Storing Flexible Magnet

  • When not using flexible magnetic sheet, keep it in a clean, dry place.
  • Store rolled stock on end to keep it from developing flat spots.
  • Store rolled material on end with the printed or vinyl side out.
  • Stack flat magnet on a level surface. Avoid placing objects (such as cartons) on top that could damage the face; do not stack with magnetic
    sides facing each other.
  • Hang onto the cylinder the magnets are delivered in. It works well for storage. Alternatively, a PVC tube works well too.
    Preparing Magnetic-Receptive Surfaces
  • Before affixing magnetic sheet to a metal surface, be sure all surface paints, clear coats and waxes are cured (hardened).*
  • Clean the metallic surface and the magnet with mild detergent.
  • Wipe with a soft cloth, or allow to dry.

o *(Approximate curing times: paint—90 days; clear coat—60 days; wax—2 days.)

Applying Flexible Magnet

  • DO NOT use on surfaces with temperatures exceeding 140°F or temperatures below -15°F
  • Make sure the entire magnet is flat against the metal surface. Do not place over protrusions (molding, decals, pin striping, etc.), or concave areas. There must be NO air pockets.
  • The magnet itself should be at a room temperature of 60°F (16°C) or above when installed to achieve best results.
  • Do not apply magnet that has been curled with the magnet side out. The magnet may not attach properly to the metallic surface resulting in
    lifted corners or air gaps which will weaken its holding strength. Follow instructions for Storing Flexible Magnet.
  • If you place the magnet in the wrong position, completely remove the magnet from the surface and reaffix. Lift at sides and not at corners to
    remove. Do not pull the magnet across the surface, or it may stretch due to the resistance caused by the high magnetic strength.
GENERAL USAGE
  • When operating in extreme heat (like the desert in the summer), be extremely careful. Dark colored vehicles, especially on the fenders (with the engine heat coupled with solar heat) can have surface temperatures exceeding 140°F. It is especially important to remove the material daily when operating in extreme heat.
  • Exposure to cold weather will make the magnet more brittle so use caution when handling.
  • Be aware that long-term use on surfaces frequently exposed to sunlight (such as vehicles) can result in uneven fading of the surface because
    the magnet-covered area is shielded from ultraviolet rays.
  • Do NOT use on non-metallic body fillers, simulated wood grain siding and repainted surfaces.
  • This product will not work on aluminum and plastic surfaces.
    Cleaning Flexible Magnet
  • Remove the magnets at regular intervals. This is especially important in high heat environments.
  • Clean both the magnet and metal surface with mild detergent; wipe with a soft cloth or allow to air-dry.
  • With heavy off-road use, especially in wet conditions, some silt may work its way in around the edges. This will not result in any adhesion
    issues, nor will it scratch the paint. When cleaning the truck, rinse all loose dirt and sand off with a regular hose sprayer first. After the debris is
    off, then pull the magnet panels straight off of the truck. DO NOT DRAG them off.
  • Lay a towel or mat down on the concrete to clean each panel. It is not recommended you put them directly on the rough concrete. This can
    cause small bits of rock and sand to be embedded in the material and subsequently between the paint and the magnet when reapplied.
