This cylindrical ceramic magnet is made of C8 hard ferrite material and magnetized through the 1" length. So the N and S poles are on the flat surfaces. It's the most economical type of permanent magnets but is still applicable to most of the applications.
Ceramic magnets are the most economical yet still very strong permanent magnets. It has the longest history by mankind among all the types of permanent magnets. It also has a good resistance to the high heat comparing with other types of magnets. They are widely used in industrial and homes. You can virtually see them anywhere in your daily life. For example, magnetic separators, speaker magnets, motors, generators, refrigerator magnets, magnetic holders, magnetic pushpins, crafting magnets, science project magnets, etc.
