Magnetic Paint - Everything you need to know about
Magnetic Paint !
What is it? Magnetic
Paint is a water-based emulsion paint which contains very fine iron
powder. What colour is Magnetic Paint?
Magnetic Paint is dark grey in colour, due to the iron powder.
Does Magnetic Paint come in any other colours?
No, Magnetic Paint only comes in grey due to the iron powder. This also
gives magnetic paint a slightly rough finish once applied. However you
can paint over it with any emulsion colour of your choice. This creates
a smoother finish and allows you to blend the magnetic paint surface
into your existing décor. Can I tint magnetic
paint? Adding another colour to the paint would dilute its
magnetic receptivity and it would not work. How
should magnetic paint be applied? With a regular roller or
brush. We recommend three coats and multiple coats will
increase the magnetic receptivity. Can I apply a
primer first? If you feel it is necessary to use a primer
then magnetic paint will apply easily over it. What
sizes are available and how much does it cover? MagPaint
Magnet Paint covers approximately 2 square metres with 1 litre of Magnet
Paint with three coats. So if you want to cover 5 square metres of wall
you need a 2.5 litre tin to give it three coats . How
does Magnetic Paint work? The iron powder in the paint
creates a surface to which you can apply magnets, allowing you to turn
virtually any wall in your home, school or office into an instant
magnetic display area. However this is an iron powder and is not as
magnetically receptive as a plain steel surface.
Does Magnetic Paint work with all kinds of magnets? No,
magnets that are too weak or too heavy will not stick. Lightweight or
large surface area magnets are ideal for this surface. So it is great
for displaying your magnet letters, fridge magnets or magnetic games but
not suited to holding stacks of notes or memos. Is
Magnetic Paint safe to use in my home? Yes, magnetic paint is
non-toxic and water-based. It does not contain lead and conforms to
environmental VOC regulations. Will
Magnetic Paint interfere with my computer? No, Magnetic Paint
itself is not a magnet. It has metallic, i.e. magnetic, properties that
create a surface to which you can apply magnets. It is safe to use in
your home, school or office and will not effect your computer, TV, video
or any other magnet-sensitive equipment.
