Samarium cobalt magnet is a rare earth magnet. It is made of samarium, cobalt, and other metal rare earth materials through proportioning, melting into an alloy, crushing, pressing, and sintering. Due to its excellent properties, such as very good coercivity, good temperature stability (the maximum use temperature is 250 to 550 ℃, and the Curie temperature is from 700 to 800 ℃), Samarium Cobalt Magnet enjoys a wide range of applications. In this article, let’s take a look at the common applications of Samarium Cobalt Magnets.
Although Samarium Cobalt Magnets are not as powerful as super-strong Neodymium Magnets, they do have some significant advantages. For example, compared with Neodymium Magnets, Samarium Cobalt magnets work over a wider range of temperatures and have superior temperature coefficients and greater corrosion resistance.

The Application of Samarium Cobalt Magnets in the Military
Samarium Cobalt Magnets are not only widely used in our daily lives, but also in the military. In modern wars, air supremacy is one of the keys to victory in the battle. However, the aircraft is easily detected by the enemy’s radar during the flight, which is very dangerous. In order to avoid the detection of enemy radars, a special magnetic material—absorbing material, such as a samarium cobalt magnet, can be coated on the surface of the aircraft, which can absorb the electromagnetic waves emitted by the enemy radars so that the radar electromagnetic waves are rarely reflected. Therefore, the enemy radar cannot detect the radar echo, and cannot detect the aircraft, so that the aircraft achieves a stealth purpose.
