Safety Information

Important safety instructions for handling our magnets!

Permanent magnets and magnetic materials require special precautions. Please read the instructions carefully before use. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. The company "magnets4you GmbH" rejects any liability arising from improper handling of the magnets.



Increased caution with children:

Keep magnets away from children! Danger of swallowing and serious injuries!


When handling strong magnets, pay attention to appropriate safety measures and protective clothing. Before use, remove all magnetic objects and use protective gloves and glasses.


No mechanical processing and collisions!

Incorrect handling of the magnets leads to a loss of the magnetic effect and to the destruction of the magnet. In addition, highly flammable drilling dust and other significant health risks are caused by the following hazards.

Danger from magnets


Improper handling of magnets can lead to bruises, contusions, or even broken bones.


Magnets are brittle. Collisions cause small parts to splinter, which leads to health hazards and damage to the magnet.


Magnetic fields
Strong magnets can endanger and destroy electronic and mechanical components (pacemakers, data carriers, credit cards, electronic devices, etc.).

Warnhinweise_Herzschrittmacher Persons with cardiac pacemakers must not expose themselves to magnetic fields.


Other Risks

- Many magnets have coatings that some people are allergic to. You should therefore avoid excessive skin contact with raw magnets.
- Health hazards when they encounter food and drinking water. Only use magnets that are specifically designed for this area!

Transportation and shipping


When shipping magnets, applicable regulations for stray magnetic fields during air transport must be observed (IATA dangerous goods regulations). These provisions also apply to built-in magnets.

Correct separation of magnets


Correct!  Wrong!
Magnete-richtig-trennen Falsche-Trennung-von-Magneten
1. Slide the top magnet sideways out of the stack.    
2. When the magnetic force decreases, carefully lift the magnet.
3. The magnet can now be removed upwards from the stack.
1. Do not pull the magnet out of the stack until it has been pushed aside.
2. Avoid pinching skin or fingers between the magnets.
3. Do not allow magnets to hit each other or a surface. This can cause the magnet to break.



Magnets4you GmbH guarantees the functionality of the magnets and magnet products supplied, which mainly refers to the specified adhesive force. You can read about the basics for determining the specified adhesive force here.
If the following so-called damage occurs when using the magnets, this does not entitle you to a complaint, notification of defects or a guarantee exchange:

a)  Neodymium magnets

  • Peeling off of the surface coating
    If you (intentionally or unintentionally) collide neodymium magnets, the coating can flake off. With frequent handling, e.g. in the hand, the coating can be rubbed off.

  • Breaking the magnets
    If handled improperly, neodymium magnets can break. This is especially the case when two magnets collide uncontrollably or fall to the ground. A broken magnet can therefore not be replaced on the basis of a warranty claim.

  • Reduction/loss of adhesive force due to high temperatures
    All neodymium magnets from our company can be heated up to the specified operating temperature, usually 80 degrees Celsius. However, if the magnets are exposed to a higher temperature, the magnets lose some or all of their magnetization.

b) Ferrite magnets

  • Texture of the surface
    Ferrite magnets are made by sintering. Due to this type of production, the magnets can have fine cracks or sharp edges. However, this is not a product defect. 

  • Reduction / loss of adhesive force due to high temperatures
    All of our ferrite magnets are heat resistant up to 250 degrees Celsius. If the magnets are exposed to a higher temperature, they lose part or all of their magnetization. 
  • Demagnetization by neodymium magnets
    Due to their strength, neodymium magnets can remagnetize or even demagnetize ferrite magnets. For this reason, always store or transport the two types of magnets at least 3 cm apart. 

The warranty period is 2 years, calculated from delivery. This does not affect the duties to examine and give notice of defects applicable to merchants in accordance with Sections 377 and 378 of the German Commercial Code. The assignment of warranty claims to third parties is excluded.
