Includes a pair of Nitrile gloves to protect your hands from this fascinating but potentially incredibly messy hydrocarbon based magnet responsive solution. It also includes a pipette to transfer the ferrofluid from the bottle to a container to do your experiments.
Magnametals are pleased to confirm that they have 'educational affiliate status' with Ferrotec (USA) Corporation, the world leader in ferrofluid technology for the last 50 years.
Ferrofluids are a unique class of material. A ferrofluid is a stable colloidal suspension of sub-domain magnetic nano particles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 100Å (10 nm), are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid.
Ferrofluid is an amazing material that can be used to visually explain magnetism in unique, exciting ways. It can be a very effective educational tool. With this in mind, Ferrotec offers the EFH Series of Ferrofluids for educational markets.
Ferrotec ferrofluids are optimized to maximize performance in specific applications and environments, and the EFH series is no exception. Ferrotec’s EFH Series Educational Ferrofluids are specifically designed for use in classrooms, schools, museums, as well as the home magnetic field enthusiast. EFH Series ferrofluids feature strong magnetic properties that make it easier to visualize the magnetic patterns.
