Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Moreover, although neodymium is part of the strongest magnets, they are prone 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, 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 many 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. Furthermore, 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 sensitive to corrosion, especially in humid conditions. Therefore, they are often covered with thin coatings, such as nickel, to shield them from external factors and prolong their durability. High temperatures exceeding 130°C can cause a deterioration of their magnetic strength, although there are particular 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 atmosphere containing hydrogen, as they may forfeit their magnetic strength.
Advantages as well as disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose their strength (of the magnet). After about 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They protect against demagnetization caused by external magnetic sources very well,
- Thanks to the shiny finish and nickel, gold, or silver coating, they have an aesthetic appearance,
- They possess very 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 or the ability to adapt to specific requirements – neodymium magnets can be produced in many variants of shapes or sizes, which amplifies their universality in usage.
- Significant importance in the industry of new technologies – find application in hard drives, electric motors, medical apparatus and very advanced devices.
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 simultaneously increases its overall strength,
- Magnets lose their strength 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,
- They rust in a humid environment. For outdoor use, we recommend using waterproof magnets, such as those made of rubber or plastic,
- 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
- Possible danger associated with microscopic parts of magnets are risky, if swallowed, which becomes significant in the aspect of protecting young children. Furthermore, miniscule components of these products are able to be problematic in medical diagnosis after entering the body.
Handle Neodymium Magnets Carefully
Avoid bringing neodymium magnets close to a phone or GPS.
Intense 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 attract to each other, pinch the skin, and cause significant injuries.
Magnets will crack or alternatively crumble with careless joining to each other. Remember not to approach them to each other or have them firmly in hands at a distance less than 10 cm.
Magnets made of neodymium are highly delicate, they easily break as well as can become damaged.
Neodymium magnets are extremely 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 connection between the magnets, small metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
Comparing neodymium magnets to ferrite magnets (found in speakers), they are 10 times stronger, and their power can shock you.
Please review the information on how to handle neodymium magnets and avoid significant harm to your body, as well as prevent unintentional disruption to the magnets.
Neodymium magnets can demagnetize 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.
Magnets are not toys, youngest should not play with them.
Remember that 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.
Do not place neodymium magnets near a computer HDD, TV, and wallet.
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.
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.
Avoid contact with neodymium magnets if you have a nickel 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.
People with pacemakers are advised to avoid neodymium magnets.
In the case of neodymium magnets, there is a strong magnetic field. As a result, it interferes 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.
