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. For this reason, they are coated with a thin layer of nickel to increase their durability. It's worth noting that NdFeB neodymium magnets are about 13% lighter than SmCo magnets and, despite their power, are brittle, 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 many recommendations regarding the use of these magnets. It is advisable to avoid their use in acidic, basic, organic environments or in solvents, as well as in water or oil. Additionally, 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 susceptible to corrosion, especially in conditions of high humidity. Therefore, they are often covered with thin coatings, such as gold, to preserve them from environmental factors and prolong their durability. Temperatures exceeding 130°C can cause a reduction of their magnetic strength, although there are specific 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 environments, organic or solvent environments, unless they are insulated. Additionally, their use is not recommended in wet conditions, 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 strength over time - after 10 years, their strength 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 have exceptionally 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...
- Due to the option of accurate forming and adaptation to individual needs – neodymium magnets can be produced in a wide range of shapes and sizes, which amplifies their universality in usage.
- Key role in modern technologies – find application in hard drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical apparatus or various technologically 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 steel housing. 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 power of neodymium magnets. Typically, after heating above 80°C, most of them experience a permanent loss 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,
- Limited ability to create threads or complex shapes in the magnet - the use of a housing is recommended - magnetic holder
- Potential hazard to health from tiny fragments of magnets pose a threat, in case of ingestion, which is particularly important in the aspect of protecting young children. Furthermore, small elements of these products can complicate diagnosis after entering the body.
Caution with Neodymium Magnets
You should keep neodymium magnets at a safe distance from the wallet, computer, and TV.
Neodymium magnets produce strong magnetic fields that can destroy magnetic media such as floppy disks, video tapes, HDDs, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, etc. devices. They can also damage videos, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
Neodymium magnets are the strongest, most remarkable magnets on earth, and the surprising force between them can surprise you at first.
To handle 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.
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 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.
Magnets will attract each other within a distance of several to around 10 cm from each other. Remember not to put fingers between magnets or in their path when they attract. Depending on how huge the neodymium magnets are, they can lead to a cut or a fracture.
Neodymium magnetic are delicate and can easily crack as well as get damaged.
Neodymium magnetic are delicate and will shatter if allowed to collide with each other, even from a distance of a few centimeters. Despite being made of metal as well as coated with a shiny nickel plating, they are not as hard as steel. At the moment of collision between the magnets, small sharp metal fragments can be propelled in various directions at high speed. Eye protection is recommended.
Keep neodymium magnets as far away as possible 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.
People with pacemakers are advised to avoid neodymium magnets.
Neodymium magnets produce strong magnetic fields that can interfere 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 demagnetize at high temperatures.
Whilst Neodymium magnets can demagnetize 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. 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.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are highly flammable.
Avoid drilling or mechanical processing of neodymium magnets. Once crushed into fine powder or dust, this material becomes highly flammable.
