Rare earth magnets are a type of permanent magnets that are made from alloys of rare earth elements. These magnets are ferromagnetic in nature and can be magnetized like iron. They are characterized by higher magnetic field strength and magnetic stability when compared with ferrite or alnico magnets. This aids in product miniaturization, enhancing product performance and minimizing overall manufacturing costs. Since they are also extremely brittle and prone to corrosion, they are most commonly coated or plated with other metals to avoid chipping, breaking or crumbling into powder. These magnets are combined with various transition metals, including iron, nickel and cobalt, to improve their natural magnetic properties. They are widely used in the manufacturing of printers, motors, microphones, separators and automotive starters.
