Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Moreover, although neodymium is a component of the strongest magnets, they are susceptible to corrosion in humid environments. Therefore, they are coated with a coating of gold to increase their durability. Interestingly that NdFeB neodymium magnets are about 13% lighter than SmCo magnets and, despite their power, easily break, which requires care during their handling. Therefore, any mechanical processing should be done before they are magnetized.
In terms of safety, there are several recommendations regarding the use of these magnets. They should not be used in acidic, basic, organic environments or where solvents are present, as well as in water or oil. Additionally, they can damage data on magnetic cards and hard drives, although data deletion using a neodymium magnet is not always certain.
In terms of properties in different environments, neodymium magnets are susceptible to corrosion, especially in humid conditions. Therefore, they are often covered with coatings, such as nickel, to protect them from external factors and prolong their durability. High temperatures exceeding 130°C can cause a deterioration of their magnetic properties, although there are specific types of neodymium magnets that can tolerate temperatures up to 230°C.
As for potential dangers, it is important to avoid using neodymium magnets in acidic environments, basic conditions, organic or solvent environments, unless they are adequately insulated. Additionally, their use is not recommended in wet conditions, oil, or in an environment containing hydrogen, as they may lose their magnetic strength.

Advantages as well as disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
In addition to immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose power over time - after about 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are highly resistant to demagnetization by external magnetic field,
- By applying a shiny coating of nickel, gold, or silver, the element gains an aesthetic appearance,
- They exhibit 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 many variants of shapes or sizes, which enhances their versatility in applications.
- Significant importance in the industry of new technologies – find application in HDD drives, electric motors, medical apparatus or other modern machines.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They can break as they are fragile when subjected to a strong 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 also 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 loss in strength (although it is worth noting that this is dependent on the shape 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,
- The use of a cover or a magnetic holder is recommended due to the limited possibilities of manufacturing threads or complex shapes in the magnet
- Possible danger associated with microscopic parts of magnets can be dangerous, in case of ingestion, which is particularly important in the context of children's health. Furthermore, small elements of these devices have the potential to complicate diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Precautions with Neodymium Magnets
You should maintain neodymium magnets at a safe distance from the wallet, computer, and TV.
Neodymium magnets generate intense magnetic fields that can damage magnetic media such as floppy disks, video tapes, HDDs, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, etc. devices. They can also damage videos, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are highly 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.
Do not bring neodymium magnets close to GPS and smartphones.
Magnetic fields generated by neodymium magnets interfere with compasses and magnetometers used in navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
Neodymium magnets can demagnetize at high temperatures.
Even though 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 magnetic are especially delicate, which leads to their breakage.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by considerable 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, sharp metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
Keep neodymium magnets away from people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets generate very strong magnetic fields that can interfere with the operation of a pacemaker. This happens because such devices have a function to deactivate them in a magnetic field.
The magnet coating is made of nickel, so be cautious 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 are the strongest magnets ever created, and their strength can shock you.
Read the information on our website on how to properly utilize neodymium magnets and avoid significant harm to your body and unintentional damage to the magnets.
Neodymium magnets can attract to each other due to their immense internal force, causing the skin and other body parts to get pinched and resulting in significant injuries.
If the joining of neodymium magnets is not under control, at that time they may crumble and also crack. You can't approach them to each other. At a distance less than 10 cm you should have them extremely strongly.
Maintain neodymium magnets away from youngest children.
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 severe injuries, and even death.
