Magnetic rubber sheets are different from magnetic metal . Whereas a typical magnet is usually rigid in appearance, magnetic rubber sheets are generally flat and flexible.
The quality of the ‘antistatic rubber sheet’ (Also known as ‘แผ่นยางป้องกันไฟฟ้าสถิตย์‘ in the Thai language) is very flexible. It is thin and can be cut with scissors. It can be supplied with an adhesive backing and each color facing is usually made of vinyl.
It is available in sheets and rolls are easily extruded into profiles, and most of the profile can be designed to order.
Thin sheets can be cut into any shape and size. There are many different uses for rubber magnetic and typical applications:
o Planning board
o A printed magnet for example; refrigerator magnets
The flexible magnet will stick to metal surfaces and they are available in many different forms according to different applications.
Some types of rubber magnet may include:
o Ribbon Steel
o Flexible strip
o Letters or numbers
o Magnetic label
o Magnetic tape
o Adhesive-backed rubber sheets
o Vinyl faced sheet
The steel is not magnetic tape. It has an adhesive backing on one side and stuck to the surface of the non-ferrous or non-magnetic surface which in turn allows the magnet to attach to it.
A flexible magnetic strip has an adhesive applied to one side. They are supplied in pairs and are designed to be ‘positive’ snap together.
Adhesive-backed flexible rubber magnet sheets are easily cut or trimmed with scissors and are ideal for location markers, signs and exhibition vehicles.
When a magnet is placed near metal iron or another magnet will attract or attract another magnet or metal. When the surface of the magnet and a metal object touches the surface, the magnet will attach itself to it.
