This listing includes a top quality AlNico magnet which is made of AlNiCo 5 material. This magnet is 1/4" square and 1" long and magnetized through 1/4" so the N and S poles are on the 1x1/4" surfaces. This magnet has a holding of 2.34 lbs.
AlNiCo magnets have an extrodinary temperature stability than the other types of magnets so they are mostly used for high temperature toolings or the oil field where high temperature is present. AlNiCo magnets are also used as guitar pickups.
Generally speaking, AlNiCo magnets are more fragile than neodymium magnets but have a better machinbility so to provide a higher precision. AlNiCo magnets also have a better conductivity than the other types. There is no coating for this magnet. The following is the magnetic characteristics of this magnet.
