Priming & Sealing

Why should I apply primer before applying Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint?

A primer helps give a surface a smooth finish. Secondly, they act to ‘seal’ a surface. This means that when you apply Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint on a surface that has been primed, the properties within our whiteboard paint will stay on the wall rather than being absorbed into the wall. In summary, using a primer or sealer means you will get a smoother surface with optimum write-on-wipe-off functionality.

What type of heater can be used to speed up the primer’s drying process? Can an infrared lamp be used?

A normal fan heater can be used to speed up the drying process. An infrared lamp can also be used but it can’t be placed too close to the surface.

Can magnetic whiteboard paint be applied on any surface?

Smart Magnetic Whiteboard Paint can be applied to almost any smooth surface (glass, metal, concrete, wood, etc). For a coloured magnetic and whiteboard surface, please choose our magnetic whiteboard paint in clear, for a glossy white finish please use our magnetic whiteboard paint in white.
