Advantages as well as disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
In addition to immense power, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose their strength (of the magnet). After approximately 10 years, their power decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are highly resistant to demagnetization by external magnetic sources,
- By applying a shiny coating of nickel, gold, or silver, the element gains 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 and the ability to adapt to specific requirements – neodymium magnets can be produced in many variants of shapes and sizes, which amplifies their universality in usage.
- Wide application in the industry of new technologies – are used in hard drives, electric drive mechanisms, medical devices or various technologically advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They are prone to breaking as they are fragile when subjected to a powerful 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 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 loss 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,
- They rust in a humid environment - during 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 can be dangerous, when accidentally ingested, which is crucial in the context of children's health. It's also worth noting that miniscule components of these products are able to complicate diagnosis in case of swallowing.
Be Cautious with Neodymium Magnets
Keep neodymium magnets away from TV, wallet, and computer HDD.
The strong magnetic field generated by neodymium magnets can damage magnetic media such as floppy disks, video tapes, HDDs, credit cards, magnetic ID cards, cassette tapes, or other devices. They can also destroy devices like video players, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Do not forget to keep neodymium magnets at a safe distance from these electronic devices.
Magnets made of neodymium are extremely delicate, they easily crack and can crumble.
In the event of a collision between two neodymium magnets, it can result in them getting chipped. They are coated with a shiny nickel plating similar to steel, but they are not as hard. At the moment of connection between the magnets, small sharp metal fragments can be propelled in various directions at high speed. Eye protection is recommended.
Neodymium magnets can demagnetize at high temperatures.
Although magnets have demonstrated their effectiveness up to 80°C or 175°F, the temperature can vary depending on the type, shape, and intended use of the specific magnet.
Neodymium magnets should not be near people with pacemakers.
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.
The magnet is coated with nickel. Therefore, exercise caution 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 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.
If you have a finger between or alternatively on the path of attracting magnets, there may be a large cut or even a fracture.
Neodymium magnets are over 10 times more powerful than ferrite magnets (the ones in speakers), and their power can shock you.
On our website, you can find information on how to use neodymium magnets. This will help you avoid injuries and prevent damage to the magnets.
Dust and powder from neodymium magnets are 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.
Never bring neodymium magnets close to a phone and GPS.
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.
It is essential to maintain neodymium magnets out of reach from youngest 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.
