Neodymium Magnets 2 inch x 1 inch x 0.5 inch Thick N42 Block Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets Epoxy+Copper+Nickel Triple Layer Coated - Stronger than N35, N38 and N40
Neodymium Magnets are the world's strongest magnets. All magnets are not created equal! Applied Magnets offers the highest quality neodymium magnets with consistent performance at lowest price. Our strong neodymium magnets are designed & manufactured to meet stringent quality standards using the latest technology.
Neodymium magnets (also known as Neo, NdFeB, NIB or super magnet) , a type of rare earth magnets, are the permanent magnets made from neodymium, iron, boron and other minor elements.
Grade N42 is the recommended Grade due to its cost effectiveness over N35/N38/N40 in Hugh Piggott's new book "A Wind Turbine Recipe Book".
For wind generator magnets, coating and performance are the most important things to consider, we recommend Epoxy+Copper+Nickel 3-layer coating for long term durability under all weather conditions, we don't recommend Epoxy single layer coating, please read details below. To have better performance for your wind generator, the higher grade the magnets, the better; we recommend at least N42 or higher grade for high performance.
Grade Makes a big difference ! The higher the grade, the stronger the magnet
N42 grade vs. N35/N38/N40
N35 is the lowest NdFeB neodymium magnet grade on the market, we don't carry N35 grade due to its lower performance making our N42 grade the better value.
N38 and N40 are lower grades compared to N42.
Coating Makes a big difference !
Hugh Piggott talks about wind turbine failure caused by magnet corrosion due to bad coating in his book:
"........ the magnets themselves that can lead to a major failure in under 5 years............. Once the protective plating on the magnet is punctured, the magnet corrodes and swells gradually."
3-layer coating (Nickel + Copper + Nickel and Epoxy + Copper + Nickel) vs. Epoxy single layer coating
Epoxy single layer coating is THE LEAST durable coating from our experience. 3-layer coating is much more durable than Epoxy single layer coating because Epoxy single layer coating is a thin layer of plastic and quicker to wear off, even a scratch can damage the coating easily. More importantly, magnets with 3-layer coating have superior cracking and chipping resistance in comparison to magnets with Epoxy single layer coating. Customer beware of the magnets with the inferior Epoxy single layer coating.
Epoxy+Copper+Nickel 3-layer coating vs. Nickel+Copper+Nickel 3-layer coating
Epoxy + Copper + Nickel 3-layer coating has superior Corrosion Resistance and excellent adhesion to metal surface than Nickel + Copper + Nickel coating, this coating is ideal for bonding metal. Nickel+Copper+Nickel coating provides protection against moisture and oxygen but is prone to corrosion in salt and acidic conditions.
Epoxy-Copper-Nickel triple layer offers maximum corrosion resistance and durability.

Look through our picture gallery to find the product you are looking for and we will deliver it to you.
Many materials have unpaired electron spins, and the majority of these materials are paramagnetic. When the spins interact with each other in such a way that the spins align spontaneously, the materials are called ferromagnetic (what is often loosely termed as "magnetic"). Due to the way their regular crystalline atomic structure causes their spins to interact, some metals are (ferro)magnetic when found in their natural states, as ores. These include iron ore (magnetite or lodestone), cobalt and nickel, as well the rare earth metals gadolinium and dysprosium (when at a very low temperature). Such naturally occurring (ferro)magnets were used in the first experiments with magnetism. Technology has since expanded the availability of magnetic materials to include various manmade products, all based, however, on naturally magnetic elements.
Not only do we have a collection of ceramic magnets but we also have a large range of Neodymium Magnets as well. These magnets are very robust in relation to their size. Popular with industries and hobbyists. Neodymium magnets are used in a wide variety of applications. From hard drives to headphones to loudspeakers these magnets have seen it all.
Ceramic Magnets or ferrite
Ceramic magnets, or ferrite, are made of a sintered composite of powdered iron oxide and barium/strontium carbonate ceramic. Due to the low cost of the materials and manufacturing methods, inexpensive Ceramic magnets (or nonmagnetized ferromagnetic cores, for use in electronic component such as radio antennas, for example) of various shapes can be easily mass produced. The resulting Ceramic magnets are noncorroding, but brittle and must be treated like other ceramics.
Neodymium magnets, more formally referred to as neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets, have the highest magnetic field strength, but are inferior to samarium cobalt in resistance to oxidation and temperature. This type of magnet has traditionally been expensive, due to both the cost of raw materials and licensing of the patents involved. This high cost limited their use to applications where such high strengths from a compact magnet are critical. Use of protective surface treatments such as gold, nickel, zinc and tin plating and epoxy resin coating can provide corrosion protection where required. Beginning in the 1980s, NIB magnets have increasingly become less expensive and more popular in other applications such as children's magnetic building toys. Even tiny neodymium magnets are very powerful and have important safety considerations.At Applied Magnets you will get the best possible price on these Neodymium magnets.
