Product Description

Rustoleum Magnetic Primer has been manufactured as a base coat that attracts magnets. Rustoleum Magnetic Primer can be applied to a variety of surfaces, creating a fun and unexpected way of hanging notes, photos and general magnets.

This product is a high performance dark grey coloured coating that transforms a regular surface to one that attracts magnets whilst retaining a look that is seemingly normal.

Best Uses

Rustoleum Magnetic Primer works best when 2-3 coats are applied, and two coats of topcoat are applied afterwards for maximum magnetic attraction. Flat, Strong or low weighing magnets work best at adhering to the surface and can hang from a wall or surface that looks normal.


Rustoleum Magnetic Primer can be applied using brush or roller, and offers an extremely fast drying time of just 1 hour that can be recoated after 4 hours. Rustoleum Magnetic Primer has a coverage rate of 1.7m2 per litre and has a dark grey finish.

Surface and Environment

Rustoleum Magnetic Primer should be used for interior applications only, onto surfaces made out of wood, metal, masonry, plaster or drywall. Once applied, you will be able to overcoat the surface with any latex paint for a decorative finish that magnets can cling to.

Technical Details


  • Can be overcoated with emulsion or gloss.
  • Top coat with any latex paint or even Chalkboard paint.
  • Application of more than 2 coats of topcoat will reduce effectiveness of magnets. 
  • Indoor use only.
