Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Contact Surface: Due to their flat shape, disc magnets guarantee a larger contact surface with adjoining parts, which can be beneficial in applications requiring a stronger magnetic connection.
Applications in Technology: The magnets are often employed in different devices, such as sensors, stepper motors, or speakers, where a flat shape is essential for their operation.
Mounting: Their flat shape makes mounting, especially when there's a need to adhere the magnet to another surface.
Design Flexibility: The disc shape of the magnets allows designers with greater flexibility in placing them in constructions, which can be more difficult with magnets of more complex shapes.
Stability: In certain applications, the flat base of a disc magnet may offer better stability, minimizing the risk of sliding or rotating. However, it's important to remember that the optimal shape of a magnet is dependent on the specific application and requirements. In some cases, other shapes, such as cylindrical or spherical, might be more suitable.
Advantages and disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose strength over time. After 10 years, their strength decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They protect against demagnetization caused by external magnetic field extremely well,
- In other words, thanks to the shiny coating of nickel, gold, or silver, the element acquires an aesthetic appearance,
- They exhibit extremely high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet,
- Thanks to their high temperature resistance, they can operate (depending on the shape) even at temperatures up to 230°C and above...
- Due to the option of accurate forming and adaptation to individual needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in many variants of shapes and sizes, which enhances their versatility in applications.
- Wide application in advanced technologically fields – are used in hard drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical apparatus and other advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They are prone to breaking as they are fragile when subjected to a strong impact. If the magnets are exposed to impacts, it is suggested using magnets in a metal holder. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts and simultaneously increases its overall strength,
- Magnets lose their power 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,
- Due to their susceptibility to corrosion in a humid environment, we recommend using waterproof magnets made of rubber, plastic, or other moisture-resistant materials when using them outdoors,
- The use of a cover - a magnetic holder is recommended due to the limited production capabilities of creating threads or complex shapes in the magnet
- Health risk arising from small pieces of magnets pose a threat, in case of ingestion, which becomes significant in the context of child safety. Furthermore, small elements of these products have the potential to hinder the diagnostic process when they are in the body.
Be Cautious with Neodymium Magnets
It is essential to keep neodymium magnets away from children.
Remember that neodymium magnets are not toys. Be cautious and make sure no child plays with them. In the case of swallowing multiple magnets simultaneously, they can attract to each other through the intestinal walls. In the worst case scenario, this can lead to death.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Although magnets have shown to retain their effectiveness up to 80°C or 175°F, this temperature may vary depending on the type of material, shape, and intended use of the magnet.
Neodymium magnets are highly susceptible to damage, leading to shattering.
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 connection between the magnets, sharp metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
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.
Avoid bringing neodymium magnets close to a phone or GPS.
Neodymium magnets produce strong magnetic fields that interfere with magnetometers and compasses used in navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
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.
Under no circumstances should neodymium magnets be placed near a computer HDD, TV, and wallet.
Strong fields generated by neodymium magnets can damage magnetic storage media such as floppy disks, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, video tapes, or other similar devices. They can also damage televisions, VCRs, computer monitors, and CRT displays. You should especially avoid placing neodymium magnets near electronic devices.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are highly flammable.
Avoid drilling or mechanical processing of neodymium magnets. If the magnet is crushed into fine powder or dust, it becomes highly flammable.
Comparing neodymium magnets to ferrite magnets (found in speakers), they are 10 times stronger, and their strength can shock you.
To use magnets properly, it is best to familiarize yourself with our information beforehand. This will help you avoid significant harm to your body and the magnets themselves.
Neodymium Magnets can attract to each other, pinch the skin, and cause significant swellings.
Magnets may crack or crumble with uncontrolled joining to each other. Remember not to move them to each other or hold them firmly in hands at a distance less than 10 cm.
