Welcome to the FAQs for Smarter Surfaces’ Super Magnetic Paint. Below we have outlined the answers to the most commonly asked questions. Remember that you can combine our Magnetic Paints with our Whiteboard Wallpaper or Paints to get a writable magnetic surface. Check out the Combine With section below to learn more.
How To Apply Super Magnetic Paint
Super Magnetic Paint can be applied by roller or brush onto any smooth surface. If using a brush, use a short pile (foam) roller to ensure a smooth finish.
Once dry, the surface can be painted over to conceal the grey colour (due to the magnetic properties in the paint).

Are there different colours available?
Smart Magnetic Products are available as Smart Magnetic Paint (55% magnetite) and Super Magnetic Paint (60% magnetite). Due to the magnetic particles, magnetic paints are mid-grey in colour. You can achieve the colour 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 colour.
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?
What type of magnets can be used with Super Magnetic Paint?

How To Use Super Magnetic Paint
Magnetic surfaces are typically used for planning, scheduling, posting, brainstorming, magnetic notice boards, magnetic walls plus lots more.
For best results, we recommend using neodymium magnets or strong rare earth magnets with your super magnetic surface.
