As electronic devices are miniaturized, achieving the desired performance of rare-earth magnets is challenging. As the magnets get smaller, the coating that protects them from the environment limits the strength of their magnetic field. To increase performance, Xtalic replaced the magnet’s coating with XTALIUM™ material. The thinner XTALIUM coating provides greater magnetic transparency, eliminates rare-earth etching during the plating process, and improves corrosion resistance. With XTALIUM-plated magnets, small electronic device can produce higher performance for audio and other features that use magnets.
