Liquid Magic Wall Magnetic Paint is a water-based emulsion paint which contains very fine iron powder that can turn any wall or painted space into a magnetic play or work surface.
The possible uses in the home, classroom, conference centre and office are limitless, particularly if you have children around! Liquid Magic Wall Magnetic Paint is also child’s play to apply, as a normal emulsion or primer paint. If you’d like to jazz your new magnetic wall up, why not give it a coat of coloured paint on top?
What colour is it?
The paint is dark grey in colour, due to the iron powder.
Does it come in any other colours?
No, it only comes in grey due to the iron powder. This also gives the paint a slightly rough finish once applied. However you can paint over it with any emulsion colour of your choice. This creates a smoother finish and allows you to blend the magnetic surface into your existing décor.
Can I tint the paint?
Adding another colour to the paint would dilute its magnetic receptivity and it would not work.
How should it be applied?
With a regular roller or brush. We recommend a minimum of two coats and multiple coats will increase the magnetic receptivity.
Can I apply a primer first?
If you feel it is necessary to use a primer then our paint will apply easily over it.
What sizes are available and how much does it cover?
Our 0.473 litre kit covers approximately 1.2 sq. metres with two coats. The kit contains a foam brush, plus full instructions and some sample magnets to get you started.
The 0.946 litre tin covers approximately 2.3 sq. metres with two coats.
The 3.8 litre tin covers approximately 9.4 sq. metres with two coats.
How does it work?
The iron powder in the paint creates a surface to which you can apply magnets, allowing you to turn virtually any wall in your home, school or office into an instant magnetic display area. However this is an iron powder and is not as magnetically receptive as a plain steel surface.
Does it work with all kinds of magnets?
No, magnets that are too weak or too heavy will not stick. Lightweight or large surface area magnets are ideal for this surface. So it is great for displaying your magnet letters, fridge magnets or magnetic games but not suited to holding stacks of notes or memos.
Is Magnetic Paint safe to use in my home?
Yes, magnetic paint is non-toxic and water-based. It does not contain lead and conforms to environmental VOC regulations ASTM #D4236.
Will Magnetic Paint interfere with my computer?
No, the paint itself is not a magnet. It has metallic, i.e. magnetic, properties that create a surface to which you can apply magnets. It is safe to use in your home, school or office and will not affect your computer, TV, video or any other magnet-sensitive equipment.
