Magnetic paint

The magnetic paint allows any surface to attract magnets. Thanks to a ferromagnetic layer, even plastic or wood surfaces -that usually are not able to attract magnets- take on the typical physical properties of a magnet.

The extraordinary effect of the magnetic paint made by Cromas is due to the presence of particles of iron and magnetite without specific orientation. This makes possible to attract magnets from every direction. Clearly, more layers of paint are applied and more the magnetic effect increases, but usually two or three layers are enough to achieve the desired effect.

The magnetic paint is only available in the magnetite color, since the addition of pigments in the paint itself would reduce the ferromagnetic force. For the same reason it is not recommended to apply a colored paint above a layer of magnetic paint.
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.
