Pot magnets - magnet systems with super-strong adhesive force
Strong, compact and flexible. Those are the quality features of our neodymium pot magnets. They are suitable as cup magnets, magnet base, outdoor attachments and for many other applications. We offer different types - from countersunk pot magnet over magnet base with thread to magnet systems with rubber coating and hard ferrite cup magnets. In addition, you can order channel magnets made of neodymium or ferrite in different models. This allows you to select the products that best fit your needs.
Suitable accessories for pot magnets
Features of cup magnets
These special products are a magnetic system consisting of a permanent magnet (a neodymium magnet) and a steel pot or a steel rail. The neodymium-iron-bor alloy provides the cup magnets with a magnetic super strength and they may reach a high adhesive force, even at a small size or flat design. Since the magnets are embedded in the steel pot, their strength is concentrated on the adhering surface at direct contact, which results in especially high magnetic power. Hence, you can use pot magnets for mounting solutions that are extremely strong and discreet at the same time. Most pot magnets are round but there are also rectangular and square magnetic systems.
Special features and tips
- To protect the magnet and ensure maximum adhesive force, the magnet must not protrude from the pot. In practice, the magnet is slightly recessed in the pot, which varies from magnet to magnet, but the adhesive force indicated in the webshop is guaranteed.
- The full adhesive force may be achieved if the ferromagnetic counterpart is smooth and sufficiently thick and the magnetic system is in direct contact with and flush against it.
- The indicated adhesive force is always measured perpendicular to the magnetic base. Hence, the cup magnet is significantly weaker on a wall as opposed to a ceiling. The adhesive force of a rubberised magnetic system is much higher in shear direction because it increased with friction. However, the weight-bearing capacity to tension is slightly lower.
- Depending on the application, there are various mounting options: Neodymium pot magnets with a borehole, thread (internal/external thread) or threaded peg (magnetic base) or glue-in cup magnet.
- Ideale counterparts for pot magnets are simple countersunk metal discs, which we also carry in our shop. They may be attached to non-magnetic surfaces such as wood, plastic or drywall with a countersunk screw.
- For the protection of delicate surfaces we recommend rubberised products. Alternatively, you can also purchase separate rubber caps in different variations from us.
- You can find various hooks and eyelets in our shop that you can screw onto a magnetic base or use as a replacement with eyelet magnets.
- Neodymium cup magnets are only suitable for indoor use. For outdoors we recommend rust-proof ferrite pot magnets.
- All products have the same pole on the adhering surface, which is why they cannot be stacked on top of each other; they rather align themselves next to each other.

Applications of magnetic systemsVersatile industrial use: With the help of strong neodymium magnets you may implement simple, stable and flexible mounting solutions in the areas of plant construction, interior design, booth and store construction, kitchen and furniture design.
In addition, you can use pot magnets at home, for hobbies and recreation. Would you like to hang up small or large, light or heavy objects permanently but still flexible on ferromagnetic surfaces? Purchase the right magnetic hook or base for it.
