Word Description
Permanent Magnet A material or object that produces a magnetic field, and is resistant to external demagnetisation. Permanent magnets create their own persistent, unsupported magnetic field (as opposed to an electromagnet).
Pole Magnetic Poles are the surfaces from which the invisible lines of magnetic flux emanate and connect on return to the magnet.
Pull Strength The weight (in metric units) required to remove a magnet from industry-standard 3mm thick mild steel. These "strengths" are measured using mathematical calculations, and should be used as a general guide only.
