Features & Characteristics of Ceramic Magnets 

  • What are the main characteristics for ceramic magnets? Ceramic magnets are medium in magnetic strength, and can be used at fairly high temperatures. They are low cost, making them ideal for applications such as automotive sensors, magnetic separators, craft projects, badge holders, latches, display boards, science projects, toys, games & more. (top)
  • What grades & shapes are available for ceramic magnets? Grades 5 (most commonly used) through 8 are available in disc, block (block) & ring shapes, and can be custom manufactured to meet your specialty requirements(top)
  • What are the temperature constraints for ceramic magnets? Ceramic magnets can be used at fairly high temperatures, although their magnetic properties drop with temperature. At 175°C (350° F), approximately 75% of their room temperature magnetic properties are retained. (top)
  • How are magnets rated? Magnets are typically rated by their residual induction, coercive force & maximum energy product. Click here for more details (section 4.0). This refers to the maximum strength that the magnetic material can be magnetized to. (top)
  • What are some common applications for ceramic magnets? Common applications for ceramic magnets include raft projects, refrigerator magnets, badge holders, latches, display boards, loudspeakers, security systems, motors, generators & alternators, lifting magnets, eddy current devices, brakes, clamps, switches & relays, sweeper magnets, science projects, toys, games, motors, magnetic couplings, POP displays, advertising giveaways, promotional items, novelties & more. (top)
  • Are there machining constraints for ceramic magnets? Ceramic magnets require special machining techniques, and should be machined in an “un-magnetized” state. We are fully equipped to machine these materials to your specifications, just let us know what you are looking for by sending us a special request(top) 
  • Are surface treatments required for ceramic magnets? Ceramic magnets do not need to be protected for surface rust. A thin film of magnet powder on the surface is common. (top) 
  • What are some bonding applications for ceramic magnets? Ceramic magnets are often assembled into products using "superglues" such as Loctite 325 or other epoxies. Please always ensure that bonding surfaces are clean and dry prior to bonding. (top) 
  • What safety precautions should be taken into consideration when working with ceramic magnets? Ceramic Magnets are hard & brittle, and they can chip or break if dropped or snapped together, so please take special care when handling these magnets! (top)
