How To Apply Super Magnetic Paint

Once dry, the surface can be painted over to conceal the grey color (due to the magnetic properties in the paint).

Product Range

What color is Super Magnetic Paint?

Smart Magnetic Products are available as Smart Magnetic Paint (55% magnetite), Super Magnetic Paint (60% magnetite) and Smart Magnetic Plaster (75% magnetite). Due to the magnetic particles, magnetic paints are mid-grey in color. You can achieve the color of your choice by painting over the magnetic coating with normal paint. We recommend applying a white water based primer (such as Smart White Primer) before applying your desired color.
Alternately install a wallpaper or digital print in the pattern or design of your choice, on top of Super Magnetic Paint. We recommend you choose a thin product to go on top, as a thicker or deeper topcoat might affect magnetic performance

Are there different sizes available?

Super Magnetic Paint is available in a 2.5L tin weighing 6Kg. This will cover an area of 65 sq. feet with 4 coats.

Magnets

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

Suitable Surfaces

Can Super Magnetic Paint be applied on any surface?

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

How to thin out thick magnetic paint?

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 5%-10% water to the tin and stir in thoroughly.

Priming & Sealing

Do I need a primer on my walls before applying Super Magnetic Paint?

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

Why should I apply primers after applying Super Magnetic Paint?

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