnetic powders on mechanical properties of soft magnetic composites, also called dielectromagnetics. The following mechanical properties were measured: hardness, bending strength and compressive strength. In the experiments two types of magnetic powders were used. Samples were made by compression moulding. Structures and mechanical properties of chosen materials were presented.
