Magnetic Field Viewer Gel

Magnetic Field Viewer Gel

Same flat viewer material that is in the viewer card but larger (full 12" x 12") and without the lamination. Can be re-used over and over. Can be cut to custom sizes with a scissors, bent or rolled. For DC magnetic fields only.

Paper-thin and highly flexible, this viewer uses micro-encapsulation of colloidal Nickel to reveal magnetize material. In the encapsulation process, colloidal Nickel particles suspended in the slurry become engulfed within gelatinous membranes. A 2-mil layer of the magnetically sensitive slurry is bonded to a 5-mil sheet of plastic film and allowed to dry. After complete drying, the particles maintain freedom of movement within the gelatinous membranes.

When a DC magnetic field is applied to the finished film, the Nickel particles congregate in alignment with the flux lines emanating from the DC magnetic source. This clumping of nickel particles causes a darkened appearance in the film exactly where the magnetic field is impinging on the film. As a result, an exact two-dimensional image or impression of the magnetic pole or pole pattern (if there are more than one) is produced. This image is easily erased once the film is removed from the magnetic source and the nickel particles are allowed to freely re-disperse within their gelatinous cells. A common bar magnet can be swiped across the film to ensure complete erasure of the previous image, or by reapplying the film to another magnetic source the new image produced will completely replace the old one.

Because of the small size of the colloidal Nickel particles, the film can detect fields as low as only a few gauss and still produce a clear image.
    

Due to the film's high flexibility, it easily conforms to magnetic surfaces with high degrees of concavity and convexity. Also, because the film is so thin and can be cut down to practically any size without losing its properties, it can be used in tighter places inaccessible to the bulkier, unalterable devices. Finally, since there are no moving or electronic parts, the film never needs maintenance or repair.
