What is MagPlast?

MagPlast Magnetic Plaster by FIRST4MAGNETS® provides ultimate flexibility to create interactive spaces, allowing you to transform any wall into a smooth and fully interactive magnetic surface, whilst preventing holes for nails or screws.

MagPlast is the highest magnetic receptive based product available and offers superior performance for holding a wide range of magnets. MagPlast magnetic plaster contains 95% metal powder and is a high-performance plaster that can attract magnets, combining durability with a secure hold. The plaster is manufactured as a dry powder, which can be mixed with water and easily applied to a wall.

Magnetic plaster is very easy to use and can be applied the same as standard plaster. Use regular plastering tools and sandpaper to produce a very smooth magnetic surface. It can be top-coated with latex paint for a magnetic-only surface, or why not try our whiteboard paint for a magnetic dry erase surface!

Once applied, MagPlast sets on walls within hours*

1. Measure the area

Measure the area you wish to cover, we suggest to use 2kgs of magnetic plaster per 1sqm (0.6sq. feet).

2. Prepare your surface

Clear the surface and make sure the surface is flat. Cover any edges, light switches or fittings with masking tape.

3. Mix the Plaster

Pour the magnetic plaster into a container, add 35% water and thoroughly mix it.

4. Apply Plaster

Using a trowel, apply 70% of the plaster to the wall evenly. After 1 hour, use the other 30% of plaster to apply a second coat and make sure the surface is evenly covered.

5. Dry and sand

Allow 24 hours for drying. Once dried, use sandpaper to sand the surface evenly until the surface is smooth.

6. Test it

Use a magnet to test the attraction force. Once it is up to standard, apply a final desired coat with either latex paint, whiteboard paint or blackboard paint.

WHAT CAN I HANG ON MAGNETIC PLASTER?

MagPlast is best used for hanging light to medium weight items that would usually be hung using small pins, tacks or nails such as prints, pictures, clocks and small mirrors can all be hung easily.

Heavier items like bookshelves and even TV’s have been hung on the plaster, but this will require a careful arrangement of magnets to achieve.

INSPIRATION

AROUND THE HOME

“I was so excited when the magnetic wall was finished, I couldn’t wait to get arranging. I knew from the start I wanted this to not be covered in random office paperwork, instead I wanted a space to collect ideas and inspirations. As a lifestyle and travel writer it is great to be reminded, when I am deep in picture editing and writing, that the world is still out there."

“First4Magnets were so helpful and recommended exactly the products I needed to match the look of my room. I chose brushed chrome skittle pot magnets and a selection pack for magnetic walls, including magnets in all sizes and magnetic tape. I really enjoyed using the tape to create my own magnets using maps and art prints. The Blackboard Paint from first4magnets creates a really dramatic backdrop, as well as another layer of arty fun!”

“The Magnetic Plaster is a complete game changer, especially from a design perspective. Having a magnetic wall opens up the possibilities for so many spaces, making gallery walls a doddle, simple to update and expand, giving children’s bedroom and playrooms a constant source of interactive play, no need for picture hooks, panel pins or drills, just grab some magnets and you’re away.”

WHAT MAGNETS TO USE

The magnets you need to use is dependant on what items you are trying to hold.

If you’re looking to hang something lightweight such as photos or posters, then our range of noticeboard magnets are ideal or even our small self-adhesive magnets can be attached to the back of items you’d like to hang.

If it's heavier items such as picture frames or similar items, then our high-powered magnetic sheets or tape are more often than not sufficient. Another alternative for hanging heavier items are our rubber-coated pot magnets as they increase the slide resistance of the magnet. If the item you’re wanting to hang is sliding down the wall then adding pieces of our flexible A5 neodymium magnetic sheets will increase the friction between your item and the wall.
