Suitable Surfaces

Can I create a magnetic whiteboard on any surface?

Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint can be applied on almost any smooth surface including plaster, wallboard, concrete, wood and plastic, as long as the surface has been sealed before application. It is essential to prime the surface first with Smart White Primer or any good quality water based white primer if the paint is applied over plaster, dry wood or a very porous surface.

Why should I apply primers after applying the magnetic paint?

Primers help give a surface a smooth finish. Primers are also used to conceal the grey magnetic colour (due to the high iron content) of our magnetic products.

Can I paint onto wood with magnetic whiteboard paint?

Yes, ensure that the surface is smooth before application, fill any holes with a filler and then apply Smart Magnetic Paint followed by the primer and whiteboard paint. Sand lightly after each coat of magnetic paint and primer.

Can I paint over wallpaper with Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint?

Yes, you can apply Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint over a smooth wallpaper only. Do not apply over a textured wallpaper. Apply Smart Primer in clear or white if the wallpaper is porous.
