Is aluminum magnetic?

Aluminum is considered non-magnetic under normal circumstances. It is a paramagnetic material, which means it has a weak attraction to magnets. You can’t observe its magnetic properties in everyday experiences. For instance, you won’t see an aluminum sheet stick to a fridge magnet. However, when exposed to strong magnetic fields, aluminum can exhibit magnetism.

One thing is for sure, our magnetic business cards, are definitely magnetic and will stick to your fridge like nobody’s business.
