About Licensed Neodymium Magnets
Modern neodymium magnets are made using a patented process. This process combines neodymium, iron, boron, and other minerals to create the uniquely strong and lasting permanent magnets that we sell here at Amazing Magnets.
Because this process was developed, perfected, and patented so recently, the technique used to manufacture neodymium magnets is still subject to intellectual property laws. There are some facilities licensed to use the formula, and these facilities produce LICENSED neodymium magnets. Other facilities have attempted to copy or steal the original process and duplicate it, and these places produce unlicensed or illegal neodymium magnets.
As a company, knowingly using unlicensed neodymium magnets in your project can subject you to legal action from the firms that still hold the patents. As a buyer, you should be aware that unlicensed facilities are not always using the same formulas, techniques, and procedures that have been proven to create high-quality, durable, strong neodymium magnets.
Amazing Magnets will never sell, market, or use unlicensed neodymium magnets, and we can provide detailed supply chain information for every product we sell upon request. We’re committed to operating with integrity and transparency, and we want to provide our customers with only the best magnets available.
