Wide-format applications for magnetic material includes everything from P.O.P. displays, vehicle signage, safety signage, changeable signs and even building graphics (as long as the building face is metal-based).
- To guard against migration, moisture and dirt buildup between the magnet and the metal surface, remove the magnet at regular intervals. Clean both the magnet and metal surface with mild detergent, wipe with a soft cloth and allow to air-dry. (For vehicle-mounted signs, remove and clean daily.)
- A phenomenon called “migration” can sometimes occurs when a rubberized magnet is left on a painted vehicle for too long. Heat and moisture can cause material from the rubberized surface to migrate onto the surface of the vehicle which is difficult to remove. This can be avoided by regularly removing and cleaning the magnet and painted surface.
- Wait at least 90 days to use a magnetic sign on newly painted vehicles: 60 days for clearcoat, two days for newly waxed surfaces.
- Never place a magnetic sign on the ground with the magnet-side down. Tiny bits of iron debris can become attached that can damage a vehicle’s finish and are hard to remove.
