Cast Alnico 5 bridge magnet offers high heat resistance and medium magnetic pull
Magnet has a 0.20" diameter hole on top
High resistance to corrosion
Low resistance to demagnetizing
Magnet assembly includes a keeper to retain magnetic strength
The cast Alnico 5 bridge magnet with red coating offers high heat resistance and medium magnetic pull. Cast Alnico is produced with aluminum, nickel, and cobalt with iron, and small amounts of other metals. The magnet provides a maximum of 30 lb. of pull strength to a perpendicular surface (pounds of pull strength does not apply to shear force). The magnet can withstand temperatures up to 975 degree F and has a 0.20" diameter hole on top. It comes with a keeper to retain magnetic strength. Resistance to demagnetizing is low and resistance to corrosion is high.
Alnico magnets are made by casting or sintering aluminum, nickel, and cobalt with iron and small amounts of other metals to enhance the magnet grade’s specific properties. Magnetism is very stable in Alnico magnets, even in high-temperature technical applications. They can be formed in fairly complex shapes and produce highly magnetic fields in certain configurations. Alnico magnets are easily de-magnetized and re-magnetized. Alnico magnets can be plated with a variety of metals or given a coating that is usually red. They do not corrode.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a compact but powerful magnet which would have made a perfect gift for my nine-year-old nephew except for the fact that it arrived with a substantial chip missing from one of its legs. Consequently, I also gave him a second gift to help mitigate the damaged condition of the magnet.
