Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Moreover, even though neodymium is a component of the strongest magnets, they are prone to corrosion in humid environments. Therefore, they are coated with a coating of epoxy 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. For this reason, any mechanical processing should be done before they are magnetized.
In terms of safety, there are several recommendations regarding the use of these magnets. It is advisable to avoid their use in acidic, basic, organic environments or in solvents, and also in water or oil. Additionally, they can distort data on magnetic cards and hard drives, although data deletion using a neodymium magnet is not guaranteed.
In terms of properties in different environments, neodymium magnets are susceptible to corrosion, especially in conditions of high humidity. Therefore, they are often coated with coatings, such as nickel, to shield them from environmental factors and prolong their durability. Temperatures exceeding 130°C can cause a deterioration of their magnetic properties, although there are particular types of neodymium magnets that can withstand temperatures up to 230°C.
As for dangers, it is important to avoid using neodymium magnets in acidic environments, basic conditions, organic or solvent environments, unless they are properly protected. Additionally, their use is not recommended in wet conditions, oil, or in an environment containing hydrogen, as they may lose their magnetic strength.
Advantages and disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
In addition to immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose their strength (of the magnet). After approximately 10 years, their strength decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are highly resistant to demagnetization by external magnetic field,
- Thanks to the shiny finish and nickel, gold, or silver coating, they have an aesthetic appearance,
- They exhibit extremely high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet,
- By using an appropriate combination of materials, they can achieve significant thermal resistance, allowing them to operate at temperatures up to 230°C and above...
- Thanks to the flexibility in shaping and the ability to adapt to specific requirements – neodymium magnets can be produced in various forms and dimensions, which expands the range of their possible uses.
- Significant importance in modern technologies – find application in hard drives, electric motors, medical apparatus and 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 steel housing. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts and simultaneously increases its overall strength,
- High temperatures can reduce the power of neodymium magnets. Typically, after heating above 80°C, most of them experience a permanent loss in strength (although it is dependent on the form and size). To prevent this, we offer special magnets marked with the symbol [AH], which are highly resistant to high temperatures. They can operate even at temperatures up to 230°C, making them an ideal solution for applications requiring high-temperature operation,
- 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
- Health risk associated with microscopic parts of magnets are risky, when accidentally ingested, which becomes significant in the aspect of protecting young children. It's also worth noting that small elements of these products are able to hinder the diagnostic process when they are in the body.
Handle Neodymium Magnets Carefully
Neodymium magnets are fragile and can easily crack and shatter.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by significant fragility. Magnets made of neodymium are made of metal and coated with a shiny nickel, but they are not as durable as steel. In the event of a collision between two magnets, there may be a scattering of fragments in different directions. Protecting your eyes is crucial in such a situation.
Neodymium magnets should not be in the vicinity children.
Neodymium magnets are not toys. Do not allow children to play 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.
The magnet is coated with nickel. Therefore, exercise caution 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.
Keep neodymium magnets away from the wallet, computer, and TV.
Magnetic 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. In addition, they can damage televisions, VCRs, computer monitors, and CRT displays. You should especially avoid placing neodymium magnets near electronic 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 magnets can attract to each other, pinch the skin, and cause significant injuries.
If the joining of neodymium magnets is not controlled, at that time they may crumble and crack. Remember not to move them to each other or hold them firmly in hands at a distance less than 10 cm.
Under no circumstances should neodymium magnets be brought close to GPS and smartphones.
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.
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.
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.
Comparing neodymium magnets to ferrite magnets (found in speakers), they are 10 times stronger, and their strength can surprise you.
