This grade 5 alnico material is anisotropic, meaning it has a preferred direction of orientation. It has a holding force of 6lbs that is a result of its u-shaped design. By incorporating a u-shape, magnetic power is concentrated between the two poles of the magnet, resulting in highly increased strength compared to a bar magnet of similar material. The flat lateral surface makes it well suited to applications that require this shape.
