Magnet Blog: Gluing Rare Earth Magnets: A Sticky Situation


If you search the Internet for advice on how to glue rare earth magnets, you’ll find as many questions as you will answers. From message boards on hobby sites to industrial manufacturing FAQs, there seems to be no consensus on the most effective way to glue a neodymium magnet, or on how to do so in an efficient and economical manner. The choice of adhesive is only one issue. How should the surface be prepared? Must it be cleaned first? Does sandblasting help or hurt adhesion? Adams has a new white paper on gluing rare earth magnets that answers many of these questions, and lists the pros and cons of the adhesive options currently available. Of course, we also offer our own TabMAG™ neodymium magnets with an easy-pull adhesive liner. If this solution works with your application, problem solved. But for other applications, we hope this white paper offers some helpful advice.
