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 gold 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 special caution 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. They should not be used in acidic, basic, organic environments or in solvents, as well as in water or oil. Additionally, they can distort 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 coated with thin coatings, such as nickel, to preserve them from environmental factors and prolong their durability. Temperatures exceeding 130°C can cause a deterioration of their magnetic strength, although there are specific types of neodymium magnets that can withstand temperatures up to 230°C.
As for potential dangers, it is important to avoid using neodymium magnets in acidic environments, basic environments, 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 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 strength over time - after 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 exhibit extremely high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet,
- Magnetic neodymium magnets are characterized by hugely high magnetic induction on the surface of the magnet and can operate (depending on the shape) even at temperatures of 230°C or higher...
- The ability for precise shaping or customization to specific needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in various forms and dimensions, which expands the range of their possible uses.
- Significant importance in modern technologies – are utilized in hard drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical equipment and various technologically advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They are prone to breaking as they are fragile when subjected to a strong impact. If the magnets are exposed to impacts, it is suggested using magnets in a metal holder. The steel housing in the form of a holder protects the magnet from impacts and simultaneously 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 reduction 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 suggest using waterproof magnets made of rubber, plastic, or other moisture-resistant materials,
- 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
- Health risk arising from small pieces of magnets pose a threat, if swallowed, which is particularly important in the aspect of protecting young children. It's also worth noting that miniscule components of these devices can be problematic in medical diagnosis after entering the body.
Handle Neodymium Magnets with Caution
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Although magnets are generally resilient, their ability to maintain their magnetic potency can be influenced by factors like the type of material used, the magnet's shape, and the intended purpose for which it is employed.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are flammable.
Avoid drilling or mechanical processing of neodymium magnets. If the magnet is crushed into fine powder or dust, it becomes highly flammable.
Neodymium magnets are the strongest, most remarkable magnets on the planet, and the surprising force between them can shock you at first.
Familiarize yourself with our information to correctly handle these magnets and avoid significant injuries to your body and prevent 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 swellings.
Neodymium magnets jump and clash mutually within a radius of several to around 10 cm from each other.
Neodymium magnetic are fragile and can easily crack as well as shatter.
In the event of a collision between two neodymium magnets, it can result in them getting chipped. Despite being made of metal as well as coated with a shiny nickel plating, they are not as hard as steel. In the case of a collision between two magnets, there can be a scattering of small sharp metal fragments in different directions. Protecting your eyes is essential.
Neodymium magnets are not recommended for people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets generate strong magnetic fields. As a result, they interfere with the operation of a pacemaker. This happens because such devices have a function to deactivate them in a magnetic field.
Keep neodymium magnets away from GPS and smartphones.
Strong fields generated by neodymium magnets interfere with compasses and magnetometers used in navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
You should keep neodymium magnets at a safe distance from the wallet, computer, and TV.
The strong magnetic field generated by neodymium magnets can destroy 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. Do not forget to keep neodymium magnets away from these electronic devices.
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 should not be in the vicinity children.
Neodymium magnets are not toys. Be cautious and make sure no child plays with them. They can be a significant choking hazard. If multiple magnets are swallowed, they can attract to each other through the intestinal walls, causing severe injuries, and even death.
