Neodymium–iron–boron magnets are able to ensure a magnetic flux with high maximum energy product also at miniaturized size. In the past, due to their marked corrosion in saliva they were unsuccessfully implemented in orthodontic systems. Thereby, we propose a multi-layered organic–inorganic coating able to supply anticorrosion resistance, wear resistance and durability to the whole assembly. We evaluated the influence on the magnetic force of commercial nickel plated and silanized Nd–Fe–B during aging time in synthetic Fusayama saliva.Two magnets based-micromagnetic simulations were performed in order to analyze the magnetic field generated which is linked to the magnetic force.Our key results underline that the proposed hybrid coating does not affect the magnetic force of Nd–Fe–B magnets, moreover, preventing corrosion degradation in aggressive solution. Thus the limiting aspects avoiding the use of Nd–Fe–B magnets for orthodontic and prosthodontic applications can be overcome by using silane agents as surface coating.
