JVCC MAG-02 Magnetic Tape is a flexible magnet mounted on a thin 4.5 mil polyester film which has been coated on one side with an aggressive acrylic based pressure sensitive adhesive. The indoor/outdoor adhesive the tape is coated with is for bonding applications where outstanding adhesion, high shear and good solvent and UV resistance are required. The tape is supplied self-wound on a semi-bleached kraft paper liner. The magnet is comprised of a multipole one face flexible magnet (composite of strontium and/or barium ferrite particles oriented with a thermoplastic polymer matrix). These permanent magnets remain magnetized indefinitely if not subjected to a demagnetizing force. This tape is not returnable for this reason.
This magnet has a thickness of 60 mils as noted in the product specializations so is slightly under 1/16" in thickness. Through our own testing we have found when the surface area of a 2-1/2" long x 1" wide strip weighs up to 0.7 pounds it is attracted enough to MAG-02 to be held up. As such it would hold up heavier weight items better than the 1/32" thick MAG-01 Magnetic Tape we also sell; however it is not magnetic enough to work through a substrate like leather. Also as noted above JVCC MAG-02 is a single-faced multi-pole magnet so one side has a polarity and the other side is coated with an adhesive. The side with polarity would be attracted to ferromagnetic materials such as iron, nickel and cobalt. It would also be attracted to a magnet of the opposite polarity. The tape is NOT attracted to itself (it repels) since it would need a magnet of the opposite polarity to attract.
NOTE: if your magnetic tape curls when you try to apply it to your surface, this is due to being wound in a roll and has no effect on the magnetic properties or quality of the tape. Simply unwind and cut your piece from the roll, place under a weight (e.g.
