Standard Specifications for Permanent Magnet Materials
Defines thermal and mechanical characteristics and properties of commercially available permanent magnet materials including Alnico, Ceramic, Rare Earth (Samarium cobalt and neodymium) and Iron-Chromium-Cobalt. Includes a Glossary of Terms and Magnetic Quantities (Symbols, Units and Conversion Factors).
Breakaway Force of a Magnet
Explains the test methods used to determine how much force it takes to pull a magnet directly away from the surface it is attached to.
Chart of Material Grades and Properties
Permanent magnet materials are graded based on the maximum energy they produce. Each grade has its own magnetic properties relating to the strength of magnetic field output, resistance to demagnetization, maximum recommended operating temperature, and temperature coefficients.
Our chart of material properties displays each permanent magnet material along with its Maximum Energy Product: Bhmax, Residual Flux Density: Br Gauss, Coercive Force: Hc Oersteds, Intrinsic Coercive Force: Hci Oersteds, and Maximum Operating Temperature: C / F.

Adams Hard Magnet Materials Catalog updated 2020
(7MB) This PDF catalog features a magnet materials overview, chart of materials properties and demagnetization curves for Neodymium, Samarium Cobalt, Ceramic (Ferrite) and Alnico materials offered by Adams. New in 2020, we’ve added more curves, and a coatings chart to assist with corrosion protection decisions.
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.
Adams Stock Products Catalog 2018
We are delighted to share our 2018 catalog with you. We’ve added updated information about our fabrication capabilities, available in Elmhurst, IL and Carlsbad, CA. We’ve also added new neodymium holding assemblies, a MAGbond Magnetic Media System overview, and high energy wide-format magnetic sheet (40″ wide and still printable!). If you’d prefer to receive a hard copy of this catalog, let us know.
GreenMAG Recyclable Printable Sheet
GreenMAG uses a durable printable coating applied directly to our magnet sheet, eliminating the need for a laminated print surface. This makes it completely recyclable. Available up to 30″ wide.
