What are Flexible Magnets?

Flexible magnets (strip and sheet) are a type of magnet made from ferrite powder and rubber polymer resin. These bendable magnets are not as durable as heavy, solid magnets; but they offer a lightweight alternative that can be cut into a variety of shapes and used for a wide range of applications in factories, schools, homes and businesses.

Adams can create flexible magnets in custom widths, thicknesses and lengths in one of our two fabrication facilities in Chicago, IL or Irvine, CA.  Our flexible magnet is available either plain or with a range of adhesive options including foam, rubber, acrylic, and double-faced. We also offer cutting, scoring, die cutting, and custom magnetization.

Adhesives

Selecting the right adhesive is critical to product function, and is dependent on the type of material you apply our magnets to, and under what conditions they will be used.  We have several options to work for indoor applications, outdoor applications, or when more tack is required.  We can supply our magnets with almost any type of adhesive available, including foam and permanent or removable adhesive.  To view and download our standard adhesive specifications, click here.

Benefits of Using Flexible Magnets

The easy manipulation of flexible magnets permits design innovations and automated manufacturing techniques not possible with rigid or brittle materials. Flexible magnet materials can be bent, twisted, coiled, slit, punched, and otherwise machined into almost any shape without loss of magnetic energy.
