The material goes through a calendering process and is formed into sheeting or strip. It can then be easily machined to size and magnetized. High-energy flexible magnet are anisotropic (oriented), whereas the regular flexible material is not.
Therefore, high-energy magnets are limited to magnetization through the Thickness, and are similar in strength to a Grade 1 ceramic magnet.
Attributes of Flexible Magnet
› High resistance to demagnetization
› Free form chipping, cracking or shattering Inexpensive
› Easy fabrication and handling
› High energy product vs. regular flexible material
› Low curie point, not good in heat applications
› Adhesive or plain
Applications of Flexible Magnet
› Magnetic Assemblies
