The Bi and Zn substitution effects on the sintering behaviors, magnetic and electric properties of hexagonal ferrites with a composition of 2(Ba 1-xBixO)·2(ZnyCo0.8-yCu 0.2O)·6(Fe2-x/3Znx/3O3) were investigated. The results showed that the addition of Bi and Zn can significantly promote Co2Y densification. The Y phase may be triggered to decompose into M and spinel phases at high sintering temperatures (above 1050 °C) for samples with excess Bi (x = 0.2) substitution, which resulted in densification and magnetic properties degradation. Co2Y ferrites with x = 0.1 and y = 0.4 sintered at 1050 °C show a relative density of 94%, a high initial permeability of 4.5, a quality factor (Q) of 50.
