RubberSteel is:

  • Magnetic Receptive — unlike magnet-to-magnet attraction, pole alignment is not a problem
  • Flexible — lays flat, wraps around curved surfaces, won’t crease
  • Easy to Use — stamp, score, drill, or punch; hand-cut with knife or scissors
  • Easy to Label (with laminates) — screenprint, pad stamp, or hand letter; write on/wipe off with dry-erase markers
  • Easy to Apply — no sharp edges; adhesive backing attaches easily to metal, wood, plastic, Formica, smooth concrete and plaster, cardboard, and more
  • Rustproof
  • Durable, long-lasting, and easy to store

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. 


As pliable and adaptable as flexible magnetic sheeting, RubberSteel magnetic receptive material is ideal for holding magnetic sheets, strips, custom profiles, or hard magnets on either flat or curved surfaces. And because it’s lightweight, RubberSteel material is perfect for school, home, or office.

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. 

RubberSteel is a heavyweight option that works well in all applications.

flexibleReceptive2Rochester Magnet also provides magnetic sheet metal discs and plates in sizes and shapes to match Neo magnets. This is often desirable as a magnetic receptor to provide the performance characteristics desired. Our relationships with local sheet metal fabrication sources enable us to produce standard and custom shapes quickly. 

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.
