Resene Magnetic Magic - Magnetic base coating
Resene have launched a new magnetic base coating to allow customers to turn their walls into magnetic boards suitable for use with a wide range of magnets. With double the "attraction" of existing magnetic coatings, this magnetic coating is loaded with iron oxides for maximum magnetic effect.
Magnets can be hung directly onto the finished area once dry and cured. To hang a poster, picture or photo from your magnetic area, use self-adhesive magnetic strips applied to the back of the item. The weight of the item will determine the number and placement of the magnets. For maximum magnetic strength use rare earth magnets.
It's easy to turn any surface into a magnetic masterpiece.
Prepare and prime surface. Apply Resene Magnetic Magic in smooth full coats by brush (not suitable for large areas), Hi Solids roller sleeve or spray. Roller application will result in a slight orange peel effect. A minimum of 150 microns (two coats each at 6 square metres per litre) is required. Depending on application method, this may require more than two coats. The smoother the finish and the thicker the application, the stronger the magnetic effect will be. Once dry test your magnets on the Resene Magnetic Magic coating to ensure they adhere well before applying topcoats. If you wish to achieve a stronger magnetic effect apply an additional coat/s of product then retest with your magnets. Ensure you are happy with the magnetic effect before applying topcoats.
To avoid visible coating thickness differences between magnetic and non-magnetic areas, it is recommended that a complete wall or area be coated or that the edge of the magnetic area be decorated or framed to clearly delineate the available magnetic area.
Resene Magnetic Magic is designed to be overcoated and may become damaged if used as a magnetic board without topcoat protection.
Resene Magnetic Magic is ideal for use in all interior areas where a magnetic area is required to affix magnets. The inclusion of iron oxides means that the product is extremely heavy for its volume, so all product is packed into a 1L can size for ease of handling.
