A. MagTrim® magnets are manufactured using nickel-plated, Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB). Refrigerator magnets, on the other hand, are composed of a mixture of powdered ferrite (iron rust) and plastic that are melted together and then exposed to a strong magnetic field. Neodymium Iron Boron is 20X stronger than ferrite and thus lends itself well to applications involving a strong and secure attachment ( like attaching to a chandelier)!
How much weight will a MagTrim® magnet hold?
MagTrims® instantly adhere to iron based metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt and tin as well as alloys such as steel.
What types of metals will a MagTrim® NOT attach to?
MagTrims® will NOT attach to bronze, copper, aluminum, or brass.
Will the MagTrim® magnet ever lose its “magnetism?”
No. NdFeB magnets like those used in a MagTrim® will ONLY lose their magnetism if exposed to a high temperature of 1414 °F.
Will the magnets on my MagTrims® rust?
No. Our neodymium magnets are plated in nickel, which is corrosion resistant.However, we recommend keeping MagTrim® crystals and ornaments out of high humidity situations so as to minimize the risk of corrosion.
How do I clean my crystal or glass MagTrims®?
We advise using a damp cloth to wipe the charm clean. We have heard reports of customers "sticking" their MagTrims® in the dishwasher (they “stick” to the metal racks in the washer) but we do not recommend this method of cleaning!
Do you create “custom” designs?
Yes. We would be happy to manufacture a design that meets your specific design criteria. You will simply need to send us a photo, sample, or illustration showing your design and specify the material you would like used to create your design. We have a 250 piece minimum for all custom designs, and a 50% deposit must be submitted before production can begin. Please contact us for quote.
