High-strength Plastalloy magnets from Electrodyne extend the service life of drivetrains, hydraulic lines, and metalworking equipment by capturing metal filings, chips, and other ferrous materials that could damage downstream components. The oil-resistant magnets work in temperatures to 150°C (302°F) to improve filter element performance and are suitable for off-road vehicles. Lead-free, unbreakable Plastalloy is environmentally friendly and can be magnetized using various methods including conventional, two-poles each side, multiple poles, or with custom patterns. It can be bent, twisted, and flexed without the loss of magnetic energy and is available in sheets, strips, or die-cut shapes.
