Product Description

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. How this 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. NOTE: Surface must be a flat surface, not textured. Best magnets for use with this product are rubber sheet type magnets, the plastic alphabet and number sets for children, etc.
IMPORTANT:
Follow exact directions for applying - do not try to coat more square feet than it is formulated for. To spread out the paint too thin or too far will result in NO magnetic properties."

Works as advertised, magnets stick without issue once it is thick enough.

That said, after I completed my wall, I was able to easily hold up multiple sheets of paper using a ˝" x ˝" rare earth magnet.

This product works great but you need to make sure that you follow the directions perfectly!

I purchased this same product in the 1 Gallon size, below is my review of the Active Wall 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.

After looking at the reviews for Rust-oleum Magnetic Latex Primer from Home Depot and Lowes I decided to go with the Magprime product (fewer reviews, but better). I put on three coats (this required 2 1-qt cans for an area about 5x6 ft), and then overcoated with 2 coats of regular latex wall paint (needed to cover the dark gray of the primer). I think the key with this stuff is to use rare earth or neodymium magnets, which are much stronger than regular magnets. I bought 3 20-packs of Magcraft 1/4 in cube magnets from Amazon. One of these little guys will hold up 5 sheets of copy paper on the painted wall (and many more on a fridge). I'm creating a wall of quickly changeable large photographs--saw it in Germany and thought it was a great idea. I recommend the cubes because they are easy to move around (compared to disks) and a small size because they are so powerful!Magcraft NSN0606 1/4-Inch Rare Earth Cube Magnets, 20-Count

Love love love this idea and product! My daughter wanted a wall that she could hang stuff on, so she got this paint as a gift. She painted it on and voila...instantly magnetic. The only down side would be if you had a light colored room...it would take several coats to cover, as it's dark grey. Fortunately, her room was already grey at the time. I just repainted to a slightly lighter color...it took 2 coats to cover and the wall seems to hold the magnets even better now. It's just a fun idea and I'm looking to do more areas of the house!

I was skeptical. The reviews I had read were mixed but also gave advice on how to make this primer work. I followed all of the guidelines as best I could (frequent mixing, smooth roller, multiple coats, rare earth magnets), and I had a strong magnetic surface when the primer coats were complete. However, the final guideline - only one coat of paint over the primer - was impossible. This primer is very dark - think chalkboard gray. It is very difficult to cover. I had to use 2-3 coats of paint over the top, which considerably weakened the magnetic effects. I can still get single sheets of paper to stay up when held by multiple rare earth magnets, but I had hoped for better.

My advice - if you have a lot of time to apply the primer carefully and have a very dark color scheme, you'll probably be successful. If you aren't interested in compulsively painting multiple smooth layers or don't intend to use battleship gray in the surface coat, you should save your time and money.

I bought this stuff for an art space where I sometimes hang my paintings.
We painted four coats of the paint.
I had hoped to be able to hang unframed works on paper without using tacks.
We tried it with those little high power magnets.
The bigger stuff tended to want to slide off the wall...
but the smaller stuff ( say 1' x 2' and smaller) seemed to stay up okay.
I also sometimes use magnetic sheets to make car magnets.
Those work really well on the paint.

I followed the directions on the can and my project turned out very nice. there was no foul fumey odor. the drawbacks are that this product is very thick and dries very quickly and was difficult to mix thoroughly. I suggest that if you draw a pattern on your wall like I did to keep it fairly simple because the thickness and quick drying makes it difficult to be precise with fine lines. I used the entire can which was at least a dozen coats because the closer I got to the bottom of the can, the more magnetic particles there were, therefore giving much more magnetic strength from the bottom contents. I feel that these particles sink down to the bottom very quickly no matter how much time is spent mixing. if I was to do my project over I would dump out half of the can and set it aside and use the bottom stronger magnetic portion, therefore skipping half a dozen coats to apply.
