Common Magnets Found In The Home | Adams Magnetic Products

Adams features two types of flexible magnetic materials in our magnet strip: Standard Energy and High Energy and they come in standard thicknesses. We are often asked how much holding power each material can produce so we created this table as a guide. It is based on ideal conditions and should only be used as […]

Infographic: Don’t look now but… You’re surrounded by magnets

Usually you won’t see them but they’re there, inside the devices you use every day. They get you to work and back home, they keep you in touch with friends around the world, and they make your life easier in a thousand different ways. We’re talking about magnets, of course. Ask most people to list […]

Questions about Stabilizing or Calibrating Permanent Magnets? Read our New Whitepaper

Permanent magnets are utilized in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications, many of which require these magnets to function in a highly stable and consistent manner. Variables such as temperature, and demagnetizing fields will impact performance, but these effects can be mitigated through stabilization or calibration. Our new whitepaper, Permanent Magnet Stabilizing and […]

How Does Cold Temperature Affect Magnets?

Cold weather is great for enjoying hot cocoa by a fireplace, college football, and white Christmases. But what does it do to magnets and does the temperature of a magnet affect its strength? As it turns out most magnets don’t mind the cold. In fact, some may perform better when the temperature drops. That’s because […]

How Are Magnets Used in Industry – Magnets for Industrial Use

For most people, when they think of a magnet they think of a simple item that sticks to a refrigerator door, or a clasp that holds a piece of jewelry together. But there is a whole other world of magnets classified for industrial use. In fact, if you look around your home or office you’ll […]

Flipping Earth’s Magnetic Fields – in IMAX 3D

How’s this for the plot of a new disaster movie – the earth’s magnetic field begins to weaken, and then flips completely. The result? Flash floods, earthquakes, meteor showers and other natural and cosmic calamities, none of which prevent Tom Cruise from getting his family to safety. Title: Field of Screams. The idea is less […]

What Does Gauss Mean & What Does Gauss Measure?

Many companies that work with magnets in manufacturing use the term ‘gauss’ every day. Some may not know that the term has its origins in the work of a German mathematician named Carl Friedrich Gauss, who used mathematical principles to measure magnetism. Of course, you could probably get by without that particular trivia nugget. It’s […]

Magnet Blog: Loving the Latch Magnet

Latch magnets are among the most versatile products we offer. As a replacement for standard latch hardware on a door, latch magnets have a cleaner look and can be installed in any number of ways depending on preferred use and appearance. Whether it’s a door lock or a doorstop, Adams has latch magnets that hold […]

Magnet Blog: Can You Really Erase Your Hard Drive With A Magnet

We are often asked if we sell magnets that will erase hard drives. This is not one of our target applications, and most of our engineers report that they prefer a sledge hammer to a magnet when looking for external forces to disable the storage device. Magnets often distort more than erase the data. Here’s […]
