Magnetic properties of the material N38
Physical properties of sintered neodymium magnets Nd2Fe14B
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 approximately 10 years, their power 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,
- Thanks to their high temperature resistance, they can operate (depending on the shape) even at temperatures up to 230°C and above...
- Thanks to the flexibility in shaping or the ability to adapt to specific requirements – neodymium magnets can be produced in various forms and dimensions, which amplifies their universality in usage.
- Significant importance in the industry of new technologies – are used in hard drives, electric motors, medical apparatus and various technologically advanced devices.
Disadvantages of neodymium magnets:
- They can break 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,
- Magnets lose their strength 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 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,
- Magnets exposed to a humid environment can corrode. Therefore, when using them outdoors, we recommend 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 to health from tiny fragments of magnets pose a threat, in case of ingestion, which becomes significant in the context of children's health. Additionally, small elements of these devices are able to be problematic in medical diagnosis after entering the body.
Exercise Caution with Neodymium Magnets
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 are among the strongest magnets on Earth. The surprising force they generate between each other can surprise you.
Make sure to review all the information we have provided. This will help you avoid harm to your body and damage to the magnets.
Keep neodymium magnets away from people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets produce strong magnetic fields that can interfere 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.
It is crucial not to allow the magnets to pinch together uncontrollably or place your fingers in their path as they attract to each other.
Magnets may crack or alternatively crumble with uncontrolled connecting to each other. Remember not to move them to each other or hold them firmly in hands at a distance less than 10 cm.
Keep neodymium magnets away 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 damage videos, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Do not forget to keep neodymium magnets away from these electronic devices.
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.
Never bring neodymium magnets close to a phone and GPS.
Magnetic fields generated by neodymium magnets interfere with compasses and magnetometers used in navigation, as well as internal compasses of smartphones and GPS devices.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
Despite the general resilience of magnets, their ability to retain their magnetic strength can be influenced by factors like the type of material used, the magnet's shape, and the intended purpose for which it is employed.
It is essential to maintain neodymium magnets away from youngest children.
Not all neodymium magnets are toys, so do not let children play with them. In such a situation, surgery is necessary to remove them. In the worst case scenario, it can result in death.
Neodymium magnetic are especially delicate, resulting in damage.
Neodymium magnets are characterized by significant 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 connection between the magnets, small metal fragments can be dispersed in different directions.
