What is a flexible magnet?
|A flexible magnet is a permanent magnet that is made of ferrite magnet powder and rubber. A permanent magnet is that which emits a magnetic field without the need for any electricity.
For more information, see Magnets Glossary.
|The added rubber allows the flexible magnet to be coiled into a small radius, for example 6.35mm (0.25″). A flexible magnet can do this without causing any damage to itself, for example it will not crack or break easily.
|The flexibility of these magnets makes them very versatile, allowing them to be used to make car signs, hold a fridge door closed or help organise stock in a warehouse.

|There are three forms of flexible magnet: tape, warehouse and sheet. For more information, see the page: What are the different types of flexible magnet?
