Fex(CoNi)1-x (x=0.14, 0.20, 0.25) ternary alloy nanoparticles were fabricated by a self-catalyzed reduction method at a low temperature. The investigation of static magnetic properties revealed both saturation magnetization and coercive force enhanced with increasing Fe content. By dispersing alloy nanoparticles into paraffin matrix homogeneously, the electromagnetic properties of them were investigated experimentally and the electromagnetic absorption performances were calculated according to transmission line theory. Significant dielectric relaxation was found in the low Fe content sample, which is dominant in dielectric loss. The magnetic loss was attributed to natural resonance and the resonance peaks' shift to high frequency region with increasing Fe content. The enhanced electromagnetic absorption performances were obtained by adjusting Fe content to balance electromagnetic parameters, because the electromagnetic parameters can be varied by structural and magnetic properties.
