What to know about 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.

Flexible magnets can be customized for use everywhere from offices to warehouses, garages to craft tables, and restaurants to classrooms. Adams can fabricate flexible magnets to your final desired size and color. We can also tell you right now how many pieces of your final size magnet you can get out of a 200 SF roll of magnetic sheet. And how much your order will weigh based on how many pieces you want. Just open our sheet size calculator and plug in the size and total quantity, and we'll tell you how many pieces per roll and the approximate weight of the shipment.
