For best results on applying your Round Disc Magnet, these are a few key areas that one should put in mind during the application stage:
- Find a metal surface which you wish to install the Round Disc Magnet and clean the surface by wiping it with a damp cloth. Let the surface dry for a few minutes.
- Lay the base on the surface. You can now store your metallic objects and tools using the round disc magnet. You can also use the disc magnet for other purposes or projects that require magnetism.
- You may also wish to use the adhesive dots that are included with the packaging. If the surface isn’t metallic, then the adhesive dots would be handy to allow the round disc magnet to be installed. If you are to use the adhesive dots, then make sure that the surface is clean and dust free. Simply peel off the adhesive liner and install it on the disc magnet before mounting the magnet on the surface.
Reminder: Magnets generally attract metals, but not all types of metals. Only "ferromagnetic materials" are attracted to magnets, and not all metals can be affected by the magnet's flux. Thus, contrary to popular belief, metals such as brass, aluminum, copper, gold, and silver will not be attracted to magnets.
Any ferromagnetic material can make magnets stick to them, firmly. Here are the most common ferromagnetic materials:
