Neodymium waterproof magnets
Waterproof magnets have the advantage that they can be used both indoors and outdoors without any problem. However, there are different types of magnets such as neodymium magnets, where it must be guaranteed that they are waterproof to be used outdoors.
Waterproof magnets have the advantage that they can be used both indoors and outdoors without any problem. However, there are different types of magnets such as neodymium magnets, where it must be guaranteed that they are waterproof to be used outdoors. Neodymium magnets are very susceptible to oxidation without special treatment or a protective coating, so they should generally only be used indoors and not in relation to moisture. To be impervious, they must have at least one nickel-copper-nickel coating, and should not be used outdoors for extended periods of time. If you use a protective varnish, you should regularly check to see if rust has formed and, if so, you should replace it.
What types of waterproof magnets are there?
On the one hand, you can use coated magnets. These are completely coated with a plastic layer and are ideal for long-term use outdoors or in places with high humidity levels. Another option is to insert the magnets into a PVC sleeve and, therefore, they are also fully protected. The only drawback is the fact that the casing can slightly reduce the magnetic force, although we speak of neodymium magnets, being strong enough. In addition, the cover also provides scratch protection on sensitive surfaces.
Where are waterproof magnets used?
Waterproof magnets are used in various fields. On the one hand, they can be used underwater, e.g. for magnetic fishing, and on the other hand they can be easily used in a humid environment. These can be in all sorts of areas you can imagine, for example, cooling systems, conveyor belts where water is used to clean...
