Intruduction of Rubber Coated Magnets
Did you know that there is a certain kind of magnet used by people that is coated with rubber.. Yes, this type of magnet is called rubber coated magnets. While making these magnets, the magnet is coated firmly with rubber. Neodymium magnet is mostly used because it is the strongest magnet on earth.
The basic purpose of coating a magnet with rubber is to increase its durability by protecting it from liquid and scratches and also, to make it more resistant to slide.
These magnets are fit for being used in an outside environment and water because the rubber protects the magnet from corrosion. The rubber basically makes the magnet water resistant.
Why do you need rubber coated magnets?
These magnets are needed when you want to attach something to a surface without damaging the surface. The rubber surface acts as a cushion and helps prevent any scratches and damages on the surface. Normal magnets with no rubber coating can not be used in areas with high humidity. The high water content of the air will lead to corrosion on the magnet's surface and the magnet will lose its strength. Also, uncoated magnets can't be used under water because of the sake reason, i.e. corrosion.
We need these magnets when we don't want the magnet to slide. The high friction of these magnets make them suitable for such tasks.
Speaking about the uses of rubber coated magnets, where are they used and why are they used?
There are many uses of rubber coated magnets.
Firstly, it can be used as fixing points.
You can use it as a fixing point anywhere, for example on your car, to fix a number plate or neon lights. Rubber coated magnets are used by a lot of late night drivers, truckers, emergency workers, etc to fix neon lights or danger signs.
These are used everywhere, be it a construction site, to affix a danger sign or in a classroom to fix a projector. Classrooms, offices, buses and in many more places, rubber coated magnets are used.
Drilling the surface of objects can be avoided by the use of these magnets.
Since, the rubber coating makes the magnet water resistant, it can easily be used underwater without any fear of corrosion. This makes the magnet suitable for use in aquariums where the magnet holds metal together underwater without any fear of corrosion or damage to the surface.
These magnets can also be used to make attachments for non metallic items. Also, they can be used on painted walls as the rubber coating will prevent any damages or scratches to the surface.
It can also be used to stick temporary sheets on windows and gates of a house. A threaded sheet can also be used in houses to prevent the entry of flies and mosquitoes.
Where can you get rubber coated magnets?
These are available in local hardware shops or can be made available to you upon order. Or you can always order it online. The best thing about these magnets is that they are customisable. You can get it in the shape that you require.
