How To Apply Mangetic Plaster?

What is Magnetic Plaster?
Smart Magnetic Plaster is a pre-mixed, two coat solution that can be applied by professional and non-professional users.
Can a heater be used to speed up the drying process?
A heater can be used for the first coat if needed but for the second coat it’s best to just let it dry naturally to make sure it won’t crack.
How to protect your home/office from plaster dust.
Ideally you should cover the furniture in the whole room as dust can cover your furniture when you are sanding the wall. Otherwise you can clean the furniture after the application.

What colour is magnetic plaster?
Our magnetic products include magnetic paints and magnetic plaster. Due to the magnetic particles in the Smart Magnetic Plaster, Super Magnetic Paint and Smart Magnetic Paint, these products are dark in colour.

Alternatively install any wallpaper or digital print on top of the plaster for a design and pattern of your choice.

Does Smart Magnetic Plaster affect pacemakers?
