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 susceptible to corrosion in humid environments. For this reason, they are coated with a coating of silver to protect them from corrosion. Interestingly that NdFeB neodymium magnets are about 13% lighter than SmCo magnets and, despite their power, are brittle, 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 many recommendations regarding the use of these magnets. They should not be used in acidic, basic, organic environments or where solvents are present, and also in water or oil. Furthermore, 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 sensitive to corrosion, especially in humid conditions. Therefore, they are often covered with coatings, such as silver, to preserve them from environmental factors and extend their lifespan. High temperatures exceeding 130°C can result in 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 insulated. Additionally, their use is not recommended in water, oil, or in an environment containing hydrogen, as they may forfeit their magnetic strength.
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 about 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are exceptionally resistant to demagnetization caused by an external magnetic field,
- Thanks to the shiny finish and nickel, gold, or silver coating, they have an aesthetic appearance,
- They have exceptionally 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 form) even at temperatures of 230°C or higher...
- Thanks to the flexibility in shaping and the ability to adapt to specific requirements – neodymium magnets can be produced in a wide range of shapes and sizes, which enhances their versatility in applications.
- Key role in advanced technologically fields – find application in HDD drives, electric motors, medical apparatus and very 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 metal holder. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts, and at the same time increases its overall strength,
- High temperatures can reduce the strength of neodymium magnets. Typically, after heating above 80°C, most of them experience a permanent reduction 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 suggest 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
- Potential hazard associated with microscopic parts of magnets are risky, if swallowed, which is crucial in the context of child safety. Furthermore, tiny parts of these magnets are able to complicate diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Handle with Care: Neodymium Magnets
Under no circumstances should neodymium magnets be placed near a computer HDD, TV, and wallet.
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, or other devices. They can also destroy videos, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
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, most remarkable magnets on earth, and the surprising force between them can surprise you at first.
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 injuries.
Magnets may crack or alternatively crumble with careless joining to each other. You can't approach them to each other. At a distance less than 10 cm you should have them very strongly.
Neodymium magnets are not recommended for people with pacemakers.
In the case of neodymium magnets, there is a strong magnetic field. As a result, it interferes with the operation of a heart pacemaker. However, if the magnetic field does not affect the device, it can damage its components or deactivate the device when it is in a magnetic field.
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.
Maintain neodymium magnets far from youngest children.
Not all neodymium magnets are toys, so do not let children play with them. In such a situation, surgery is necessary to remove them. In the worst case scenario, it can result in death.
Never bring neodymium magnets close to a phone and 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 can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Whilst Neodymium magnets can lose their magnetic properties at high temperatures, it's important to note that the extent of this effect can vary based on factors such as the magnet's material, shape, and intended application.
Neodymium magnets are known for their fragility, which can cause them to crumble.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by significant fragility. Neodymium magnets are made of metal and coated with a shiny nickel, but they are not as durable as steel. At the moment of collision between the magnets, small metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
