Temperature Effects

Ceramic magnets are susceptible to demagnetization when exposed to temperature extremes. There are grades which have better resistance to high and low temperatures, but several factors will dictate the performance of a ferrite magnet.

Magnetization Options

Although most commercial magnets are anistropic, which means they have a preferred direction of magnetization, various pole configurations can be achieved without conflicting with a Ceramic magnet’s orientation.

DFARS & ITAR Compliance

DFARS Compliance

Limited availability of Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) compliant material can make small magnet production runs costly. However, we stock various grades at our U.S. facility, enabling us to provide cost-effective, DFARS-compliant magnets for all customers if needed, regardless of project size or requirements.

ITAR Compliance

We are also registered and compliant with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). This qualifies us to work with items listed on the United States Munitions List (USML). We are also ITAR registered with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).
