What do you use the magnetic strip for?
The magnetic strip is flexible and easy to trim, cut and process. The magnetic properties are retained. Because it is flexible, it attaches to both flat and curved steel surfaces.
The magnetic side has a UV coating. This prevents scratches on the surface.
A special self-adhesive makes the magnetic tape suitable for processing on various surface types such as wood, metal, paper and plastics. For indoor and outdoor use.
Available as a match-pole application: magnet on magnet for a perfect fit. The magnetic pole pattern of the both match-pole tapes fit together perfectly. This means both parts fit exactly. The magnetic multipole tapes are a set and are characterized by a smooth surface or groove.
Various grades of magnetic strip
Magnetic strip is available in isotropic and anti-isotropic grades. Magnetic material that is not pressed in a magnetic field is called isotropic. An isotropic magnet material can be magnetized in any direction. Isotropic magnets have a lower tensile force than anisotrope magnets.
One-sided multipole or axially magnetized. If the magnetic poles are located on one side of the magnetic material, this is called single-sided multipole magnetized.
The magnetic strip tensile force depends on implementation.
Applications: stand construction, technical applications, displays and door profiles.
What does magnetic strip consist of?
Magnetic strip is made of magnetic powder, composite rubber and other materials. Our magnetic strip does not contain hazardous chemicals or heavy metals. It complies with the EN71 standard and RoHS.
Extrusion and rolling are processing techniques of rubber bonded magnetic powder. This creates soft flexible magnets. Magnetic tape and magnetic band on rolls are produced by rolling. Magnetic strip or magnetic profile in special shapes are produced by extrusion.
The standard colour is dark brown. If desired, a coloured top layer of vinyl, a sticker or another top layer is possible. Magnetic strip is usually one-sided multi-pole magnetized.
How to store magnetic strip
Store magnetic strip in the closed packaging, flat, and at a temperature between 10 and 30 °C. The humidity should be between 20% and 70%. Keep magnetic strip out of direct sunlight. Shelf life is 12 months. The material can be rolled up at a temperature of 20 °C to a diameter of 12 mm without breaking.
Always roll magnetic strip with the coloured or adhesive side on the outside. This will prevent creasing and cracking in the top layer. Process magnetic strip at a temperature between 15 and 30 °C and a humidity of 30% to 60%. Process material in opened packaging within 1 month.
