Types of magnetic paint and tips for its use
The magnetic paint is available in two variants: a solvent-based or water-based.
The solvent-based type is suitable for professional use with airbrush. It is recommended to use a nozzle with a diameter of 2.5 mm. Suitable for painting large surfaces, the solvent-based magnetic paint can be used for interior or exterior advertising panels.
The water-based type is designed for handmade, private use, or for exhibition stands. The paint is applied with an airbrush, roller or a brush. In the case of the application using a roller or a brush, it could be necessary to apply several coats because of the thin thickness of each layer. This type of paint is also suitable to paint walls or sections of walls.
80 microns thickness are enough to obtain a good ferromagnetic effect. It is clear that, in order to obtain the maximum from this paint, it is recommended to use magnets of good quality. It transforms the surface that you want in a magnet, for example to attach sticky notes and post-it. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Cromas' staff.
