Disc Magnets

  1. Apr 18, 2014 #1
    Hey guys,
    It has been a while since I've done anything to do with magnetism and was wondering if I covered one side of a disc magnet is a non magnetic glue, would this weaken the polarity of this side? And the more layers of glue I 'paint' on, the weaker this side of the magnet is.
    In the overall picture I would like to attach 2 of these to each other via the depolarized side and have a 'magnet' that is overall one pole. (Or as close to it as possible!)

    Is this idea way off the mark or is it possible. Or is there a better way to go about it.

    This isn't going to work as you want it to. Also, I posted more to your 'sticky' thread in General Physics.
