A: We offer a very wide variety of magnet thicknesses to suit everyone’s needs. Whether you are just looking for a cheap solution for a fridge magnet or a heavy duty magnet for shelving, we’ll have it!

Some of our available thicknesses and what they are usually used for:

  • 0.012″ – will hold itself to the fridge but nothing else
    Usually used for fridge magnets like calendars and business cards.
  • 0.014″ – “Magnetic Paper” will hold itself and typical shopping list (1 sheet)
    Usually used for fridge magnets like calendars and business cards
    .
  • 0.015″ – will hold itself plus 1 – 2 pieces of paper
    Usually used for fridge magnets like calendars and business cards.
  • 0.020″ – will hold itself plus 1 – 4 pieces of paper
    Usually used for fridge magnets like calendars, business cards and signage.
  • 0.030″ – will hold itself plus a lot more
    Usually used for heavy-duty applications like vehicle signage and wearhouse labels.

As you might see with this pattern that the thicker the magnet, the stronger they are. We carry up to 0.080” thickness as well as some permanent magnets (ceramic and neodynium).

All You Need to Know About Flexible Magnets

 

Magnetic strips and magnetic rolls have countless industrial and commercial applications. They are part of the flexible magnet family which also includes rolls.  Despite having different configurations, one element that sets these materials in a class of their own is their magnetic property. In this blog, we take a closer look at magnets and answer some frequently asked questions.

What are flexible magnets?

Flexible magnets are designed for applications that don’t require too much magnetic strength. However, they feature multiple magnetization patterns to give them the much-needed holding power. They can be twisted, coiled, bent, cut, printed, and easily adhered to metallic surfaces. Magnetic sheets, strips, and rolls can be cut or scored according to your specifications.

What is magnetism?

The term magnetism pertains to the strength of attraction or repulsion that occurs between objects and substances composed of materials such as iron, cobalt, steel, and nickel. It is the motion of electric charges that results in the force of magnetism. Two magnets will attract at opposite poles and repel at similar poles.

Can a magnet lose its magnetism?

Flexible magnets such as magnetic strips and magnetic rolls lose a negligible amount of their magnetism over time. The loss can only be significant if you store them close to high temperatures, power lines, or other magnets. Following basic care tips is enough to ensure that your magnetic strips or rolls serve their purpose for extended periods.

What can flexible magnets do?

Flexible magnets enjoy many common applications in the home and across different industries. Magnetic strips and rolls are used in toys, refrigerator displays, car signs, POP displays, games, magnetic signs, business cards, message boards, shelve labels, educational products, and arts and crafts, among other consumer and commercial applications. Printable magnetic strips are used in warehouses, classrooms, trade shows, shipping rooms, POP displays, labs, and office and visual aids, among other labelling applications.
