Permanent magnet materials used in aerospace and defense applications:
- Samarium Cobalt is often used in aerospace & military applications due to its high working temperature of up to 350 ˚F.
- Neodymium high-temperature grades are another good choice with a working temperature up to 230˚F.
- Alnico has excellent temperature stability.
- Ceramic material is highly corrosion resistant.

Adams uses the most up-to-date magnetic modeling software that can accurately predict the performance of virtually any type of magnet, magnet assembly, or electromagnet. It can predict magnetic fields from sensor magnets, pull forces from holding assemblies, torque from torque assemblies, and electromagnet performance.
Surface Protection: Coating Rare Earth Magnets
Corrosion-resistant coatings can be applied to magnets directly after production and cleaning, and prior to magnetization. Standard coatings include nickel, epoxy, and zinc spray coatings. Surface protection may also be applied to magnets in the finished product system. Contact Adams applications support to help you select the best coating for your application.
Most magnets are assembled into magnet systems using adhesives. Such construction may require the adhesion of multiple magnets to one another or to support parts. But before doing so, several factors must be considered to assure the effective performance of the magnet, the adhesive, and the resulting bond. These include the chemical and physical properties of the magnets and the surfaces to which they are bonded. Detailed coverage of all these factors, along with some adhesives to try, is covered in our white paper Gluing Magnets.
