It offers a 4.3 mil thick White Opaque colored film coated with a premium dry erase surface and a High- tack acrylic pressure sensitive grooved adhesive for dry installs.  Can be repositioned during installation but not after it sets up.

This film is recommended for application to interior wall surfaces. This film has a premium quality dry erase surface and is perfect for decorative or architectural applications where a dry erase surface is desirable.

Order only what you need!  Our Magnetic Whiteboard Dry Erase Film comes in 47″ wide rolls ordered in 1′ increments (minimum order 4′ long roll).    

NOTE: For best performance – Immediately after install, thoroughly clean the dry erase surface with a glass cleaner and soft microfiber cloth.  A semi-gloss painted surface provides best adhesion. Flat paint or textured finish can be problematic along with any anti-graffiti coatings.

APPLICATION ENVIORNMENT – Product is intended for interior use only.

APPLICATION SURFACE – Flat, smooth painted (non-vinyl) wallboards.
Please note: A semi-gloss painted surface provides best adhesion. Flat paint or textured finish can be problematic along with any anti-graffiti coatings.

WALL INSPECTION AND REPAIR – This information is intended as guidance only. We recommend that all surfaces be tested for compatibility and removability. Factors such as the smoothness and cleanliness of the surface, as well as print, process, installation method, and size of the decal may impact the adhesion and success of the application.

  •  This product is designed to adhere to clean, smooth painted wallboards.
  •  Bubbles, cracks, or any other imperfections must be repaired before application. If repair requires the use of spackle, it should be primed over and painted, and allowed to cure.
  •  If the wall is freshly painted, please refer to the paint manufacturer’s statement regarding dry time.
  •  If the wall surface needs cleaning only, clean with soapy water and isopropyl alcohol and dry with a lint-free towel.
  •  Apply a small swatch of the film to the prepared wall surface in an inconspicuous area and allow the swatch to dwell for 72 hours. Slowly remove the film at a 45 –90 degree angle and inspect for possible damage to the wall. If any paint is removed, re-inspect the wall surface for cure of the paint to the wallboard.


Please note: the below information provides basic information on installation. Professional installers can be hired to ensure proper application of finished graphics. Contact the Professional Decal Application Association for information on member installers and services by visiting

  • Use of premask is not recommended.
  • Film should be removed from its packaging, allowed to lay flat and acclimate to the room environment prior to installation.
  • The minimum temperature is 50F (10C) with 50% relative humidity.
  • Avoid applying to an area directly near a heater or source of condensation.
  • Make sure your film is centered properly.
  • Dry application. No wetting agent is recommended for application to wallboard or other wall coverings. Condensation left behind the film will cause the film to lift.
  • Bend back approximately two inches of the release liner from the top portion of the film
  • Be careful not to stretch the film, as films have memory and when stretched, will ultimately relax, causing lifting and failure.
  • Using a felt-tipped squeegee, lightly squeegee the center top of the exposed adhesive area of the film, working the middle section of the film first. Use firm, even strokes as you work your way from the center to either side. Continue to slowly remove the paper liner, while squeegeeing horizontally with overlapping strokes, working from top to bottom and from center to sides. Be sure to squeegee the entire film surface to ensure adequatem adhesion.
  • Overlapping seams, if necessary, are recommended for full wall installation.


  • Environmental conditions such as heat, humidity, condensation, air conditioning, exposure to chemicals and abrasion etc. can impact the installation, application life, and removability of the Film.
  • Carefully pick at the top portion of the film getting the fingernail under the adhesive –working your fingers under the adhesive, use a 45-90 degree angle and carefully, steadily, slowly remove the graphic from the top working your way down to the bottom.
  • If original liner has been saved, you can reapply the film to the liner.
  • To save the film and reuse it, please make sure hands are washed removing dirt and oils from fingers/hands. If dirt /oils are on the hand, it can contaminate the adhesive.
  • To save and re-use the Film at a later date, refer to the storage stability guidelines and wind the film out but do not wind into a tight coil.
  • If consumer pulls too fast upon removal, they may cause the film to rip.

  • Avoid scratching or denting the surface during installation as this may affect writing performance.
  • Before setting the adhesive to the application surface: – Ensure proper alignment by using a guideline. Allow additional material for trimming as necessary. – Ensure that the entire surface of the film is flat against the application surface and the ends of the film do not sag.
  • Stretching or attempting to reposition the Product during application may deform, buckle, or ripple the Product.
  • Wrinkles created during application cannot be removed with heat due to polyester construction.
  • Seams tend to accumulate ink from the markers. Make seams as tight as possible. Removing the Product Removing the Product too quickly can result in excessive adhesive left on the application surface. If necessary, heat a small section of the Product with a heat gun to soften the adhesive, peel back slowly, then heat and remove the next section. NOTE: Removal from application surfaces other than painted metal panels may result in damage to the application surface. Using the Product as Whiteboard
  • Most standard dry erase markers are suitable.
  • Erase writing as soon as possible using a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth and SimGlas cleaner. Expo Cleaner can also be used. NOTE: DO NOT use whiteboard cleaning wipes or any other cleaning wipes. Rigid, flat erasers are not recommended.
  • To prevent ink debris from sticking to the Product (i.e. ghosting), use a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth with water or a whiteboard cleaning spray as needed to pick up the ink debris. Wash or replace cleaning clothes often.
  • NEVER use permanent markers or felt pens. Only use select dry erase markers for writing on the Product.
  • If a non-specified marker is accidentally used, write over the non-specified mark with a dry erase marker, then wipe it off immediately using the maintenance method below.
  • NOTE: Upon initial use, the dry erase marker ink may not adhere well to the Product surface. Writing with a dry erase marker and erasing several times will “break-in” the surface.


Q: Is the magnetic firm reusable. Can it be pulled from the wall without hurting the drywall? Does the film come in white.
A: This film is white in color. It is repositionable during install, but sets up after that. More than likely it will bring some primer/paint with it when removed down the road. There are many things that can affect how well it does or doesn’t stick to the wall though, so every install will not be the same.
Q: I’d like to use this over the mirrored closet doors in my home office; If/when I remove the film someday, will the mirrors be scuffed or altered in any way?
A: This particular film is used as a dry apply for walls, but would work fine on the mirrors. It will not damage the surface when it’s time to remove it. We also offer a wet install version for glass.
Q: Can I use the dry erase magnetic film on my (non-magnetic) stainless steel refrigerator doors?
A: Sure, this would work fine to be used in that manner.
Q: Can I cut this to fit around a light switch?
A: Yes, this film can be carefully cut using a utility knife to fit around the switch.
Q: This Magnetic Dry Erase White ESX-2096-47 is significantly thicker than most films. What different directions, if any, need to be looked at when applying to glass? Sample says “for Walls”, website says all surfaces; Is it good for glass?
A: It is designed for walls, but we have tested it here and if you install it either dry or with just water, it should work well on glass. If you use too much soap, it will not stay flat as the film is so heavy. Also remember, it has an unattractive back to it, so you may want to install some colored vinyl or frost on the other side!
