Nanocomposite Pr9Fe74Co12B5 and Pr9Fe74Co12BSn0.5 ribbons were directly prepared by melt-spinning. Measurements of reversible and irreversible magnetization and magnetic viscosity were performed on the ribbons. It is found that the demagnetization curves of the both samples show a single hard phase behavior at room temperature, while a two-phase behavior at low temperature. The sample with Sn addition, because of its more homogeneous microstructure, shows a more obvious two-phase behavior than the Sn free one at low temperature. Furthermore, the increase of the volume fraction and grain sizes of the soft phase, in the Sn-doped ribbons, increases the portions of reversible magnetization and decreases the nucleation field Hn. The investigation of the magnetic viscosity shows that the activation volume is related to the grain sizes of the soft phase.
