Question:

I picked up your name from Products Finishing magazine. I hope you may be able to help. I am looking for a product that I can apply to a nonferrous material that will allow a magnet to stick to it. This part will be used in an environment where the temperature is in the 300F range, subjected to dirt and oil, and will be repeatedly stretched a small amount. Do you know of a coating that suits this bill? T. O.

Answer:

My experience is in organic and inorganic powder coatings. So I can only answer your question based upon my experience. I do not know of any powder coating that will provide a surface for magnets to be attracted to. Since most metallic powder coatings use mica and aluminum pigments, they will not work either. Sorry but I can’t help you.
