Product Description

When idly entertaining one’s self with these magnets, they sometimes seem to have a mind of their own, probably because of the unique shape relative to their axis of magnetization. Most magnets have no trouble ‘deciding’ which resting position they enjoy most, and quickly adopt it. These magnets, however, seem more indecisive.

They can be used where depth is desired and stacking of smaller magnets is not. This is also the type of magnet used unwisely as jewellery in specific youtube videos. It should be noted that the larger rod magnets have inconsistently formed ends, so they stack at odd angles relative to each other.

Nickel Plating: The standard coating for neodymium magnets is nickel. A coating is necessary because the combination of metals that makes up Neodymium magnets corrodes quickly when exposed to air. Some of our magnets are triple coated with Nickel Copper Nickel (NiCuNi) for extra durability.

NdFeB: This specification describes the composition of the magnet, Neodymium-Iron-Boron, to differentiate between magnet types and facilitate further research if necessary.

Grade: The N rating of a magnet is the way those who deal with magnets on a regular basis denote the strength of a particular magnetic material regardless of its shape. The pull force takes into account the geometry of the magnet as well

Maximum Operating Temperature: NdFeB magnets begin to act unpredictably at temperatures above 80°C (176°F). They will lose their (permanent) magnetic properties at around 200°C.
