Product Description

The cast Alnico 5 horseshoe magnet with red coating offers high heat resistance and medium magnetic pull, and comes with a keeper to retain magnetic strength. The magnet provides a maximum of 2 lb. of pull strength to a perpendicular surface (pounds of pull strength does not apply to shear force). The magnet can withstand temperatures up to 975 degrees F. Resistance to demagnetizing is low and resistance to corrosion is high.

Alnico magnets are made by casting or sintering aluminum, nickel, and cobalt with iron and small amounts of other metals to enhance the magnet grade’s specific properties. Magnetism is very stable in Alnico magnets, even in high-temperature technical applications. They can be formed in fairly complex shapes and produce highly magnetic fields in certain configurations. Alnico magnets are easily de-magnetized and re-magnetized. Alnico magnets can be plated with a variety of metals or given a coating that is usually red. They do not corrode.

I bought this for my 4 1/2 year old son after he watched an episode of Curious George featuring a red magnet. I wanted to find him a strong magnet with the classic red horseshoe design, and came across this one. The reviews sold me. To add my own, this magnet is STRONG. The only downside is that it's a bit small. About the size of an American quarter (.25 cent piece). My kid loves it, and plays with it everywhere. If they could make a similar magnet a few sizes bigger, I'd pay top dollar for it!

I was looking to get some magnets for experiments I was running and I was hoping I could find some magnets like what I grew up with in the 70's. Unfortunately finding a strong, quality horseshoe magnet isn't that easy. While these magnets are adequate, they don't elicit the sense of wonder and fun I had when I was a kid with my first powerful magnets.

A U shaped magnet was all my son wanted for his birthday... but did not tell me until I already purchased a few things. It is a small magnet a couple inches tall and wide and I knew that when buying it. It is a super strong magnet... totally rocks! And my son loves it.

I bought this to use to sort silver plate from sterling and fine. It barely passes as a magnet. You can pick up a pin with it but not much more.

This is a package of one magnet. I thought it was 1 package of 5 magnets (see the 5 in the description). You will get one small magnet. Disappointed.

Tiny but very strong. The red color makes it stand out, so it is hard to lose it. Definitely does the job for school project.
