We produced this magnet especially for the CD-ROM model airplane engine do-it-your-selfers. It's a little bit stronger than the old Q-05-05-01-G (no longer offered) so the engines are a bit more efficient. Heat-resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius.
Naturally, there are lots of other uses for this small gold-plated magnet. It holds, for example, 2-3 pieces of A4 paper. It looks really nice when 2-4 magnets are used to hold up some paper. A very discreet thickness of only 1 mm.
