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 thin layer of silver to protect them from corrosion. It's worth noting that NdFeB neodymium magnets are about 13% lighter than SmCo magnets and, despite their power, easily break, which requires special caution 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. It is advisable to avoid their use 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 always certain.
In terms of properties in different environments, neodymium magnets are sensitive to corrosion, especially in conditions of high humidity. Therefore, they are often covered with thin coatings, such as gold, to protect them from external factors and extend their lifespan. High temperatures exceeding 130°C can result in a loss of their magnetic properties, although there are specific types of neodymium magnets that can tolerate temperatures up to 230°C.
As for risks, 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.
In addition to immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose strength over time - 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 high thermal resistance, allowing them to operate at temperatures up to 230°C and above...
- The ability for precise shaping and customization to specific needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in a wide range of shapes and sizes, which expands the range of their possible uses.
- Key role in the industry of new technologies – are used in HDD drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical equipment or other modern machines.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They are prone to breaking as they are extremely fragile when subjected to a powerful impact. If the magnets are exposed to impacts, it is suggested 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 strength 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 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,
- Due to their susceptibility to corrosion in a humid environment, we suggest using waterproof magnets made of rubber, plastic, or other moisture-resistant materials when using them outdoors,
- 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 can be dangerous, in case of ingestion, which becomes significant in the aspect of protecting young children. Furthermore, small elements of these devices are able to complicate diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Handle Neodymium Magnets Carefully
Avoid contact with neodymium magnets if you have a nickel 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.
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.
Keep neodymium magnets away from GPS and smartphones.
Neodymium magnets produce intense magnetic fields that interfere with magnetometers and compasses used in navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
Neodymium magnets are particularly delicate, resulting in damage.
Magnets made of neodymium are extremely delicate, and by joining them in an uncontrolled manner, they will crumble. 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, sharp metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Although magnets have shown to retain their effectiveness up to 80°C or 175°F, this temperature may vary depending on the type of material, shape, and intended use of the magnet.
Keep neodymium magnets away from the wallet, computer, and TV.
Strong 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. They can also damage televisions, VCRs, computer monitors, and CRT displays. You should especially avoid placing neodymium magnets near electronic devices.
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. 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.
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.
Neodymium magnets will bounce and clash together within a distance of several to around 10 cm from each other.
Do not give neodymium magnets to children.
Neodymium magnets are not toys. Do not allow children to play 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 significant injuries, and even death.
Neodymium magnets are the most powerful magnets ever created, and their strength can shock you.
