Magnets With Adhesive Backing – Possibly Your Best Bet to Reduce Fastener and Fabrication Costs


Rare-earth Neodymium magnets can have an attractive pull force of up to 1,000 times the weight of the magnet. This property allows engineers to specify a particularly small magnet for a stay-in-place operation. It can also make it difficult to find an appropriate mechanical fastener (screw / bolt etc.) to hold that small magnet in place. Enter Dura’s adhesive-backed Neodymium magnet discs. Because these magnets are designed with the fastener “built-in,” they give design engineers flexibility and cost savings by allowing production / assembly staff to apply the magnets instantly to a work piece without the need for another component fastener.

Did You Know?

When designing near the limits of a magnet’s max operating temperature, knowing your magnet’s load line is extremely important.
