Plastalloy material can be magnetized using various magnetization methods including conventional, two-poles each side, multiple-poles, or custom solutions to suit many medical and dental applications. It is suitable for custom encoders and speed sensing magnets, as well as Hall Effect and other magnetically actuated switches. Lead-free Plastalloy can also be indicated for environmentally sensitive applications. The material can be bent, twisted, and flexed without the loss of magnetic energy (up to 1.6 MGOe). It is available in magnet sheets, strips, or die-cut shapes with options including pressure-sensitive adhesive, polarity identification, customized formulations, and special cutting techniques.
