The Power and Durability of Magnets: Key Features and Benefits

The Power and Durability of Magnets: Key Features and Benefits

Magnets have been used for centuries in various applications, and some are exceptionally strong, with a tensile force of up to 600 Kg/N such as those used on our Magnetic Track Safety Solutions. In this article, we will discuss the key features and benefits of these powerful magnets, as well as their durability, retention of magnetism, storage, and other factors.

Powerful Magnetic Field

One of the key features of strong magnets is their ability to generate a powerful magnetic field, making them ideal for use in applications that require a high level of holding or lifting force, such as industrial machinery, construction, and automotive industries. The strong magnetic force can also be useful in various scientific experiments, research, and other technical fields.

Extremely Durable

Another benefit of these magnets is their durability. They are typically made from high-quality materials, such as neodymium, iron, and boron, which make them highly resistant to corrosion, temperature fluctuations, and other forms of wear and tear. This means they can maintain their magnetic strength over a long period, which is essential for applications requiring consistent performance.

Retention of Magnetism

Retention of magnetism is another important factor to consider when using strong magnets. These magnets have a high coercivity, meaning they can maintain their magnetism even when exposed to external magnetic fields or heat. This is important for applications requiring a stable and reliable magnetic force, such as medical equipment or magnetic levitation devices.

Storage and Packaging

Storage is also a critical factor to consider when using strong magnets. These magnets are highly magnetic, meaning they can attract or repel other objects and potentially cause damage or injury. It is important to store them in a safe and secure location, away from other magnetic objects, and in a way that minimises the risk of damage or injury.

When storing strong magnets, it is also essential to consider the packaging. Most manufacturers provide their magnets in protective packagings, such as a plastic or foam box, to prevent damage during shipping or handling. It is essential to keep the magnets in their original packaging or a similar protective container to avoid damage or loss of magnetism.

Highly Customisable

In addition to their strength and durability, strong magnets also offer other benefits. For example, they can be customised to fit specific applications or requirements, such as size, shape, and magnetic strength. This makes them highly versatile and adaptable to various industries and fields.

Safety Precautions

However, it is essential to use caution when handling strong magnets. They can cause injury if not handled properly, such as pinching fingers. It is essential to follow proper safety procedures and guidelines when handling and using these magnets, such as wearing protective gear, using caution when handling, and keeping them out of reach of children and animals.


Strong magnets with a tensile force of up to 600 Kg/N offer exceptional strength and durability, making them ideal for various industrial, scientific, and technical applications. They can maintain their magnetism over a long period, which is essential for applications requiring consistent performance. However, it is crucial to use caution when handling these magnets and follow proper safety procedures to avoid injury or damage. With the right precautions and care, these magnets can provide a powerful and reliable magnetic force for years.
