More magnetic receptive solutions available!

What is a magnetic receptive material?  


A magnetic receptive material is not a magnet but has the capabilities to receive a permanent magnet and flexible magnetic sheeting. It is a combination of two products: A magnetic receptive material & a magnetic sheeting (or permanent magnet).  Since the magnetic receptive material is flexible and doesn’t need any glue, there are many economical aspects to it.  The most common application is interchangeable graphic systems (placed on walls, displays and any hard surface).

For example, you might choose to apply an adhesive back flexible magnetic sheeting to a hard surface (a display panel, a large wall, etc.) so the face of the display becomes magnetic.  Then you may print on a magnetic receptive material in wide format (easier to print than a magnet because it is wide and doesn’t have magnetic properties) to create large panels that will be applied onto the face of the display (that is now magnetic).  Depending on the magnetic material used (regular or high energy strength) and the thickness, you will be able to add many layers of the magnetic receptive material onto the display to create signs.


What are the new options available?


1) Adhesive back magnetic receptive whiteboard

We already had two amazing dry erase solutions in two different thicknesses (0.012’’ & 0.020’’).  Now to save even more, instead of applying a magnetic sheeting onto a wall, you have the same two products available with adhesive backing:

Please note the adhesive is permanent (and not removable).  Once applied onto a wall it will be magnetic receptive and dry erase.  In conference rooms or classrooms to make a magnetic receptive whiteboard this can be used.


2) Magnetic receptive paint

Instead of applying a magnetic sheeting with adhesive back to the wall (or surface) you may apply a magnetic receptive paint: MRP1

One gallon covers the equivalent of 2 coats over an area of 100 square feet.  Once applied our receptive paint can be painted over with the colour of your choice.

We recommend applying a magnetic sheeting magnetized on both sides prior to use with another magnetic receptive media.  Here are a few options:

3) Printable retail counter pad material with magnetic receptive capability

It holds in place with micro-suction technology while providing a shock absorbing inter liner that cushions objects that are placed on the pad.

The top surface is a printable high quality PET substrate that withstands heat and abrasion.  The back of the pad has a layer of micro-suction technology that holds the pad in place with up to 220 lb/sqft of slide-resisting holding force.

A removable release liner protects the back and makes printing easy.  It is then removed before the pad is applied to the application surface.  The pad is easily replaced and completely washable and re-usable.

It leaves no residue nor does it damage the surface when removed.  It is easily installed by retail store personnel and is the perfect economical solution for retail counter and table pad requirements.

Protect your retail counter and table surfaces while you present your message directly to your customer with elegance and style.

This material is available in rolls 0.013’’ thick, 50’’ wide and suitable for UV, Latex and solvent ink systems.
