Is there clear magnetic paint available?
Our magnetic products include Smart Magnetic Paint (55% magnetite) and Super Magnetic Paint (60% magnetite) Due to the magnetic particles, magnetic paint is mid-grey in colour. However 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 magnetic paint. We recommend you choose a thin product to go on top, as a thicker / deeper topcoat might affect magnetic performance.
Are there different sizes available?
What type of magnets can be used with Smart Magnetic Paint?
