What surfaces can ReMARKable™ be applied to?
With ReMARKable™, one simple step turns drywall, plaster, metal, tile, or any smooth paintable interior surface into a dry-erase surface. We do not recommend using ReMARKable™ on plastics. Remember, since ReMARKable™ is a coating, the finished surface will only be as smooth as it was before applying ReMARKable™.
How do I prepare my surface before applying ReMARKable™?
For surface prep, repair any divots, scratches or bumps on the wall so the surface will be as smooth as possible. If you have applied a fresh coat of paint prior to applying ReMARKable™, make sure to let the paint dry a minimum of 24 hours before appling ReMARKable™. White ReMARKable must be applied over true white paint. The best type of paint to use is ReMARKable™ Tintable Base Paint. Some other satin or eggshell water based enamel paints will also work. Do not apply ReMARKable™ directly over primer alone. Do not apply Remarkable™ over paints that have additives, i.e. antimicrobials, wetting & dispersing agents, Defoamers or rheology modifiers. Always test adhesion of basecoat prior to Remarkable™ application. If you have any questions, call our support center prior to application. Watch our instructional videos here.
Do I need a primer?
For best results, use ReMARKable™ over a solid, painted wall. ReMARKable™ Tintable Base Paint is a primer/paint in one.
What color is ReMARKable™ when it dries?
ReMARKable™ comes in both clear and white. For a traditional white board effect use the ReMARKable™ white over a previously painted white substrate. If you want to introduce any other color. first paint your desired color on that area, then apply ReMARKable™ clear, and now you will have a beautiful dry erase surface. ReMARKable™ white or clear works best when applied over latex paint in a satin or semi-gloss sheen.
Can ReMARKable™ be sprayed?
For best results, use a 1/4″ mooth nap, micro fiber, roller.
Does ReMARKable™ have an odor?
ReMARKable™ is virtually odorless.
