Advantages as well as disadvantages of neodymium magnets NdFeB.
Apart from immense strength, neodymium magnets have the following advantages:
- They do not lose their power (of the magnet). After approximately 10 years, their strength decreases by only ~1% (theoretically),
- They are exceptionally resistant to demagnetization caused by an external magnetic field,
- By applying a shiny coating of nickel, gold, or silver, the element gains an aesthetic appearance,
- They have very 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...
- The ability for precise shaping or customization to specific needs – 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 utilized in HDD drives, electric motors, medical devices or very modern machines.
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,
- They lose strength at high temperatures. Most neodymium magnets experience permanent loss of strength when heated above 80°C (depending on the shape and height). However, we also offer special magnets with high temperature resistance, up to 230°C,
- 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 or a magnetic holder is recommended due to the limited possibilities of manufacturing threads or complex shapes in the magnet
- Health risk to health from tiny fragments of magnets pose a threat, if swallowed, which is particularly important in the context of children's health. Furthermore, miniscule components of these devices have the potential to complicate diagnosis after entering the body.
Exercise Caution with Neodymium Magnets
Neodymium magnets are extremely delicate, they easily break and can crumble.
In the event of a collision between two neodymium magnets, it can result in them getting chipped. 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 connection between the magnets, tiny sharp metal pieces can be propelled in various directions at high speed. Eye protection is recommended.
You should maintain neodymium magnets at a safe distance from the wallet, computer, and TV.
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, etc. devices. They can also destroy devices like video players, televisions, CRT computer monitors. Remember not to place neodymium magnets close to these electronic devices.
Keep neodymium magnets away 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.
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 careless connecting to each other. You can't move them to each other. At a distance less than 10 cm you should have them extremely firmly.
Comparing neodymium magnets to ferrite magnets (found in speakers), they are 10 times stronger, and their power can shock you.
Familiarize yourself with our information to properly handle these magnets and avoid significant swellings to your body and prevent disruption to the magnets.
Neodymium magnets can become demagnetized at high temperatures.
While 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.
The magnet coating contains nickel, so be cautious 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.
Do not give neodymium magnets to children.
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.
Neodymium magnets should not be near people with pacemakers.
Neodymium magnets generate strong magnetic fields. As a result, they interfere with the operation of a pacemaker. This happens because such devices have a function to deactivate them in a magnetic field.
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.
