Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint FAQ's

What is Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint?

Pro-Netic Magnetic chalkboard paint is a type of paint that combines magnetic properties with a chalkboard finish, allowing surfaces to be used both as a chalkboard for writing and drawing and as a magnetic board for holding magnets.

How does Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint work?

The paint contains tiny particles of iron or other ferromagnetic materials that create a magnetic surface. When applied to a wall or other surface, it allows magnets to stick to it. The chalkboard component allows the surface to be written on with chalk or chalk markers.

How many coats of Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint do I need?

Typically, 4 coats are recommended for lighter magnets and 8 for stronger magnets. The more coats you apply, the stronger the magnetic properties will be.

Do I need to prime the surface before applying Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint?

Apply direct on to walls and wood. On nonferrous metal use Coo-Var All Metals Primer.

Can I use Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint on any surface?

Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint can be used on a variety of surfaces, including walls, wood and metal. However, the surface should be clean, smooth, and properly prepared (primed if necessary) for the best results.

How do I clean a surface painted with Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint?

You can clean the chalkboard surface with a damp cloth or a chalkboard eraser. For stubborn chalk marks, a solution of water and mild soap can be used. Avoid using abrasive cleaners as they can damage the finish.

Can I repaint over Pro-Netic Magnetic Chalkboard Paint?

Yes, you can paint over it with a different paint if you no longer want a magnetic chalkboard surface. However, you may need to sand the surface to remove the magnetic particles and ensure a smooth finish for the new paint.
