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.

Cleaning and Storage Recommendations
Flexible magnets left on a vehicle over extended periods of time may become difficult to remove. Also, flexible magnets on vehicles left in direct sunlight may become bonded to the paint surface if not removed and cleaned regularly. Please download our flexible magnet cleaning and storage recommendations for more information.

Adams ClingMAG Magnet Sheet with Micro-Suction
ClingMAG™ combines two separate holding technologies, magnetic holding force, and micro-suction holding force to produce a thinner and lighter magnet that addresses potential challenges with magnet signage. The micro-suction silicon
layer on the back helps to reduce magnet particle migration
while it increases the holding force of the magnet, keeping it from sliding.
