Magnetic Extrusion

Magnetic extrusion for holding nameplates and signage

  • Strontium ferrite material in a thermo-plastic binder.
  • Maximum operating temperature 80°C.
  • Forms a strong bond when paired with itself.
  • Magnetic on 1 face.
  • Ideal for washdown areas

Overview - Magnetic Extrusion

The magnetic extrusion is a strontium ferrite magnetic powder within a thermo-plastic binder that is extruded through a die to create a specific profile which is then magnetised multiple-pole on one surface. The magnetic extrusion has one magnetic face and can be put against itself as pairs to magnetically attract to itself (self-mating). The maximum operating temperature of the magnetic extrusion is +80 degrees C – above this temperature the binder starts to soften causing the magnetism to fail as it de-magnetises as the magnetic domains re-align to cancel themselves out.

Pull Force Rating of Magnetic Extrusion

The pull force rating of the magnetic extrusion is 65 grams per square centimetre. The more area is used, the more clamping force potential there is. Magnetic extrusion works best when in direct contact with itself or in direct contact with a magnetically receptive surface (such as the steel tape (LINK), mild steel surfaces, magnetic stainless surfaces and other ferromagnetic surfaces).

One version is adhesive backed (EM888-R pairs – 150mm lengths). The other versions (including the 2m long EM888-R) are without an adhesive backing (plain finish). It is possible for us to produce customised extruded profiles of lengths to suit. If you require such custom produced magnetic extrusion please contact us for prices.

"We were delighted with the service provided by Eclipse Magnetics; from the initial site survey through to delivery."

Adrian Seeley, Production Supervisor at AB MAURI UK & Ireland

"I cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped our operation, the magnetic filtration unit has been a real problem solver it has surpassed all our expectations. Its cured a 30 year plague!"

Maintenance Manager at EXL Tube (Steel Ventures)

"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."

John Smith, MMTCI

"Magnetic filtration has dramatically cleaned up our fluids and improved the surface finish we can offer. It extracts around 50Kg per day of ferrous waste."

Facilities Manager, Milacron Machines (Sub-Contract Machining)

"We chose Eclipse Magnetics to supply our housed grid because they are a respected and well-established brand. They offered us a very competitive price, and the process of ordering and installation was straightforward and reliable."

Pat Richards, Chief Engineer at Simpsons Malt

“We are delighted with the Automag installation; it’s solved all the problems we were having previously with downtime and maintenance costs. The filter means that we are able to use recycled water, which is saving us £1000 per week!”

Kenneth McRae, Principle Engineer at Vallourec

"Here at Qualflow, we base our business on a philosophy of make the product simple to use, reliable and cost-effective. Eclipse Magnetics’ neodymium magnets offer the strongest magnetic performance, and are nickel plated, making them a cost effective.."

Justin Lawler Ph.D. MBA, Chief Technology Officer at Qualflow Systems Ltd

"The Ultralift Plus magnetic lifter from Eclipse Magnetics is the perfect solution for the pick-up and transportation of the ultrasonic calibration blocks in our facility"

John Crossley, NDT Technology Lead at the Nuclear AMRC

"The result is an aesthetically pleasing system, which is effective in trapping metal contaminants and is easy to clean..."
