What's in the package:
7x7x3mm N48 grade neodymium disk magnets (various pack sizes available)
Safety Leaflet printed on the reverse of the VAT invoice.
WARNING: Neodymium magnets are unsuitable for children under 8.
These magnets are magnetised on both sides so that one 6mm x 6mm face is north and the other is south. Your chosen adhesive can be put on either side and it will hold equally as well.
Neodymium (chemical symbol Nd) is element 60 on the periodic table. It is a rare earth metal and forms one of the Lanthanides series. When added to Iron (Fe) and Boron (B) (chemical formula Nd14Fe21B) the resultant magnets are the strongest magnets currently available. Neodymium magnets are sometimes known as Neo, Neod or NIB magnets.
Neodymium magnets have many varied uses but care must be taken because they are brittle and do not flex at all. If you attempt to flex a neodymium magnet, it will, at best, snap in half.
Each magnet weighs 1.08g and has a calculated pull of 3.6lb / 58oz / 1631g. This is caulcated using a mathematical formula and is the theoretical maximum hold between one magnet sitting directly on top of a horizontal mild steel plate. It does not take account of manufacturing tolerances, plating, plating thickness or variances in a mild steel plate.
The calculated pull provides an approximate vertical hold of 0.72lb / 11.6oz / 326g. This is the amount that each magnet will hold on a vertical steel surface such as a fridge (including the weight of the magnet). The vertical hold is is based upon the calculated pull and is for guidance only and does not take account of paint thickness, plasticised surfaces, movement and vibration
Neodymium magnets are safe for use below 80C/176F. They are coated with 3 layers of plating, Nickel, then Copper, and a second final Nickel layer. This is to protect the iron within the magnet however, they should not be used in a damp environment.
These magnets are ideal for:
homemade fridge magnets
magnetising wargame models
and for a huge range of other craft projects.

Please note that our products often appear to be 'overpacked'.

When shipping to destinations outside the UK mainland, all our packages will comply with the IATA regulations for the safe transportation of magnets by air.

Q:Can I pay by Money Order?
A:We only accept PayPal.
Q:How long will it take to get my item - Europe and Rest of World addresses?
A:The aim is for standard airmail to be delivered in 3-10 working days but this is not guaranteed. Please note that items sent outside the European Union can be delayed because of customs clearance.
Q:How do I change my shipping/posting address?
A:We will only ship or post to the address provided to us by PayPal as the shipping address. If you need to change this, we will refund your payment, you will then need to amend the address and make a new payment.
Q:Do you combine shipping/postage?
A:For international post, yes we do but we base all our prices on the combined weight of all your items. If you wish to have a combined invoice, please ask for one BEFORE you make your payment.
Q:How much is the Shipping and Handling Charge?
A:We charge the cost of the postage plus a very small contribution of £0.15 towards the packaging materials plus VAT (Value Added Tax) which we are legally required to charge.
Q:Are your magnets permanent or will they loose strength?
A:ALL the magnets we sell are permanent and do not require electricity to work. Ferrite magnets are susceptible to mechanical wear (knocks or dropping) and will loose magnetism as a result. Neodymium magnets loose 2% of their magnetism in the first 20 years after being magnetised and NONE after that.
Q:Can I put two pieces of flexible magnetic strip together?
A:Yes, but they are magnetised N-S-N-S-N across the width of the strip. They will, therefore, be offset and will not match up property. We do stock the alternate form which is magnetised S-N-S-N-S if you want the two pieces to match exactly. Please let us know how many metres of each you require. NOTE: no orders less than 1m of each form.
