Product Description

Turn any wall into a magnet attracting space! Using our magnetic paint is easy and the innovative solution to transform the walls of your home or office into a fun, creative magnetic receptive surface. It rolls on to any flat surface with ease, just like paint you would buy at your local hardware store. Once you have applied the Magnamagic® Magnetic Receptive paint and are ready for your topcoat then feel free to use any type of paint. You will find that most paints work well with our magnetic receptive primer. Be sure to mix the paint thoroughly. After mixing, apply the paint using a foam roller for a smooth finish. Used as a primer, two or three coats of MagnaMagic magnetic paint are first applied. After drying you can cover the coating with any color paint of your choice. It's as simple as that. This product is child-safe and non-toxic/non-hazardous and low VOC durable latex paint Contains magnetic receptive particles, with a mildew resistant finish. Pale gray finish and easy to topcoat for vivid color. Interior / Exterior (with exterior paint as topcoat) 3 coats = 10 lb per sq in w/60 mil magnet strength Does not interfere with electronics Great results with sheet magnets How it works: When applied, this product gives the surface metallic properties that a magnet will stick to - just like a refrigerator door is not a magnet itself, but magnets will stick to it because it is metal. This works the same way, makes any wall surface into a magnet-attracting surface. Covers approx 100 sq ft. per gallon. Order is for ONE Gallon of magnetic paint. =Can be used with Chalk Board Paint - part # QCBP820=

Works quite well with magnets.

Now that i think i could have probably done fewer coats, but i did not want to deal with a left over paint so i used it all.

What makes this product and other magnetic paint work is the inclusion of iron powder in the paint.

Let me start by saying that I usually do not have the time to submit product reviews, but I decided to do so in this event to try to help provide others with valuable information on magnetic wall paint. When I started searching for a magnetic paint product I was shocked to see the spread in ratings for the various products. Some people would note that a product worked excellent while others would say that their application could not even hold a kitchen magnet. After much review I decided to purchase the Active Wall product since it overall had better reviews (albeit far less reviews) and it seemed to have less VOC's than other products.

As the product goes, let me state that the Active Wall paint works excellent for the purpose of creating a magnetic wall. Let me however clarify that if it is not applied correctly I could easily see this product not producing the results which I and others have experienced. In fact, after creating a magnetic wall, I am a firm believer that anyone who provided a poor rating in regards to the magnetic capabilities of this product did not take the time to correctly apply the product or had expectations above and beyond what any magnetic paint can provide. That said, after I completed my wall, I was able to easily hold up multiple sheets of paper using a ˝" x ˝" rare earth magnet. I was also able to hold up a cloth dinner napkin with the same magnet, and it seemed to have the capacity to hold even more. Going into this project my expectation was to create a wall that could hold my son's school projects and artwork so in this respect the Active Wall product has exceeded my expectations.

Yes, it works! Having read all the reviews about this product, I followed what seems to be best for this paint - multiple coats (I did five) and rare earth magnets. I've covered an area about 4' x 6' and still have about 1/3 to 1/4 gallon left.

* Rare earth magnets are key. Regular magnets are really weak on the painted wall. For instance, I tested a simple plastic electronic kitchen timer that sticks fine on the fridge and it wouldn't hold at all on the painted wall. Hanging greeting cards were flimsy too with regular magnets. But with the rare earth magnets, the difference was hugely noticeable. They're just a lot stronger. Buy them too if you plan on using this paint. Just be sure to read the warnings for these magnets - Apparently they're small enough to eat and since they're so powerful, small children have gotten really ill from ingesting them. It's not kid stuff.

I painted an entire wall with this. It went on easily. I applied 3 coats to the majority of the wall and all magnets stick. In the areas where I only put on 2 coats, only lightweight magnets work. The primer is very dark. I painted a medium blue over it and the wall looks great.

The wording is misleading in the description of the product, "just like a refrigerator door is not a magnet itself, but magnets will stick to it because it is metal."

I read all of the reviews. Did not order the other paint manufacturer because Active Wall had better reviews. I followed all of the warnings from the reviews on multiple webpages.

I added a skim coat to make the wall smooth, I sanded it very well and the wall was very very flat. I power mixed the paint every time I added the paint to the tray. (Washing the paint roller tray was neat because you see the small mettle fragments sink to the bottom of the sink and not do down the drain). I used a foam roller as instructed, a new one every coat after the appropriate dry time. Multiple coats and less than 75 square feet for the whole gallon.

Normal magnets do not stick very well. Light strong magnets will stick, but hold a sheet of paper, they will slide. One magnet works well (and I have tried many different types to see if one would work better than another). Sheet magnets work very well. Try to hang a picture with a sheet magnet. It covers too much. I had about 4 - 5 standard 8.5" X 11" sheets of copy paper hold with a 3.5" X 2" sheet magnet desisted for business cards. It held the first 4 sheets fine and started to slide on the 5th. I tried different areas on my 9' Wide my 7.5' Tall wall. I had the same result. The small magnets I bought from Amazon stuck to the wall. They came off very easy even though they were hard to pry apart. The problem is there is not enough surface area for a good connection. Takes four 1/4" high power magnets to hold one sheet. The wind from someone walking by will cause it so slide down.

I was REALLY bracing myself to be disappointed with this stuff. I had read so many reviews about how magnetic paint doesn't really work. I chose this brand because it had better reviews and the VOC's were WAY lower than the stuff you get at Home Depot. That was important to me, because I was painting with a 2 year old in the house. There were no harsh fumes to speak of, so that was great.

After just one coat, about half of the refrigerator magnets stuck, and after 3 coats, they all stuck and I could hang a baby announcement (on nice heavyweight card stock) with a regular magnet. Since I had almost a half gallon left at this point, I just did two more coats for good measure. :)

I think the key to this is what others have recommended: several thin coats, and definitely follow the instructions to go over the wet paint with the foam brush; this keeps it nice and smooth and eliminates any need for sanding. Overall, I had low expectations, and was thoroughly impressed.
