Neodymium magnets are prone to rusting if they are exposed to moisture or high humidity environments. The rate at which neodymium magnets will rust will depend on a number of factors, including the humidity level, the temperature, and the presence of corrosive agents.
In general, neodymium magnets will rust more quickly in humid environments or if they are exposed to corrosive agents, such as saltwater or acidic substances. The rusting process can also be accelerated by high temperatures, which can cause the magnet to dry out and become more susceptible to corrosion.
To prevent neodymium magnets from rusting, it is important to store them in a dry place and to protect them from moisture as much as possible. If the magnets do get wet, it is important to dry them off as soon as possible to prevent rust from forming.
Corrosion Resistant Coatings
In some cases, it may be necessary to use neodymium magnets with a corrosion resistant coating such as black epoxy or plastic. This can be especially important in high humidity environments and outdoor applications, or if the magnets will be exposed to corrosive agents. For applications which require the magnets to be washed, we have sewing magnets encased in PVC which protects the magnet from water damage.
Choosing the Right Coating
It can be difficult to select the best coating for your specific application due to the numerous factors that can impact a magnet's durability and performance. You can always get in touch with our magnet experts if you have any questions or want assistance selecting the right coating or magnet. We will be delighted to assist you in making the best choice for your needs.
I design and make refrigerator magnets for extra money. The magnets work great and provide an inexpensive source.
These magnets work great for my project. Will use this company again. Communication is top notch as well as product and speed of delivery.
modular printed models
Just what I was looking for!
have used you before--fast service--great prices--will use you again
Hang LED lights on metal ceiling in garage. Worked great.
To activate a magnetic sensor
Used for stopping slot darg cars. They work great.
Strongest magnet ever fast shipping
backup for plug welding holes
Powerful and thin !
Great for adhering metal art to fridge or other metal surfaces.
These 1/4 x 1/4 Inch Neodymium Rare Earth Cylinder Magnets N52 were exactly what I needed and came exactly as described. Also, were delivered on time as promised. Better than that totalElement warned me at the time of purchase, I needed to be careful with them because they could chip if not handle with care. I thought that was very helpful information most companies would have just neglected to tell their customers. Thank you totalElement for the great product and even better service!
Very strong mini magnet. Works very well and you do not have to go very deep into the piece.
The biomagnetic health magnetics does help speed up the healing process.
These were the perfect diameter & thickness for my application. The adhesive backing is strong enough to affix to my objects. Yet, they do not pull apart when removing from the surface relative to the pull strength. Good Magnets. Just a few more of many of that I’ve procured through Total Element, thank you!
