Debunking Magnetic Product Myths


There are a lot of myths out there concerning magnetic products.

In this post, we will debunk the most common myths by discussing Smart Magnetic Paint and Smart Magnetic Plaster.

Check them out below.

Myth 1: Magnetic products can be ugly, and a dark colour

While many dislike the dark colour of magnetic paint, this is necessary as the dark colour is due to the magnetic particles in the paint.

Of course, you don’t need to keep it that way.

It is easy to apply a colour of your choice on top of the magnetic product and still keep its functionality. Or apply Smart Wall Paint in white or clear on top for added whiteboard functionality ?

Myth 3: Magnetic Products don’t work very well

Smart Magnetic Plaster has the strongest magnetic pull possible with 67% magnetite content.

Smart Magnetic Paint has 50% magnetite content. One of the benefits of Smart Magnetic Paint is that once the originally three coats have been applied, it is possible to increase the magnetic quality of the surface.

You can do this by applying additional coats though we recommend no more than seven.

Myth 3: The usefulness of magnetic products fades over time and it needs to be reapplied every few years
