Overview - Magnetic Sheet

About Magnetic Sheet

The magnetic sheet is a calendared strontium ferrite magnetic powder within a thermo-plastic binder to create a thin sheet which is then magnetised multiple-pole on one surface. It is a flexible magnetic sheet that will attract and hold onto magnetically receptive surfaces. The magnetic sheet has one magnetic face and can be put against itself to attract magnetically, but it is normally put against a ferromagnetic surface (mild steel sheet, ferrous sheet, etc). The binder is the limiting factor on the maximum operating temperature of the magnetic sheet. Above +80 degrees C the binder starts to soften the magnetic domains to cancel themselves out which results in a demagnetisation. So the maximum operating temperature is +80 degrees C.

The Magnetic Performance of Magnetic Sheet

The magnetic performance varies with the thickness of the material. The thinnest magnetic sheet (0.5mm and 0.6mm thick) has a 22 grams per square centimetre pull force rating. The thickest magnetic sheet materials (0.75mm, 0.80mm and 0.85mm thick) have a 44 grams per square centimetre pull force rating. The flexible magnetic sheet is impact resilient.

The magnetic sheet is supplied in 620mm and 1000mm (0.62m and 1m) widths in 10m, 15m and 30m roll lengths (depending on version). We also offer 0.15m x 0.15m square pieces (in 0.75mm thickness). All the flexible magnetic sheet versions have an ultra-violet (UV) coating – this assists with keeping the sheet clean (no blackening of fingers when you handle it – also assists with converting material with other materials such as vinyl backing, adhesive backing, etc). The magnetic sheet material can be easily cut with scissors, craft knife and dedicated plotter cutter. Regular shapes can be cut using inexpensive dies.

Variations of Magnetic Sheet

The flexible magnetic sheet comes with different finishes. Plain flexible magnetic sheet has no adhesive or vinyl surface – it is generally used by printing companies who wish to add their own adhesive or printed vinyl by conversion to meet their own specifications or requirements. Adhesive backed flexible magnetic sheet has a standard acrylic adhesive backing layer added to the unmagnetised surface. Such adhesive backed flexible magnetic sheet can be adhered to other materials or surfaces as necessary (e.g. making light-weight parts magnetic).

Vinyl backed flexible magnetic sheet has a vinyl layer added to the unmagnetised surface. Such magnetic sheet can then have the vinyl printed onto to create customised signage and advertising. We supply gloss white vinyl magnetic sheet, and can also supply other colours of gloss vinyl sheets if required. We may also be able to supply customised printed magnetic sheet required. We can supply gloss vinyl flexible magnetic sheets with a dry-wipe finish. We can also supply customised variants of the above and even some alternatives (within reason) such as adding a ferrous layer between the magnetic layer and the vinyl. Please contact us with your requirements.

Applications include vehicle signage, Point of Sale (PoS) displays, magnetic advertising, magnetic displays (e.g. maps), magnetic conversions, adverts, banners, etc.

"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.."
