Neodymium magnets are strong permanent magnets made of an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron. As part of the rare earth magnet family, they have the highest magnetic properties of all permanent magnets. Due to their high magnetic strength and relatively low cost, neodymium magnets are the preferred choice for many consumer, commercial, industrial and technical applications.

What should be considered when handling neodymium magnets?

In general, you should try to follow these 5-tips when handling neodymium magnets.

Always wear goggles when handling large, strong magnets.

Always wear protective gloves when handling large, strong magnets.

Neodymium magnets are not toys for children. The magnets are very strong!

Keep neodymium magnets at least 25cm away from electronic devices.

Keep neodymium magnets at a very safe distance from people with pacemakers or implantable heart defibrillators.

How do I transport neodymium magnets safely?

In case you do not know yet, magnets cannot be shipped in envelopes or plastic bags like other goods. And you certainly can't put them in a mailbox and expect everything to be shipped as usual.

If you put it in a mailbox, it simply sticks to the inside of the mailbox because they are made of steel!

When shipping strong neodymium magnets, you need to pack them so that they do not stick to objects or surfaces made of steel.

This can be achieved by using cartons and much soft packaging. The main purpose is to keep the magnet as far away from steel as possible while reducing the magnetic force.

You can also use a so-called "gatekeeper". A holder is a piece of metal that closes the magnetic circuit. You simply connect the metal to the two poles of the magnet that will contain the magnetic field. This is a very effective way to reduce the magnetic force of the magnet during transport.

How to use neodymium magnets correctly?

1. Do not mix magnets and pacemakers

Neodymium magnets can affect pacemakers and defibrillators. For example, the pacemaker can enter test mode and cause the patient to become ill. In addition, the defibrillator may no longer work. Therefore, it is important that you keep such devices away from magnets. You should also advise others to do the same.

2. Heavy objects

Excessive weight and/or defects can cause objects to detach from the magnet. Falling heavy objects from a great height can be very dangerous and lead to serious accidents.

You can't always rely on the adhesive force of neodymium magnets to 100%. The specified force is usually tested under perfect conditions without interference or defects.

3. Metal break

Neodymium magnets made of neodymium are very fragile and sometimes cause the magnet to break and/or splinter into many parts. These parts can be scattered up to several meters.
