Choice of Materials

We can offer the complete range of magnet materials to suit different application and operating conditions.

Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets

Choosing the right magnet material

Choosing the right magnet material option for your application can be challenging. There are several magnet material options each with different performance characteristics.  As a leading magnet supplier and with our vast experience in magnetic properties we can help you make that choice a clear and simple one.

There are several material choices including Neodymium (NdFeB or Rare Earth), Alnico, Samarium Cobalt (SmCo)or Ferrite Magnets (Ceramic). In addition, there are other variations such as Electromagnets, Flexible magnets and Bonded magnets. Choosing the right material is key to project success.

Key questions to ask regarding magnet applications

When choosing a magnet material it is important to consider the following key questions:-

  • The magnetic strength required? What does the magnet have to hold, lift or attract?
  • What temperatures will the magnet be subject to?
  • Is  the magnet to be exposed to corrosive conditions or substances?
  • Is the magnet  to be exposed to demagnetising or destabilising factors?
  • What is the expected design life of the equipment where the magnet is fitted?
  • Are there any size or weight considerations for the magnet?
  • What material type and volume is being attached to?
  • Cost – is there a budget magnet unit price point to make the project viable?
