With 20,000,000 magnets immediately available from stock, whether you are looking for a handful of magnets for your fridge or whether you are a manufacturer seeking a trusted, reliable supplier capable of delivering in bulk then we are confident we can meet your needs. In our range you will find magnets and magnetic assemblies made from five different materials, each with different characteristics. They are:

Alnico – traditional bar and horseshoe magnets, mainly used in education and marine industries.

Ferrite – weakest of the ‘hard’ permanent magnets but great value. Smaller versions are commonly used for novelty magnets while larger versions are commonly used in processing industries.

Flexible rubber – available in tapes, sheets and labels and commonly used in displays and signage.

Neodymium – the strongest magnets available. Because of their strength they can be made very small making them incredibly versatile.

Samarium cobalt – second in strength to neodymium, samarium cobalt magnets come into their own at elevated temperatures and have superior resistance to corrosion.
