Magnetic paint what is it and what can you do with magnetic paint.

I don’t think many people have ever heard of magnetic paint.

The paint is also not well known among the people.

How to apply magnetic paint

The paint adds magnetic properties to a surface.

this surface
plain can be a wall, plastic, doors, windows and so on.

You do have to use a multi-primer on some surfaces.

What you can also do is take a wall paint and add iron dust to it.

Of course, the paint is not as strong as steel with a magnet.

But soon a few copies get stuck to the magnets.

So magnetic paint is for holding papers to your wall or something else by means of magnets.

A paint ideal for blackboards

Magnetic paint is therefore extremely suitable for blackboards.

If you want to make one at home, you can easily do it yourself.

You make a wooden frame and make a wooden plate behind it.

The first thing to do is degrease well.

Never forget that or you won’t get a good bond.

You can degrease with an all-purpose cleaner.

There are many all-purpose cleaners for sale such as ST. Marcs, B-clean or Dasty van de Wibra.

If you want to be sure of your case, first pre-treat the plate with a primer.

When the primer has hardened, sand it lightly and make it completely dust-free.

After that you can apply the paint.

Apply at least two   layers of magnetic paint.

And so you made a blackboard.

After this you buy some magnets and you’re done.

You can buy this magnetic paint in hardware stores and via the internet.

So my question to you now is: Which one of you has ever worked with magnetic paint?
