The magnetic properties of the non-stoichiometric Tm2Fe16 compound under hydrostatic pressures up to 1 GPa were studied. We have revealed that the high-temperature ferrimagnetic state easily magnetized in the basal plane is very sensitive to the volume changes and even moderate pressure is sufficient to its complete suppression and transformation to a helimagnetic state. At the same time, the low-temperature ferrimagnetic state easily magnetized along the hexagonal axis does not disappear under pressure and the temperature of its transition to the high-temperature magnetic states increases under pressure. The remarkable stability of the ground ferrimagnetic state under external pressure can be attributed to the strengthening of the uniaxial magnetic anisotropy and to the mutual perpendicular orientation of the magnetic moments in the ground and the high-temperature magnetic states.
