A Magnetic field is an invisible flux moving from one end of the magnet to the other. Shown in Figure1. The flux consists of moving or spinning electrically charged particles invisible to the eye. Neodymium magnets do not spend their energy like a battery. They will retain their power over 100's of years. Magnets have potential energy which means that they have the ability to conserve energy. The magnet will display or release some of its conserved energy when pulling towards or attaching to something then conserve or store the energy that the user exerts when pulling it off.
Every magnet has a north seeking and a south seeking face on opposite ends. The north face of one magnet will always be attracted towards the south face of another magnet.

Cylinder | Disc | Rod
Magnetized through the length or thickness. Strongest points are on the flat faces.
Magnetized through the diameter. Strongest points are on the curved surface.
Magnetized on the diameter of the magnets. All north, all south, or alternating polarities.
Cubes / Rectangles
Through The Thickness.
Magnetized through the thickness. Strongest points on the ends of the thickness. Thickness is usually the smallest dimension of a rectangle.
Through the Width.
Magnetized through the width. Strongest points on the ends of the width. Width is usually the 2nd largest dimension of a rectangle.
Through the Length.
Magnetized through the length. 2 Strongest points on the ends of the Length. Length is usually the largest dimension of a rectangle.
Diametrically Magnetized Arc.
Magnetized from the Inside Radius (r) through the Outside Radious (R). Strongest points are on the curved surfaces. Not a stocked item but available upon request.
Chord Magnetized Arc.
Magnetized Across the Arc. Strongest points are on the flat angled faces. Not a stocked item but available upon request
Axially Magnetized Arc.
Magnetized through the thickness. Strongest points are on the flat faces. Not a stocked item but available upon request
A Cup or Pot is a regular magnet inside of a stainless steel shell. This shell absorbs the magnetic field on one side and forces it toward the opposite direction, creating a double pull at one end of the magnet. The Stainless steel shell doubles as a very tough layer of protection form harsh environments.
Magnetized through the diameter (Like the Earth). Strongest points are on opposite ends.
The Polymagnet® Catalog is a library of pre-engineered Polymagnet products. Rather than simply repel or attract, Polymagnets have unique properties including improved strength and new magnetic interactions such as rotational alignment, twist to release, and many more unique functions (Show Below) The catalog contains a wide variety of polymagnet functions in a broad range of sizes and shapes, all of which are available for purchase now.
