FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use magnets outdoors as well?
Neodymium magnetsWe recommend using neodymium magnets exclusively in dry indoor areas.
Untreated neodymium magnets oxidise very quickly and break. To protect our magnets from corrosion, they have a thin nickel copper nickel coating.
The coating offers a certain protection against corrosion, but is not resistant enough to withstand long-term outdoor use. Unfortunately, there is not coating that reliably protects neodymium magnets from rust.
Therefore, please use neodymium magnets only in dry indoor areas or protect the magnets from environmental influences with anti-corrosion paint, transparent varnish or waterproof packaging.
Avoid damaging the protective coating and check magnets frequently for rust. Please keep in mind that you will need to replace rusting magnets.
