Metal Oxidation and Magnetism
Date: May 2006
Are there any metals that do not rust/oxidize
and at the same time are attracted to magnetic fields/magnets?
Stainless steel does not rust, but is not attracted by magnets,
whereas iron is attracted by magnets but rusts very easily.
Lanthanide magnets are very strong and do not readily oxidize. A
search on the term: "rare earth magnets" will give you suppliers.
