Instructions for Proper Maintenance and Installation:
(Print this for your records.)
Preparing Magnetic-Receptive Surfaces
Before affixing magnetic sign 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 air dry.
*(Approximate curing times: paint - 90 days; clear coat - 60 days; wax - 2 days.)
Applying Flexible Magnet
If possible, affix to smooth, flat or gently curved metallic surfaces.
Make sure the entire magnet is flat against the metal surface (i.e., no air pockets).
If you place the magnet in the wrong position, completely remove the magnet from the surface and reaffix. Do not pull the magnet across the surface, or it may stretch due to the resistance caused by the high magnetic strength.
Avoid use on horizontal metal surfaces exposed to direct sunlight (such as automobile hoods) or temperatures exceeding 150 F (66 C).
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.
Avoid use on non-metallic body fillers, simulated wood grain siding and repainted surfaces.
Cleaning Flexible Magnet
To guard against 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 or allow to air-dry. (For vehicle-mounted signs, remove and clean WEEKLY.)
To protect fresh clear coat, base coat and/or vinyl surfaces on new cars and trucks, remove magnetic signs DAILY.
