 Types of flexible magnet: flexible magnetic sheet, flexible magnetic tape, and flexible warehouse magnets 

There are three forms of flexible magnet: flexible magnetic sheet, flexible magnetic tape and flexible warehouse magnets.

 
     
   

Flexible magnetic tape

Flexible magnetic tape consists of a long, thin, flexible magnet which has been extruded into a flat rectangular shape during manufacture.

 

For more information on extrusion, see page How are flexible magnets manufactured?

 
     
 Laminated flexible magnetic tape 

The flexible magnetic tape is then wound onto a core to be used as a roll of tape. It can be available either with or without an adhesive backing, allowing it to be attached to ferromagnetic and non-magnetic materials.

Flexible warehouse magnet

 
 Flexible warehouse magnet 

A flexible warehouse magnet is flexible magnetic tape which has been made into a 'C' shape. The 'C' shape provides two lips for a piece of paper and a plastic cover to be slotted through, allowing the magnet to be used as a replaceable label.

Flexible warehouse magnets are used in warehouses where stock is constantly changing, so the labels need to be replaced easily.

Flexible magnetic sheet

 
 Pre-cut magnetic sheet - magnetic label 

A flexible magnetic sheet is a piece of flexible magnet which has been flattened into a large wide sheet. The difference between a flexible magnetic sheet and flexible magnetic tape is their widths. Flexible magnetic sheet has a width over 76.2mm (3"), whilst flexible magnetic tape is anything under this.
