When exploring options for magnetic material, the words "magnetic receptive" almost always enter the conversation. Regarding magnetism, the term "receptive" indicates to what degree the substrate is likely or willing to interact with a magnetic field. The more a material is receptive to magnetism, the more magnetically receptive it is.

Magnetic receptive material can be used in various ways, especially for commercial applications. Magnets can accomplish both aesthetic and technical functionalities, such as displays or packaging. Below are the common magnetic receptive materials in use today:

Rubber steel magnetic receptive sheeting is a type of magnetic receptive material that comes as a sheet. You can attach it to different surfaces. Magnetic receptive sheeting with adhesive backing works well for displays, signs, and more. If your business or organization is beginning to use magnets, RubberSteel is a user-friendly option that can tackle a range of applications. 

Some of the benefits of RubberSteel include:

  • Strong attraction: Pole alignment is not an issue with RubberSteel, unlike regular magnets.
  • Flexibility: RubberSteel can lay flat or wrap around almost any surface without creasing.
  • Ease of use: The material cuts easily with scissors or a knife, and it works well with punches, drills and scoring tools.
  • Labeling properties: RubberSteel is perfect for use with dry-erase markers and ideal for screen printing processes.
  • Durability and resistance to rust: The material is not susceptible to corrosion or rust.

In sheet form, RubberSteel is highly adaptable and pliable. It's ideal for holding hard magnets, custom profiles, strips and other magnetic sheets on almost any surface. RubberSteel material is perfect for home projects and school or office use because it's so lightweight and versatile.

Stock sheet sizes are available up to 24.375 inches wide in plain material or single or double laminate. Rolls are available in similar widths and come in lengths ranging from 10 feet to 100 feet.

If you want an economic solution for multiple applications, consider a versatile magnet. RubberSteel is a great option if you're looking for magnets that can work in multiple locations and accomplish many uses. Magnets easily attach to metal surfaces. Plus, when you want to change them or move their locations, they leave behind no residue.

Sometimes used as an alternative to RubberSteel, Paper Steel is a magnetic receptive material with lighter and thinner properties. Paper Steel products are perfect for use in a printer to produce high-quality magnetic photographs. This material has a white glossy surface that is stronger than many other magnetic papers.

Sheets are 37 inches wide with a thickness of 0.010 inches. One side is a fully printable laminate, while the other is an adhesive or plain paper.

Paper Steel is ideal for creating:

  • Signs.
  • Point-of-purchase displays.
  • Whiteboards.
  • Trade show displays and project exhibits.
  • Menu boards.

Paper Steel is easy to die-cut to create hundreds of different shapes and designs. It's also perfect for projects that require a layout with rounded corners or edges.

Metal Discs/Plates

Rochester Magnet supplies magnetic metal discs and plates in many different shapes and sizes to match our line of Neodymium magnets. NEO magnets are among the most powerful magnets on the market.

NEO magnets are ideal for use in many different industries like marketing, manufacturing and packaging. Our wide variety of Neodymium provides superior strength in small shapes and sizes, making them ideal when limited to smaller size constraints.

When you consider magnetic receptive paper or vinyl, metal discs and plates work well in most applications. External magnets can hold non-magnetic signs and sheets to the magnetic material and give you a wider range of usability.
