Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Contact Surface: Thanks to their flat shape, disc magnets provide a significant contact surface with other elements, which is beneficial in applications needing a stronger magnetic connection.
Applications in Technology: These magnets are often employed in many devices, such as sensors, stepper motors, or speakers, where a thin and wide shape is important for their operation.
Mounting: Their flat shape facilitates mounting, especially when there's a need to adhere the magnet to another surface.
Design Flexibility: The flat shape of the magnets gives designers with significant flexibility in arranging them in constructions, which can sometimes be more difficult with magnets of more complex shapes.
Stability: In certain applications, the flat base of a disc magnet may provide better stability, reducing the risk of shifting or rotating. However, it's important to remember that the optimal shape of a magnet depends on the specific project and requirements. In some cases, other shapes, like cylindrical or spherical, might be a better choice.

Advantages and disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense power, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose strength over time - after about 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are extremely resistant to demagnetization by external magnetic sources,
- In other words, thanks to the shiny nickel, gold, or silver finish, the element gains an aesthetic appearance,
- They have very high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet,
- Magnetic neodymium magnets are characterized by very high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet and can operate (depending on the shape) even at temperatures of 230°C or higher...
- Due to the option of accurate forming and adaptation to individual needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in various forms and dimensions, which amplifies their universality in usage.
- Wide application in the industry of new technologies – are used in hard drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical devices or various technologically advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They can break as they are extremely fragile when subjected to a powerful impact. If the magnets are exposed to impacts, we recommend using magnets in a metal holder. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts and also increases its overall strength,
- Magnets lose their strength due to exposure to high temperatures. In most cases, when the temperature exceeds 80°C, these magnets experience permanent reduction in strength (although it is worth noting that this is dependent on the form and size of the magnet). To avoid this problem, we offer special magnets marked with the [AH] symbol, which exhibit high temperature resistance. They can operate even at temperatures as high as 230°C or more,
- Magnets exposed to a humid environment can corrode. Therefore, when using them outdoors, we recommend using waterproof magnets made of rubber, plastic, or other moisture-resistant materials,
- Limited ability to create threads or complex shapes in the magnet - the use of a housing is recommended - magnetic holder
- Potential hazard arising from small pieces of magnets pose a threat, in case of ingestion, which becomes significant in the context of children's health. Additionally, miniscule components of these devices are able to complicate diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Handle Neodymium Magnets Carefully
Neodymium magnets are the strongest magnets ever created, and their strength can surprise you.
On our website, you can find information on how to use neodymium magnets. This will help you avoid injuries and prevent damage to the magnets.
Keep neodymium magnets far from youngest children.
Remember that neodymium magnets are not toys. Do not allow children to play with them. Small magnets can pose a serious choking hazard. If multiple magnets are swallowed, they can attract to each other through the intestinal walls, causing significant injuries, and even death.
Neodymium magnets can demagnetize at high temperatures.
Despite the fact that magnets have been observed to maintain their efficacy up to temperatures of 80°C or 175°F, it's essential to consider that this threshold may fluctuate depending on the magnet's type, configuration, and intended usage.
Neodymium magnets can attract to each other, pinch the skin, and cause significant injuries.
Magnets will attract each other within a distance of several to about 10 cm from each other. Don't put your fingers in the path of magnet attraction, because a major injury may occur. Magnets, depending on their size, can even cut off a finger or alternatively there can be a severe pressure or even a fracture.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are flammable.
Do not attempt to drill into neodymium magnets. Mechanical processing is also not recommended. Once crushed into fine powder or dust, this material becomes highly flammable.
Magnets made of neodymium are delicate and can easily break as well as get damaged.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by significant fragility. Neodymium magnets are made of metal and coated with a shiny nickel surface, but they are not as hard as steel. At the moment of collision between the magnets, small metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
Avoid bringing neodymium magnets close to a phone or GPS.
Magnetic fields can interfere with compasses and magnetometers used in aviation and maritime navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices. There are neodymium magnets in every smartphone, for example, in the microphone and speakers.
Neodymium magnets are not recommended for people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets produce strong magnetic fields that can interfere with the operation of a heart pacemaker. Even if the magnetic field does not affect the device, it can damage its components or deactivate the entire device.
The magnet is coated with nickel - be careful if you have an allergy.
Studies clearly indicate a small percentage of people who suffer from metal allergies such as nickel. An allergic reaction often manifests as skin redness and rash. If you have a nickel allergy, try wearing gloves or avoid direct contact with nickel-plated neodymium magnets.
Make sure not to bring neodymium magnets close to the TV, wallet, and computer HDD.
The strong magnetic field generated by neodymium magnets can destroy magnetic media such as floppy disks, video tapes, HDDs, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, or other devices. They can also damage devices like video players, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
