    Smart Magnetic Paint Questions & Top Tips


    Welcome to the FAQs for Smarter Surfaces' Magnetic Paint. Below we have outlined the answers to the most commonly asked questions. Remember that you can combine our Magnetic Paint together with our Whiteboard Paint to get a writable magnetic surface. Check out the Combine With section below to learn more.


    • How To Apply Magnetic Paint

      Smart Magnetic Paint can be applied by roller onto any smooth surface. Once dry, the surface can be painted over to conceal the grey colour (due to the magnetic properties in the paint).


      How do I apply Smart Magnetic Paint?


    • Priming & Sealing

      Do I need to prime the surface before applying Smart Magnetic Paint?

      Only very absorbent surfaces should be treated with a primer before application.

      Why should I apply primers / sealers after applying Smart Magnetic Paint?

      Primers and Sealers help give a surface a smooth finish. Another reason a primer is used is to conceal the grey colour (due to the magnetic particles) of our magnetic paint.

    • Suitable Surfaces

      Can Magnetic Paint be applied on any surface?

      Smart Magnetic Paint can be applied to almost any smooth surface. For best results, sand and fill areas as required.

      My Magnetic Paint seems thick, can it be thinned?

      In most cases your magnetic paint should not need to be thinned. From time to time, during transportation, the magnetic paint can settle. If you need to thin the paint to help during application, add 10% water to the tin and stir in thoroughly.


    • How To Use Magnetic Paint

      Magnetic surfaces are typically used for planning, scheduling, posting, brainstorming, plus lots more.
      For best results, we recommend using neodymium magnets or strong rare earth magnets with your smart magnetic surface.

    • Magnets

      What type of magnets can be used with Smart Magnetic Paint?

      Neodymium or rare earth magnets should be used. Check out our Smart Neo Magnets here.
      Note: ordinary household magnets are not suitable.

    • Product Range

      Are there different colours?

      Smart Magnetic Products are available as magnetic paint (50% magnetite) and magnetic plaster (67% magnetite). Due to the magnetic particles, magnetic paint is mid-grey in colour. However you can achieve the colour of your choice by painting over with normal paint. We recommend applying a white water based primer (such as Smart White Primer) before applying your desired colour.
      Alternately install a wallcovering or digital print in the pattern or design of your choice, on top of magnetic paint. We recommend you choose a thin product to go on top, as a thicker / deeper topcoat might affect magnetic performance.

      Are there different sizes?

      Smart Magnetic Paint is available in a 3 sq. metre (32 sq. feet) tin and in a 10 sq. metre (107 sq. feet) tin.

      Full health & safety guidelines are printed on the label of every Smarter Surfaces product. Please read these before application.
