Magnet Safety

  • Magnets should NOT be considered toys, and should be kept away from individuals who will utilize them for something other than their intended purpose. Children should be instructed to be extremely careful and not swallow any magnet.
  • Magnet should never be ingested. If ingested, seek immediate medical attention as it can cause serious or fatal results.
  • Magnets can pinch and break bones. Use extreme caution when handling magnets to avoid magnets snapping or slamming together. Do not put hands, fingers or any other body parts between magnets.
  • Use caution to keep magnets at a safe distance from metals, steel and other magnets to avoid instant impact, splintering or breakage.
  • Magnets, especially neodymium and samarium cobalt, are very hard and brittle and can chip. When handling magnets in an environment where they could shatter or break, it is recommended that eye protection be worn.
  • Magnetic fields, especially those produced by rare earth magnets, can effect pacemakers and other implanted medical devices. Extreme care should be taken to keep magnets away from these devices to avoid deactivation. Please consult a medical professional if there are any questions regarding an implanted device and magnets. 
  • Magnets can produce a far-reaching, strong magnetic field. This field may effect, or even damage many electronic devices, ID cards, credit cards, or any other magnetic media. 
  • Neodymium powder or dust is highly flammable and should never be exposed to fire. 
  • Magnets, especially neodymium, can demagnetize at high temperatures. Consult a technical magnet sales person to ensure you are utilizing the correct magnet for your application. 
  • Neodymium magnets will corrode if not coated properly.
  • Neodymium magnets are not waterproof and should not be exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time. If you application requires a water or moisture resistance coating, please contact a technical sales person for assistance.
