- 20mm x 6mm x 1.5mm thick
- Each magnet's north and south pole are on opposite 20mm x 6mm faces
- Each magnet can support a steel weight of up to 0.86kg vertically from the magnetic face when in flush contact with a mild steel surface of equal thickness
- 300 degrees Celsius maximum operating temperature
- Resistant to demagnetisation and corrosion without any extra coating
Samarium cobalt is a type of rare-earth magnet that has the ability to withstand and operate in high temperatures, however they are not as powerful as super-strong Neodymium magnets. Because of their high maximum operating temperature they are commonly used in applications such as motors and electric motors, turbo machinery and sensors. They also have many uses in engineering and manufacturing where size and strength is important, in fact two samarium cobalt magnets will attract each other with twice the force that they attract steel.
