ZIP-GRIP is the trade name used exclusively by The Magnet Source to describe our quality flexible magnetic sheeting and strip products.

We call it "ZIP" for our speedy delivery and "GRIP" for its magnetic strength. Made in the USA by quality manufacturers and stocked, processed and distributed world-wide from our Ohio processing facility; this material is engineered for maximum versatility and reliability.

What is Behind the ZIP-GRIPT Name?

  • Massive stock
  • Speedy delivery
  • Competitive pricing
  • Precision processing by skilled operators
  • Ability to slit, cut, score cut, and die cut
  • Knowledgeable, friendly customer service people
  • Years of experience in the magnet industry
  • Low minimum order requirements
  • And a desire to be your best source in the magnetic field!

How are Flexible Magnets Made?
A dry mixture of ferrite powder and rubber polymer resin is mixed, calendered and ground; then formed either by extrusion (for magnetic strip) or rollers (for magnetic sheeting). The material is then magnetized, laminated with vinyl or adhesive, cut to size, rolled onto a core, and boxed for shipment.

When is Flexible a Good Choice?
Flexible magnets are the least expensive by volume and most pliable permanent magnet material when compared to ceramic (ferrite), alnico or rare earth magnets. They perform well in a wide variety of simple applications for home, school, shop and office. They are lightweight, flat, easy to print on and easy to cut with scissors, knife or die. Also, they are ideal for advertising specialties and lightweight holding applications.



Attributes of ZIP-GRIPT Flexible Magnets

The USA produces the largest volume and the highest quality flexible magnet material in the world. Compare attributes when comparing prices.

Powerful - ZIP-GRIPT is supersaturated with magnetism in a multiple pole magnetization pattern, so its magnetic strength is evenly distributed across the surface. The thicker the material, the greater the strength. Permanent magnetism is guaranteed as long as the material is not subjected to a demagnetizing force.

Durable - ZIP-GRIPT is easy to maintain and safe for finished surfaces. It contains no oils or plasticizers that can cause cracking, drying out or surface migration.

Safe - The material is lead-free and barium-free, making it a non-toxic substrate that is safe to work with.

Machinable - ZIP-GRIPT is easily drilled or cut with scissors, knife, die or punch to fit your application.

Temperature Range - ZIP-GRIPT is designed to withstand continuous exposure to temperatures from -40ºF to 160ºF without demagnetizing.
