What is stainless steel magnetic board?
Our magnetic board is made from 430 grade stainless steel sheet, 0.9mm thick. Many grades of stainless steel are not magnetic, leading to the myth that stainless steel is not magnetic, and that if it is magnetic then it is not stainless steel. Grade 430 belongs to the ferritic family of stainless steels, meaning that the crystals in its structure are aligned in the same way as mild steel, and is and is therefore ferro-magnetic. While it will attract other magnets, it will not pick up other non-magnetic objects such as nails or screws.What is stainless steel magnetic board used for?
Better looking than mild steel sheets, our stainless steel magnetic board has a modern, clean look, with an attractive brushed finish. In addition, with it being made from stainless steel, it is far more resistant to corrosion than mild steel. Used for display boards, crafts and hobbies, it makes an ideal noticeboard and a modern replacement for the traditional pin board, using magnets rather than drawing pins. Unlike traditional noticeboards, stainless steel is very easy to keep clean, and has excellent hygiene properties. Our stainless steel magnetic boards can be used in the home, office, study, school, garage, or shed. The board will attract other magnets. Simply fix your notice, flyer or postcard to the board with your magnet. Or choose one of our own Round Magnet Packs, which come in a variety of different colours.Ordering stainless steel magnetic board

on the reverse side to ensure a good secure fit. We also supply cartridge or skeleton guns
if you need one too.

1. Our stainless steel magnetic board has the advantage of being very low maintenance. With just a little regular care it will retain its appearance for many years.
2. We recommend regular use of our Clean Line Steel Cleaner
, which polishes and protects in one easy action. Simply spray directly on to the board and polish with a clean cloth.
3. Avoid close contact with other metal objects that are not made of stainless steel, in order to avoid transfer of rust. Be careful with products that contain strong concentrations of chloride or bleach, as prolonged contact may damage the stainless steel. Wipe away any of these substances as quickly as possible.
