What is it? - Magnetic Paint is a water based latex paint mixed with a very fine iron powder.  

What color is it? – It’s a dark gray color due to the iron powder in the paint.

How should it be applied? – With a foam roller or brush – BUT, a foam brush will yield a smoother finished surface.  

Can it be applied directly to drywall?  We recommend that the drywall be sealed with a primer prior to applying the Magnetic Paint.

How many coats?  We recommend at least two coats of the Magnetic Paint with two finish coats of a good quality interior paint.

Will it have a texture?  Yes, the paint will have a slightly textured feel to it due to the iron powder in the paint.  Customers can use a Scotch Brite green scrub pad to go over the surface lightly to make it a smoother surface (not too much – you don’t want to sand the iron off the wall or the magnets will not stick).

Does it work with all magnets? – No, magnets that are too heavy won’t stick, the flat type of refrigerator magnets work best.

How does it work? – The iron powder in the paint creates a thin magnetic receptive surface.

Is there any lead in it?  - No, the iron powder is what makes it magnetic receptive.

Can I tint the color or is it available in any other colors?  No, adding paint would dilute it – it is only available in dark gray, BUT it can be painted over in any color.

Is it safe to use in a home? Yes, it is an acrylic, latex, water-based paint.  It contains no lead, and conforms to environmental VOC regulations and ASTM #D4236.  Once applied and dry, it is as safe as any other surface in your home.

Will it interfere with computers? No, the paint itself is not magnetic.  It has iron powder that creates a magnetic receptive surface for a magnet to stick to, just like a refrigerator door.  It is safe to use in a home or office and will not interfere with computer equipment or cell phones.

Can I put Chalkboard or Dry Erase Paint on top of the Magnetic Paint?  Yes.  We recommend that after you apply each coat of Magnetic Paint, let it dry, and then go over it with a Scotch-Brite green scrub pad to make the surface as smooth as possible.  Remember that the surface of blackboards and dry-erase boards are perfectly smooth and our paint (even when smooth) still has a slight texture (almost like the smoother side of an emery board).  As a result, you may need to rub a little harder to wipe the chalk or dry erase marker marks away.  Also, please note that we do not manufacture either the Chalkboard Paint or the Dry Erase Paint and cannot attest to the long term durability of these products.

How much does it cover?

A gallon covers 100 square feet with 2 coats and weighs 22 lbs.

A quart covers 25 square feet with 2 coats and weighs 6 lbs.

A pint covers 12.5 square feet with 2 coats and weighs 3 lbs.
