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?

Without proper design considerations, your magnet will fail. High temperatures, other magnetic fields and aggressive environments can cause magnets to fail.
