Overview - Alnico Button Magnets

Ideal for holding, fixing and clamping applications

The Alnico button magnet is a two pole rounded magnet usually with a hole in the centre and a slot separating the two poles. They are small generally small in size.

For larger units with greater holding force the alnico horseshoe may be a better choice (or a pot magnet). The Alnico button magnets are supplied in natural (uncoated / unpainted) and red paint finishes and are capable of operating at temperatures of up to a maximum of +550 degrees C.  We can supply custom made Alnico magnets. You can have other colours as well if you wanted e.g. black (subject to quantities).
