Rubber coated magnets provide superior hold by increasing surface friction without marking or scratching. A rubber coating makes these magnets ideal for applications such as hanging outdoor signage and mounting cameras or sensors. Corrosion is the most common reason for a failing magnet and so rubber coated magnets have an increased resistance to corrosion.
This category incorporates a range of rubber coated pot magnets in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are also a number of fridge magnets available; these brightly coloured button magnets are encased in a thermoplastic rubber.
All the magnets in this category are rubber coated Neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are far more powerful than other forms of magnet. This strength allows them to compensate for the reduced magnetism caused by the gap between magnet and the ferrous surface.
Properties of rubber coated magnets
Neodymium magnets were first available on the market in the 1980s and are vastly more powerful than previously available magnets. However Neodymium is susceptible to corrosion and corrodes over time when exposed to moisture and oxygen. This leads to the magnet failing.
All Neodymium magnets are coated in a thin outer layer to shield the magnet from the ambient environment. There are many types of coatings including Nickel, Plastic and many others. Rubber is one of the coatings available.
Rubber not only protects the inner magnets from corrosion it also provides excellent protection from impact. Neodymium is a very brittle material. Rubber coated magnets are able to withstand far more robust handling than a standard magnet would.
Rubber coated magnets are commonly used for holding applications. They are particularly useful for outdoor applications where wet and humid conditions may be encountered. However, like many materials, they will suffer from deterioration from UV exposure over time. This should be taken into consideration when placing your magnet.
Friction is another benefit these handy magnets provide as the rubber coating helps prevent the magnet from sliding out of position.
Common applications for our rubber coated magnets are suspending outdoor cameras and lighting. Heavy duty gate and door latches also utilise rubber coated neodymium magnets. Many businesses use rubber coated pot magnets to hang signage. They provide a robust hold when in use and can be easily removed when necessary.
Rubber coated pot magnets
Rubber coated pot magnets are extremely popular across a range of industries. This product consists of a number of powerful Neodymium magnets configured in a circle which is encased in a rubber disc. Each pot magnet boasts a convenience attachment point at its centre. Rubber coated pot magnets have either male or female threaded steel attachment points for hooks, eyelets or bolts.
These are fantastic for all manner of holding applications however they are particularly sought after for automotive related devices. The rubber coating enables them to be attached and detached without risk of damaging the paintwork on your car, truck or caravan.
