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.
