How to apply

Prepare the Surface

Remove any uneven or peeling areas of paint before sanding the surface, using fine sandpaper to give the smoothest possible surface. The area to be painted must then be cleaned to remove any dust and grease using a clean, damp cloth. Mask off the areas around the surface you are painting to avoid getting stray paint on adjoining walls, ceilings, skirtings and fixtures.

Prime the Surface

Apply directly on top of existing emulsion. Irregular or highly absorbent surfaces such as new plaster will require a suitable primer before painting. Surfaces such as glass, wood, metal or plastic should all be primed before FerroPaint® is applied.

Prepare Equipment

FerroPaint® should be applied using a short nap roller that has had any loose fibres removed. It is recommended that a new, clean tray is used to avoid any contamination of the paint. Mix FerroPaint® thoroughly for 3-5 minutes to ensure all the iron particles are fully mixed in with the paint. Never mix FerroPaint® with another paint.


Apply FerroPaint® to your roller and paint evenly on the surface, in straight, vertical lines. You should avoid using brushes and overlapping the paint where possible. Apply 3 coats, allowing 4 hours drying time between each coat. Less than 3 coats will reduce the magnetic attraction. Leave the final coat for 24 hours before applying your desired top coat of emulsion.
