Rare Earth Neodymium
Rare Earth magnets are the most powerful magnets in the world. They are also referred to as Neodymium or NdFeB, because they are composed mainly of Neodymium (Nd), Iron (Fe) and Boron (B)
Rare Earth Magnets are the most recent type of magnets available on the market, they come in a huge range of shapes, styles, strengths and attachment methods.
Ceramic ferrite magnets, have a grey natural ceramic finish. Ferrite magnets are stronger than Alnico and have much better corrosion resistance than Rare Earth. Ferrite magnets were developed as a low cost alternative to metallic magnets and have been manufactured since 1954.
Although they provide less strength than other magnets available today (see our Rare Earth magnets for higher strength), Ferrite magnets are frequently selected for their stability, tolerance against demagnetisation, outstanding corrosion resistance and their affordable price.
AlNiCo magnets are made by mixing aluminium, nickel and cobalt with iron and are particularly suitable for temperature sensitive applications. Al Nico is the first type of alloyed magnetic material and the oldest member of the magnet family (first developed in the early 1940's).
Because of its excellent linear temperature characteristics, high magnetic flux density and good corrosion resistance, it is used for products of all sizes, from tiny cellular telephone magnets, weighing less than one gram, to radar focusing magnets weighing twenty kilograms or more.
Pieces & Tabs: Small rectangular magnets that feature a self-adhesive back. These products are commonly attached to printed marketing materials, invitations, photos and cards.
Stripping: Narrow rolls of magnetic rubber stripping in a range of widths and lengths. Available with a range of backings, such as self-adhesive, glossy white (or coloured) PVC, and plain uncoated rubber. Very easy to cut to size.
Rolls: Wide rolls of magnetic rubber sheeting in a range of widths and lengths. Available with a range of backings, such as self-adhesive, glossy white (or coloured) PVC, and plain uncoated rubber. Very easy to cut to size.
Sheets: Pre-cut sheets of magnetic rubber in standard or oversize A4 and A3. Available in both self-adhesive and white gloss PVC.
