Magnetic Paint in a tin for Walls and Surfaces

magnetically receptive surface, Magnetic Paint

Magnet-Paint has a strong magnetic pull and can be painted onto almost any smooth surface to create a magnetically receptive display. Attach notes, memos and pictures to your surface with magnet attachments. Use the product on it's own for magnetic only, or pair with other products to create a writable magnetic area. The magnetic paint contains metallic, magnetic particles that can be used to transform the wall into a magnetic pin board when painted. After the paint has dried, you can attach photos, papers, sticky notes, and other not-too-heavy objects to the wall using magnets. You can use different magnets for this, such as refrigerator magnets, which are available in countless shapes, colors and designs. The magnets must be strong enough to stick to the magnetic paint and support the objects own weight. Buy now!

Use in offices, classrooms, corridors, communal areas, across entire floors and buildings. Discover how magnetic writable surfaces can be used to transform the way you plan, brainstorm, teach and learn.

On magnetic paint, magnets develop only a fraction of their maximum adhesive force. Therefore, use large enough neodymium magnets, especially cubes and discs. Magnets in steel pots and ferrite magnets are not suitable for magnetic paint. The right magnets and realistic expectations regarding adhesive force can make a wall painted with magnetic paint a fun and practical space.

Main Product Details:

  • Child-friendly
  • Can be overcoated with blackboard paint or SketchPaint for a writeable surface
  • Great for offices, kitchens, staff rooms, schools and nurseries
  • Non-toxic; VOC and lead-free
  • Does not generate any (magnetic) radiation

Apply Magnet Paint to any internal surface to create a magnetic area that is ideal for offices, kitchens, workplaces and schools. Magnet Paint can be applied indoors on any surface such as walls, doors, kitchen cabinets, furniture, etc, (as long as there is a good pre-treatment of the substrate) to create convenient noticeboards, storage options, or playrooms for children.

Any type of magnet can be used on Magnet Paint, from fridge magnets, foil magnets and magnet tape to hold project notes and task sheets, important reminders and photos in home and work office spaces, staff rooms, kitchens, etc. Schools and nurseries can also use MagPaint’s Kids Magnet Sets for creative play with letters, numbers, vehicles, smileys and animals.

A dark grey water-based wall paint for indoor use, Magnet Paint is based on an acrylate binder with fillers, (ferromagnetic) pigments and additives. A wall that has been treated with a few layers of Magnet Paint attracts (neodymium) magnets. After applying a minimum of three layers, the Magnet Paint can be overcoated with any conventional type of water-based wall paint, such as emulsion, blackboard and whiteboard paints, or thin wallpaper.

The theoretical pulling force of a Ø29 mm Neodymium magnet on a fully applied system according to consumption is approx. 2400 N/m².


  • 0.5 litre - Covers approximately 1m² with two to three coats - ideal for school, home and office use, or anywhere you need a small magnetic work or play area.
  • 1 litre - Covers approximately 2m² with two to three coats - ideal for school, home and office use, or anywhere you need a reasonable sized magnetic work or play area.
  • 2.5 litre - Covers approximately 5m² with two to three coats - ideal for school, home and office use, or anywhere you need quite a large magnetic work or play area


Which magnets should I use with magnetic paint?

  • This depends on what it is you are trying to hold. If you are looking to hang something lightweight like photos or posters, then our range of magnets for noticeboards are ideal, or small self-adhesive magnets can be stuck to the back of the item you are looking to hang. If you are looking to hold picture frames or similar items then our high-powered magnetic sheet or magnetic tape should be sufficient. If you are unsure, contact our team today.

  • What can I hang on a wall painted with magnetic paint?

  • Magnetic paint is best used for hanging lightweight items that would ordinarily be mounted using pins or tack. Or for creating an interactive play wall in a child's bedroom.

  • How much weight can magnetic paint hold?

  • This depends very much on the number of coats applied, the type of the magnets used, the size of the magnet used and the texture of the surface wall. At first4magnets, we would not recommend attempting to hang anything heavier than 1kg.

  • How thick should you apply magnetic paint?

  • At least three coats should be applied. The more additional coats applied, the stronger the magnetic attraction will be. The paint is best applied with a short nap roller. For a smoother surface, apply quite thickly and then smooth off with a trowel.

  • How much does one tin cover?

  • Applying three coats, every litre will cover 2sqm.

  • What surfaces can magnetic paint be applied to?

  • Magnetic paint can be applied directly over the top of an already painted surface or on to any surface that you would ordinarily paint with regular water-based emulsion.

  • Do you need special tools to apply it?

  • No special tools are required. Although for best results it is recommended that you use a short nap roller.

  • Can you apply a top coat over magnetic paint?

  • Yes, as the magnetic paint dries a dark grey colour it is often necessary to apply a top coat of your chosen colour. You can apply your chosen top coat after 24 hours.

  • What is the shelf life of the product?

  • Minimum of six months when stored unopened in temperatures between 5 deg C and 20 deg C.

  • Will it affect my Wi-Fi connection, phone signal or other electronic devices?

  • No, the magnetic paint will not affect any wireless signals in your house or any other electronic devices.
