Dura Magnetics offers both cast and sintererd Alnico Magnets in a variety of grades, including Alnico 2, Alnico 5, Alnico 5-7, and Alnico 8. Our large selection of available Alnico magnetic alloys helps achieve the best balance of cost, magnetic performance, and operational temperature resistance for your specific application.
Alnico magnets exhibit a high degree of corrosion resistance and are typically employed in applications with no coatings or plating.
Alnico magnets offer the best temperature characteristics of any standard production magnet material available. Alnico magnets can be used for continuous duty applications where temperature extremes up to 930°F (500°C) can be expected.
The lower coercive force of Alnico makes magnetizing a simple matter in most cases. In order to optimize the performance of Alnico magnets, it is advisable to magnetize the magnet after assembly with other circuit components.
Alnico magnets manufactured by Dura Magnetics are compliant with Intellectual Property Rights, Environmental Restrictions, and Conflict Mineral usage.
Alnico Magnets are very strong and brittle, requiring appropriate handling and packing to ensure safety and prevent damage.
Alnico Magnets are typically manufactured by a powdered metallurgical process utilizing rigid steel or rubber molds.
