This cup magnet is made of ceramic magnet or hard ferrite magnet. The magnet is assembled inside a steel cup with an M5 female threaded stud on the cup. It can be used as a holding magnet in various situations.
Since the magnet is fixed and glued inside the steel cup, it is protected by the steel cap which significantly prolongs the service life of the magnet. For longevity purposes, this assembly is far more preferable than a regular magnet.
Ceramic magnets are weaker than neodymium magnets, but are significantly cheaper and are corrosion proof, making them perfect in applications in which they will be outdoors.
