Flexible magnet comprises magnetic particles held inside a flexible polymer binder, and it belongs to the permanent magnet family. A variety of carriers, such as vinyl, are bonded with rare earth magnet or ferrite powders to manufacture flexible magnet materials. This material has the property of bending, twisting, coiling, and machining into almost any shape and size without losing its magnetic energy. The flexible magnet can be easily cut with a pair of scissors and simply adhered to other items. Flexible magnets are mainly categorized into two types, i.e., magnetic sheet and extruded magnetic profiles.
