Rubber tape

Increases adhesive force in shear direction, self-adhesive, 10 x 5 cm
promptly deliverable


Prevents a magnet from sliding down in shear direction.
The self-adhesive silicone rubber tape increases the sticking friction between magnet and surface and thereby counteracts the diminished adhesive force in shear direction.
In general, the rubber tape can double or triple the adhesive force in shear direction. The attainable improvement depends on material combination and temperature. An exact calculation is therefore not possible.
The tape does not work with small or very thin raw magnets. The additional distance of 0,42 mm between magnet and surface may even lead to a lower adhesive force. Too strong magnets, on the other hand, may damage the silicone rubber coating.

... stick it to the magnet ...
... and now the shelf can hold twice or three times as much weight.
Here a test with a S-15-08-N: The adhesive force perpendicular to the surface is 6,7 kg. The adhesive force in shear direction is only 1 kg.
The rubber tape causes a noticeably higher friction: The S-15-08-N can now hold 2,7 kg in a sideways direction.
