Technical Information Magnetic Paint

DUPLI-COLOR Magnetic Paint is a water-based paint for indoor applications. The paint contains iron pigments, which allow to affix magnets on the painting.

The product offers a lot of applications in the most different fields in kindergarden, school, office, kids' rooms, etc.

As far as the paint has been applied in sufficiently thick coats, you can even re-coat it with any dispersion paint or repaper with a thin wallpaper - the magnetic properties will remain.

Overspraying with DUPLI-COLOR spray paints is also possible.

  • Efficiency:
    Depending on consistence and color of the ground and coat thickness 1 litre is sufficient for approx. 2 - 3 m² (2 coats)
  • Drying time (at 20°C, 65% relative air humidity):
    Thumb-proof at a wet film thickness of 100 µm: after 2 - 3 hours
    Dry to touch: after approx. 3 hours
    Coatable with itself: after at least 3 - 4 hours drying time
    Coatable with dispersion: after at least 6 hours drying time
    The drying time depends on surrounding temperature, air humidity and thickness of the applied coat.
  • Best working temperature:
    Room temperature, 15 - 25°C
  • Cleaning of tools: with water
  • Storage stability:
    1 year if appropriate storage provided (=10°-25°C, relative air humidity of max. 60%) in the unopened original container. Protect from frost!

Using instructions

Before use, carefully read and observe the warning texts on the label!

Preparation of the ground:

  • The ground should be smooth and absolutely dry.
  • Cover surrounding area carefully to protect it from paint splatters.
  • Completely remove wallpapers, which do not perfectly adhere to the wall.
  • Extremely absorbent surfaces should be pretreated with a dispersion primer.
  • To improve adherence, smooth, lacquered surfaces (e.g. doors) should be sanded before.

Please consider:

  • Magnetic Paint is not suitable for outdoor applications.
  • Do not use on objects which are exposed to humidity.


  • Stir up well before application. This is in order to spread the metal pigments in the paint evenly.
  • Do not mix the Magnetic Paint with any other paint or with water.
  • Carefully imbue the short-hair paint roller, as you are used from other latex paints, and apply the first coat.
  • Let the first coat dry for 3 – 4 hours.
  • Then apply the 2nd coat of Magnetic Paint. At a coat thickness of 100 µm (2-3 coats) the magnetic effect is sufficient for customary magnets.
  • To increase the magnetic effect, the surface can be painted in several coats, or use our super magnets. Order number see last page.
  • As soon as the coating is dry to touch (at least 6 hours), the Magnetic Paint can be coated with any latex paint in any colour or repapered with a thin wallpaper.
