About Permanent Magnet Materials

Neodymium Iron Boron alloy (NdFeB)

NdFeB magnets represent the latest and most significant development in permanent magnets for decades.

Their superior magnetic properties are represented in these graphs (click on either graph for a larger image).

Neodymium is a rare earth element found in monazite which is mined in many locations throughout Australia. Our major shareholder, SX Holdings Ltd, is building facilities to process the alloy within Australia so it will be a totally Australian product.
