Neodymium magnets: the super-strong ones
Neodymium magnets are also known as super magnets. A well-deserved name indeed, as they have extraordinary strength even at their smallest size and are among the strongest permanent magnets in the world. The magnetic material of our super-strength magnets is an alloy consisting of neodymium, iron and boron (NdFeB). Neodymium magnets are used for a wide range of applications, from cabinetry, lighting systems, plastics technology and packaging materials to the construction of models. We keep an inventory of over 35 million magnets and can fulfil even large orders directly from our warehouse at any time. With our 19 years of experience, we are your specialist for neodymium magnets. The advantages of neodymium magnets at a glance:
- Super-strong adhesive force
- Suitable for small spaces (miniaturisation)
- Even the smallest neodymium magnets are just as strong as larger common ferrite magnets

Neodymium super magnets: Strongest in the worldMany of you might ask yourself: Why is a neodymium magnet a super magnet? And: Wouldn’t a cheaper ferrite magnet be sufficient for my project? The special NdFeB combination (neodymium-iron-boron) results in a high adhesive force even in small magnets. It is no coincidence that neodymium magnets are also known as high-performance magnets. In contrast, ferrite magnets of the same volume are much weaker.
We recommend buying super magnets if you need a small, lightweight magnet or a large, extra-strong magnet. In the assortment of our online shop, you can find the perfect magnet for your project, from mini magnets to ultra-strong neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are slightly more expensive than ordinary ferrite magnets because neodymium is a rare earth metal. That is why super magnets are also known as rare earth magnets.
We recommend ferrite magnets when:
- used outdoors
- exposed to temperatures over 80 °C
A few "strong" facts about our neodymium magnets:
- The strongest ring magnet R-60-06-30-N: Ideal for "fishing" for ferromagnetic objects. It will easily pull your bike out of the river, for example.
- Our so-called "DEATH MAGNET": A compact block magnet with an adhesive force of 100 kg.
- The "strongest" block magnet in our online shop: The block magnet MONOLITH with an adhesive force of approx. 200 kg.
Before using any of our super magnets, please read the safety tips for neodymium magnets to avoid hazards and injuries.
Characteristics and tips
- The specified adhesive force is always measured at right angles to the surface. Because of the displacement force, neodymium magnets tolerate much less strain on a wall than they do on the ceiling. You can find further information on these topics on our FAQ page "What is the difference between adhesive force and displacement force/shear force?".
- The most commonly used coating on neodymium magnets contains nickel. However, in our online shop, you can also purchase magnets with other coatings such as chrome, copper or gold. You can find additional information on our FAQ page "Which magnet coatings are there?".
- Do not let neodymium magnets collide, otherwise the coating will come off or the magnets will shatter. This has nothing to do with inferior quality but is a typical characteristic of neodymium magnets. Learn more about it on our FAQ page "Why does the coating of my magnets chip?".
- Neodymium magnets are not intended for use outdoors as they will rust over time and lose their magnetisation. Outside, use ferrite magnets instead because they won’t rust. For more information go to our FAQ page "Can I use magnets outdoors as well?".
- You can use thin silicone discs to protect surfaces from being scratched by the magnets.
