Neodymium magnets are the most powerful of all permanent magnets. They are often known as “Super Magnets”. They are used in APPLICATIONS where the strongest magnetic force is required from the smallest possible volume of magnet material. Even small neodymium magnets have a surprising amount of magnetic force and they are capable of lifting in excess of 1,000 times their own weight. A neodymium disc magnet weighing only 2 grams can lift a steel block weighing over 2,000 grams!
