Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Contact Surface: Due to their flat shape, disc magnets provide a significant contact surface with other elements, which can be beneficial in applications needing a stronger magnetic connection.
Applications in Technology: These magnets are often used in many devices, like sensors, stepper motors, or speakers, where a thin and wide shape is important for their operation.
Mounting: Their flat shape makes mounting, especially when it's necessary to adhere the magnet to a surface.
Design Flexibility: The flat shape of the magnets provides designers with significant flexibility in placing them in devices, which can be more difficult with magnets of other shapes.
Stability: In certain applications, the flat base of a disc magnet can provide 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 project and requirements. In some cases, other shapes, such as cylindrical or spherical, may be more suitable.
Advantages and disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose their power (of the magnet). After approximately 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are extremely resistant to demagnetization by external magnetic sources,
- Thanks to the shiny finish and nickel, gold, or silver coating, they have an aesthetic appearance,
- They have very high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet,
- By using an appropriate combination of materials, they can achieve high thermal resistance, allowing them to operate at temperatures up to 230°C and above...
- The ability for precise shaping or customization to specific needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in a wide range of shapes and sizes, which enhances their versatility in applications.
- Wide application in advanced technologically fields – are utilized in computer drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical apparatus or various technologically advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They can break when subjected to a powerful impact. If the magnets are exposed to impacts, we recommend using magnets in a protective case. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts and at the same time increases its overall strength,
- They lose power at high temperatures. Most neodymium magnets experience permanent loss of strength when heated above 80°C (depending on the form and height). However, we also offer special magnets with high temperature resistance, up to 230°C,
- 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 to health from tiny fragments of magnets are risky, if swallowed, which becomes significant in the context of children's health. It's also worth noting that tiny parts of these products have the potential to complicate diagnosis after entering the body.
Caution with Neodymium Magnets
Keep neodymium magnets as far away as possible from GPS and smartphones.
Magnetic fields interfere with compasses and magnetometers used in navigation for air and sea transport, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
Neodymium magnets can attract to each other, pinch the skin, and cause significant injuries.
Magnets will crack or alternatively crumble with uncontrolled connecting to each other. Remember not to move them to each other or hold them firmly in hands at a distance less than 10 cm.
Neodymium magnets are the most powerful, most remarkable magnets on the planet, and the surprising force between them can surprise you at first.
Read the information on our website on how to properly utilize neodymium magnets and avoid significant harm to your body and unintentional disruption to the magnets.
Under no circumstances should neodymium magnets be placed near a computer HDD, TV, and wallet.
The strong magnetic field generated by neodymium magnets can damage magnetic media such as floppy disks, video tapes, HDDs, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, etc. devices. They can also destroy videos, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
Do not give neodymium magnets to youngest 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.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are highly flammable.
Do not attempt to drill into neodymium magnets. Mechanical processing is also not recommended. If the magnet is crushed into fine powder or dust, it becomes highly flammable.
Neodymium magnets are not recommended for people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets generate very strong magnetic fields that can interfere with the operation of a pacemaker. This is because many of these devices are equipped with a function that deactivates the device in a magnetic field.
The magnet is coated with nickel. Therefore, exercise caution if you have an allergy.
Studies show a small percentage of people have allergies to certain metals, including 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.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Although magnets have demonstrated their effectiveness up to 80°C or 175°F, the temperature can vary depending on the type, shape, and intended use of the specific magnet.
Neodymium magnetic are noted for being fragile, which can cause them to shatter.
Magnets made of neodymium are highly delicate, and by joining them in an uncontrolled manner, they will break. 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, sharp metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
