Which glue should I use?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions. In most cases, the application will determine which glue to use. However, the wrong choice of adhesive may result in the magnet being pulled from its operating surface. This is especially true of Neodymium magnets due to their great strength. Using an adhesive which dries without some form of flexibility can add to this problem.
We recommend the three adhesive types below for use with magnets:
Silicone Often used for larger magnets, Silicone is a simple and cost effective solution when fixing magnets in place.
Epoxy Resin This is the most commonly used adhesive as it dries relatively quickly and retains flexibility.
Cyanoacrylate (CA) Similar to epoxy glues, CA requires an initiator to activate and can be applied to metal, plastics & glass. We recommend using an adhesive which has superior strength and excellent resistance to both peeling and fatigue. CA adhesives have a short shelf life. Make sure to check the date-stamp to ensure that the adhesive is still viable.
