Q: What are Magnetic Sheets used for? Can they produce a magnetic field, similar to rigid magnets?
Magnetic sheets have the flexibility of paper and cardboard products and can be used in the same type of applications but can attach magnetically to steel surfaces.
The magnetic sheet material contains a mix of rubber and powdered Ferrite magnetic matter that allows the sheet to remain flexible. The thin sheets have only a moderate bond but this makes the sheets easy to remove and reapply to steel surfaces when needed. Typical applications for magnetic sheeting are promotional advertising products like fridge magnets and printed vehicle signage.
The magnetic sheets are generally less than 1mm thick. The thin flexible nature of the sheets and the high rubber content means these magnetic sheet products have far less magnetic power than thicker, non-flexible magnets. Most of the Frenergy White Sheet magnets are 620mm wide and sold in lengths of 1 metre.
We also have a range of Coloured Sheet magnets in 10-metre rolls. You can find various other magnetic sheet products for office printing, warehouse labelling and commercial printing in Frenergy’s Flexible Magnetic Rubber category.
