Glue-in pot magnets

These pot magnets are designed to be mounted by gluing. The glue-in magnet is magnetic on one side and flat on the other. The flat side is where you put the glue. The glue-in pot magnets have a higher strength than other pot magnets of the same size. This is because the glue-in pot magnet has a larger contact area and a slightly larger magnet.
A few use cases for the glue-in pot magnets are:

  • As a closing mechanism in wood and metal work
  • Organizing tools on a tool wall
  • Magnetic closure for cupboards and drawers
  • Hanging ceiling panels for e.g. art exhibitions
Glue-in pot magnets have a very strong magnetic pull force due to their steel pot/cap. But be aware that the strength is calculated for a direct pull. If the pot magnet is placed on a vertical surface (e.g. a whiteboard), the pot magnet will hold 10-15% of the stated strength before it slides down or tips off. Therefore, you should check whether the pot magnet needs to hold something vertically or horizontally and choose the magnetic strength accordingly. To prevent the pot magnet from sliding down, you can increase the friction by using a rubber cap or silicone washer. You will find a link to them below.
