Similarly, it is asked, do magnets stick to white boards?
A magnetic whiteboard has the white surface deposited on top of a thin layer of steel sheet-metal, instead of particle board or MDF. Since it has steel behind the thin plastic, magnets stick quite well to it.
Also Know, what is difference between magnetic and non magnetic white board? The difference between the magnetic and the non-magnetic range of whiteboards is precisely that the non-magnetic boards function only as write and wipe whiteboards, whereas the magnetic boards are also receptive to magnets.
Similarly, you may ask, what makes a whiteboard magnetic?
Most traditional magnetic whiteboards are backed with a steel sheet to provide even magnetism across the surface of the whiteboard. Additionally, porcelain and painted-steel whiteboards have the added benefit of being fired directly onto a steel surface, making the surface itself both magnetic and erasable.
How do you magnetize a non magnetic whiteboard?
Hold a piece of steel (nail) pointing north and hit it repeatedly with a hammer. It will develop a weak magnetization as the magnetic domains within the steel are jostled by the hammer hits and then re-align along the Hold the non-magnetic board aligned along the earths magnetic field lines.
