SWALLOWING A MAGNET: Do not swallow or inhale any of the magnets. The attraction between magnets  inside the  body may cause serious injury, and immediate medical assistance will be necessary. Keep out of reach of children. Magnets are not toys.

MAGNETS AND THEIR SURROUNDINGS: Keep a sufficient distance from any TVs, VCRs, and any magnetic media, such as computer hard drives, credit and ATM cards, data storage media, etc. Cameras, cell phones, and smartphones contain non-magnetic storage media. Therefore, no static magnetic field near these devices can erase their data. Our e-shop even offers a magnetic mobile phone holder. However, it cannot be ruled out that very strong magnetic fields may magnetise and possibly damage the mechanical parts or built-in speakers of these devices.

ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY OF MAGNETS: Neodymium magnets are made of metal and are conductive. Children may try to insert magnets into a socket and cause an electric shock. Make sure that no children play with magnets in this way.

RISK OF INJURY: Large, especially neodymium magnets, feature very strong forces of attraction. Any careless and uncontrolled handling may result in fingers or skin becoming jammed between the magnets. CAUTION: This may cause bruises and contusions. Very large, especially neodymium magnets, may cause bone fractures. Handle larger magnets with thick protective gloves.

MAGNETS AND THE HEART: Magnets may affect the operation of pacemakers and implanted cardiac defibrillators. A pacemaker may switch to its test mode and cause a sudden failure. One’s cardiac defibrillator may stop working. If you use them, keep a sufficient distance from the magnets. Warn others who use these devices not to get too close to the magnets.

RISK OF INJURY: The magnets are very fragile. Colliding magnets may crack and sharp chips may be thrown a few meters away, possibly injuring one’s eyes. Handle any magnets carefully and prevent their colliding. ATTENTION: Neodymium magnets are very strong and can be drawn to each other over long distances. Keep the magnets a good distance apart and use safety goggles when handling them. Think about the safety of people who are observing any magnet handling as well.

MACHINING A MAGNET: Do not drill, grind or machine any magnets in any way. There is the risk of ignition. Request our custom-made products .

NICKEL ALLERGY: Neodymium magnets usually contain nickel, even those that are not surface-treated with nickel. In some people, contact with nickel may trigger an allergic reaction. A nickel allergy can develop following constant contact with nickel-plated magnets; therefore, avoid any constant skin contact with neodymium magnets. If you are already allergic to nickel, avoid touching any magnets.

MAGNET-BASED HANDLING: If you use magnets to carry loads, excessive loads, loads with material defects or technological fatigue may cause these loads to fall. The specified tear-off forces are measured in ideal conditions without any impacts of any side effects and especiallys with the observance of an almost zero air gap between the magnet and its load. Do not use magnets to carry or handle any loads in locations where people are present.

SHIPPING MAGNETS: In case of shipping magnets by air or ground, poor packaging may affect the aircraft's navigation devices or post office sorting lines. In the worst-case scenario, they may cause an accident. If you ship any magnets by air or ground, ensure their magnetic field is perfectly shielded, e.g., by using magnetic plates, which you insert between the magnets and the walls of the box, or create a distance between the magnet and the wall of the box so that there is no residual magnetism on the outer side.

HEALTH RISKS: To date, it has not been proven that magnetic fields negatively affect health. It is very unlikely that magnetic fields would cause any health risk. However, it cannot be ruled out. Therefore, we recommend avoiding constant direct contact with magnets. The recommended safe distance is one meter.

MAGNET CORROSION: Neodymium magnets are very prone to corrosion. That is why most of our neodymium magnets are nickel-plated. However, this finish does not provide permanent protection when using our magnets outdoors. Therefore, use our neodymium magnets only in dry interiors or adequately protect them against any influences of outdoor environments. Make sure their surface finish is not damaged. Ferrite and SmCo magnets do not corrode, so a surface finish is not necessary.

TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE OF MAGNETS: Our neodymium magnets have a temperature resistance of 80-200°C, depending on the type you choose. If this temperature is exceeded, the magnets lose their magnetic force. When gluing a magnet, do not use any adhesives that require heat curing. You can use ferrite magnets up to a maximum temperature of 250°C. These magnets may be used to a minimum temperature of -40°C.

DISPOSAL OF MAGNETS: MAGSY is fully aware of the need to protect the environment for future generations; therefore, it pays attention to the development, innovation, and use of environmentally-friendly technologies and materials. MAGSY follows the European Directive restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products. Dispose of any magnets in accordance with the applicable local waste disposal regulations, e.g., by taking your magnets to a collection yard for sorting. 

FERRITE VS. NEODYMIUM MAGNETS: Strong neodymium magnets may cause a change in the direction of magnetisation or complete demagnetisation (loss of magnetic force) of ferrite magnets. Therefore, do not put any neodymium magnets and ferrite magnets closer to each other or together. Store them at least 10 cm apart.

RISK OF INJURY: For transportation reasons, for some magnets, especially bigger ones, thin magnetic sheets may be used to shield their magnetic field during packaging. We insert them inside the packaging on all the sides of the magnet. CAUTION: There is a risk of cutting yourself with these sheets. Wear suitable protective gloves and handle the magnet very carefully during unpacking. The magnet will get caught on the metal sheets by the magnetic force.
