Reance SF (U.S. Patent #6,707,361) from The Electrodyne Company Inc., combines magnetic strength of up to 5.0MGOe with high flexibility. The versatile material has the ability to hold very tight radiuses without cracking, breaking or losing any of its magnetic properties. It is said to be the first neodymium iron boron magnet to offer elasticity, with total elongation of up to 250%. The material can be produced as thin as .012 in., making it suitable for use in sensors and transducers as well as electronic products and devices, cordless power equipment, guitar pick ups, xerographic equipment.

It can be slit, drilled, die-cut or punched to customer specifications, allowing for prototyping and production quantities through the use of low cost tooling techniques.
