INSTALLATION INFORMATION


Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT MAGNETS SHOULD I USE?

For best results, we recommend using Neodymium (aka rare earth) magnets with a force of at least N42. Coated magnets are least likely to scratch IdeaPaint surfaces. We include 6 of these magents with each can.

WHAT KIND OF ROLLER COVER SHOULD I USE?

Best results are achieved with a 3/8” nap synthetic roller.

HOW MANY COATS OF IDEAPAINT™ MAGNETIC PRIMER DO I NEED TO APPLY?

IdeaPaint™ Magnetic Primer requires three heavy wet on wet coats. It’s important to apply the appropriate amount of primer for the necessary square footage–achieving wet mils of 5-6 mils, and avoiding sags and roller marks as you go.
