Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets
Neodymium (neo) magnets, which are part of the rare earth magnet family, are popular for their extreme strength in a compact size and weight, and for their high coercive force (they are permanently magnetized for use in temperatures below 590°F). Neo Magnets are the strongest magnets in the world – the higher the grade, the stronger the pull force of the magnet. Neodymium magnets are available for sale in a variety of shapes, sizes, and grades.
Neodymium magnets are brittle and should be handled with extreme care to avoid personal injury and damage to the magnets. Take care to avoid pinching your fingers between two or more neo magnets, and do not allow them to “jump” toward attracting magnets. These magnets are NOT for children.
