More Info

What is MagnetPaint?

MagnetPaint is a water-based acrylic paint that can be painted onto almost any smooth surface to create a magnetically receptive display. Ideal for creating magnetic noticeboard areas in the home, in the workplace, or in the classroom.

Attach notes, memos and pictures to your surface with magnet attachments. MagnetPaint has a strong magnetic pull, and is extremely safe and easy to use.

MagntPaint has iron dust in its composition giving it a dark grey colour and slightly textured finish. It can be used as a primer under any paint or even wallpaper. When coupled with any emulsion, it will provide a magnetic surface of any colour. It can also be used with one of our writable paints to create magnetic whiteboard or blackboard areas.

Why Do I Need MagnetPaint?

  • Turn any surface into a magnetically receptive area
  • Use on walls, table tops, pillars, doors - anywhere with a smooth flat surface
  • Magnetic attachments stick to the surface
  • Perfect for sticking up notes, memo, photos etc
  • Paint over the top with any colour for a colourful magnetic wall
  • Pair with SketchPaint or Blackboard Paint for a writable surface
  • Safe and doesn't interfere with magnetic-sensitive equipment

How To Apply MagnetPaint

MagnetPaint is water-based and safe and easy to apply.

Surface preparation is crucial, the smoother the surface you apply the paint to, the better the end result you will get. Ensure that the surface is free of dust and grease, fill in any holes or imperfections, and ensure that the surface is non porous.

The paint is a one-component paint but does require a good mix before applying as the iron within the paint does sink to the bottom when the product is in storage.

Mix the paint well, paint your area and leave to dry.

How Much MagnetPaint Do I Need?

Tin Size Coverage
0.25 Litre (250 ml) 0.5
0.5 Litre (500 ml) 1m²
1.0 Litre 2m²
2.5 Litre 5m²
5.0 Litre 10m²

Paint products are sold in tins. The coverage is expressed in metres squared. To work out the area you need to cover, you can use the calculation below:
Length of area x Width of area = Square area

You can then purchase the correct number of tins required to cover this square area.

For example, if your wall is 2.4m high x 3m wide

  • Square area = 7.2 Square metres
  • You would need 1 x 5 Litre tin, as each tin covers 10
