Channel Magnet Ceramic Channel magnet 9 lb
This channel magnet is constructed of a ceramic magnet or hard Ferrite magnet. The magnet is assembled inside a steel channel with a hole going through the center of the magnet that makes it easy to use a screw to fasten the magnet to surfaces. The hole going through the center of the magnet measures 0.125" through the steel shell and 0.200" through the magnet itself. Please take this into account when attempting to use screws to fasten this magnet. If the screw you are using is too large, it can damage or crack the ceramic magnet.
Since the magnet is fixed and glued inside the steel channel, it is much more durable than a regular magnet which may break under impact. With the protection provided by the steel casing, the ceramic magnet is protected from contact which greatly extends the service life of the magnet making it a great long-term holding solution. Another added benefit of this magnet is that the ceramic magnet embedded in the channel is weatherproof and will not rust or corrode when used outdoors, unlike neodymium magnets.
Ceramic magnets are much cheaper than neodymium magnets, making this a much more economical solution than countersunk neodymium bar magnets.
- 9 lb holding power with a direct pull on a 3/4" on thick low carbon steel.
- The magnet in the channel is one pole and the channel edge is the other pole
