  • Before Other Shapes are Made

    Particularly within the commercial market, magnets are a big deal. They are used to decorate our refrigerators, hang up photos and paintings without damaging the paint or the texture on our walls as well as being incorporated into a variety of electronic devices and related mechanisms that the average public utilizes on a daily basis. But before the shapes that we utilize can be shaped, sheet magnets must be produced and then cut down to the correct size. Just like metal is produced in sheets and then manufactured with die...

  • Making Flexible Magnets

    Ever wonder how flat magnetic sheets are made? I've always wondered how magnets are placed into flat, flexible sheets that can be cut with scissors and formed into a variety of shapes. Although these magnets are not as strong as many of the purer magnets, they still provide a strong enough bond for lightweight uses, such as for hanging pictures on a magnetic wall or picking up loose metal fillings. Flat magnetic sheets are made by mixing ferrite powder and rubber polymer resin. These two ingredients are then calendered and...

  • Who Discovered the First Magnetic Assembly?

    Often the question we ask when inquiring about the history of something is who invented it? For most objects, this is an easy thing to answer. You can look in history books and find out who invented the first light bulb, the first car, the first plane, yet some objects aren't necessarily invented but rather they are discovered. For example, it would be hard to say that someone invented magnets, since they are already a naturally occurring object in the earth. The full potential and power of magnets however was...

  • Magnetic mirrors could enhance solar cell efficiency

    October 17, 2014 While mirrors are typically used to get ready in the morning, scientists have developed a mirror that has more high-tech applications, which could eventually lead to improvements in future solar technology. According to a report in the The Optical Society's journal Optica, the researchers were able to use the magnetic properties of a metamaterial to perform the remarkable feat of reflecting infrared light. These magnetic mirrors could prove useful in retaining the electrical signature of light that touches the mirror due to the object's nanoscale...

  • 5 DIY repair jobs using magnets

    With big investments like a home or car on the line, owners have to be careful about maintaining the look and feel of their most prized possessions. As you take on repair projects around the house, you may want to save money by doing renovation projects yourself or enlisting the help of someone knowledgeable about repairs. Although you may think you have all the tools you need, you may be missing one of the most important ones: powerful magnets.   Here are five DIY repair jobs that...

Industry Information

Sheet Magnets

Sheet magnets are large, flat magnets that can be used over large surface areas. A magnet is roughly defined as an object that is surrounded by a magnetic field and that has the property of attracting either iron or steel, and it does not matter if that property is natural or induced. There are a wide range of industries that benefit from the utilization of sheet magnets.

Automotive and consumer industries use sheet magnets, which are fairly flexible magnets, primarily for signage, although there are many other applications. Sold in bulk rolls or cut sheets, sheet magnets consist of two sides, one which is magnetized (the strong side) and the other which is not (the weak side). Since flexible magnets are actually a plastic polymer composite, the lifespan and magnetic force of magnetic sheets are much lower than in other non-polymer magnetic composites. As a result, sheet magnets are a flexible ferrite-plastic composite which is extruded into magnetic sheets onto which adhesive and/or print is applied. These sheets are then cut to custom shapes and sizes and used for a variety of applications, including refrigerator magnets and displays, magnetic calendars, magnetic business cards, automobile signs and advertisements and many others.

Sheet magnets are available in a wide range of widths, thicknesses and sizes; thicker magnetic sheets have greater magnetic force, since greater magnetic force is contained in greater mass. Due to their flexibility and flat surface, sheet magnets are ideal for advertising and other applications which require large surface areas to hold weak magnetic force. As a polymer composite, sheet magnets are made of the same material as injection molded and extruded magnets, which are other types of flexible magnets. Injection molded and extruded magnets can be formed, just like plastic, into a virtually limitless range of shapes; the cost of magnetic polymer materials and magnetic polymer extrusions are high, however, and magnetic polymer products have relatively low magnetic force. For this reason sheet magnets, which are more easily extruded than magnetic polymer shapes, are far more cost effective than any other type of magnet and are by far the most common in consumer industries. To enhance a sheet magnet's magnetic properties and lifespan, sheet magnets are often laminated on the weak side with a top-coat to keep magnetic properties from seeping out. The most typical top-coat is vinyl, which is often glossed, colored or printed. Rubber and acrylic are sometimes used to coat magnetic sheets as well.
