Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
Moreover, although neodymium is a component of the strongest magnets, they are prone to corrosion in humid environments. Therefore, they are coated with a thin layer of epoxy 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 in solvents, as well as in water or oil. Furthermore, they can damage 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 humid conditions. Therefore, they are often coated with coatings, such as nickel, to protect them from external factors and prolong their durability. Temperatures exceeding 130°C can result in a loss of their magnetic properties, although there are particular types of neodymium magnets that can withstand temperatures up to 230°C.
As for risks, 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 water, oil, or in an environment containing hydrogen, as they may lose their magnetic properties.
Advantages as well as disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose power over time. After 10 years, their strength decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are exceptionally resistant to demagnetization caused by an external magnetic field,
- In other words, thanks to the shiny coating of nickel, gold, or silver, the element acquires 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...
- Due to the option of accurate forming or adaptation to individual needs – 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 – are used in computer drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical devices and very highly developed apparatuses.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They can break 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,
- High temperatures can reduce the power of neodymium magnets. Typically, after heating above 80°C, most of them experience a permanent reduction in strength (although it is dependent on the shape 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,
- 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,
- Limited ability to create threads or complex shapes in the magnet - the use of a housing is recommended - magnetic holder
- Health risk to health from tiny fragments of magnets are risky, in case of ingestion, which is crucial in the context of child safety. Furthermore, tiny parts of these products have the potential to be problematic in medical diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Exercise Caution with Neodymium Magnets
Neodymium magnets are primarily characterized by their significant internal force. They attract to each other, and any object that comes in their way will be affected.
If have a finger between or alternatively on the path of attracting magnets, there may be a severe cut or even a fracture.
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.
The magnet is coated with nickel - be careful 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.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
In certain circumstances, Neodymium magnets can lose their magnetism when subjected to high temperatures.
Neodymium magnets are the strongest magnets ever invented. Their strength can surprise you.
Familiarize yourself with our information to correctly handle these magnets and avoid significant swellings to your body and prevent damage to the magnets.
Neodymium magnetic are highly susceptible to damage, leading to shattering.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by considerable fragility. 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 collision between the magnets, small metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are 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.
It is important to keep neodymium magnets away from children.
Not all neodymium magnets are toys, so do not let children play with them. In the case of small magnets, they can be swallowed and cause choking. In such cases, the only solution is to undergo surgery to remove the magnets, and otherwise, it can even lead to death.
Never bring neodymium magnets close to a phone and GPS.
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 maintain neodymium magnets at a safe distance 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.
