Default Toriodal Material for a Power Transformer

I'm looking for the best toroid material for a power transformer application.

I need high saturation levels/high power at around 60Hz and as minimal loss in power transfer as possible. I would be extremely grateful for any assistance here as I'm new to this type of toroidal design work.

Why are you designing rather than buying off-the-shelf? 60Hz is standard power transfomer territory - the material used is grain oriented silicon steel, laminated. Here's a page with some core details - Silicon Steel Toroidal O-Cores - In Stock

Thank you for this info! It looks like exactly what I need. I'm not at liberty to discuss the project I'm working on except the type of transformer I'm designing just isn't available, so I have to build them myself.

There are plenty of transformer companies that will wind you a special order. I have bought these in Australia for very reasonable prices. You will get excellent results at a good price at a high quality standard.

Sorry, but my company will eventually be winding our coils. No out sourcing will be done. Thanks for the suggestion though...
