  2. questionDoes Rust Affect a Magnet?
    What is rust? Rusting is a chemical reaction between iron and oxygen, in the presence of water. The reaction creates a flaky, reddish iron-oxide coating as the iron corrodes away. Given sufficient time, oxygen, and water, any iron mass will eventually convert entirely to rust and disintegrate. R ...

  3. questionWhich rubber material thickness?
    The thickness of magnetic rubber material varies between products. We stock a variety of products in varying thicknesses to suit a multitude of applications. Click here to see our range of magnetic flexible rubber material products. Regardless of thickness, magnetic rubber cannot attract throug ...

  4. questionWhat is Matchpull rubber?
    This help centre article is currently undergoing maintenance. Self-Adhesive Flexible Magnetic Strip - SIGNS - FLYSCREENS - DOUBLE GLAZING Width 12.5mm x 1.6mm Thickness x 30mtrs per roll. For non-steel surfaces use both 'A' and 'B' rolls. Matchpull "A" roll attatches strongly with 'B' roll ...

  5. questionMaximum Operating Temperatures
    How much can a magnet be heated? Our items come in several product families (Rare Earth, Ferrite, Alnico and Rubber), and have maximum operating temperatures which should not be exceeded. The temperatures for each product family are listed as follows: RARE EARTH Maximum 80°c FERRITE Maximum ...

  6. questionWhat's in a Magnet?
    Contrary to popular belief, a Rare Earth magnet is not a solid block of metal! Exterior Coating Magnets are coated in a protective outer layering, which combats corrosion and chipping. Ordinarily, magnets are triple coated as "Ni, Cu, Ni". In some circumstances, magnets may have different co ...

  7. questionUnits of Magnetism
    Measuring the strength of an invisible force is difficult. Throughout our website you'll see a number of different scales used to measure the strength of a magnet. Each of these measurements have their advantages and disadvantages, and can interpret the same magnet differently. So, which unit i ...

  8. questionHow are Magnets Made?
    1. RAW MATERIALS Minerals - such as Neodymium, Iron and Boron - are sourced from all around the world. Many required elements, such as Neodymium, are very uncommon and newver found on their own. They must be heavily refined & processed before the material is useable! 2. MI ...

  9. questionPoles & Directions of Magnetism
    Our magnets can be magnetised across any axis, hence allowing them to be used to different effect. The 'Direction of Magnetism' determines on which side of the magnet the north and south poles appear. Here are our most common directions of magnetism: Axially Magnetised through thickness D ...

  10. questionTypes of Magnets
    There are three main types of iron-based, but artificially made, permanent magnets. They are manufactured from various combinations of raw material elements, which are combined through a powder metallurgical process to produce different magnet types that are shaped by various moulding, casting ...

  11. questionWhat are Magnet Grades?
    Rare Earth In rare earth neodymium magnets, the grade refers to the materials used in the production process. Material "grades" range from N27 to N52 (higher is stronger). Some grades may be followed with a letter designation, which denotes a special increased temperature feature of a product. ...

  12. questionUnderstanding the Product Description Page
    Pull Strength: The weight (in metric units) required to remove a magnet from industry-standard 3mm thick mild steel. A pull strength is calculated for each product wherever possible, and is helpful when comparing two magnets. NOTE: It is not possible to produce a pull strength for some prod ...
