People also ask, why are whiteboards magnetic?
The reason why some materials, like a steel whiteboard, allow magnets to "stick" to them relates to their electrons. The atoms of these materials feature less pairs of electrons and more spare electrons than other materials.
Additionally, 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.
In this regard, are most whiteboards magnetic?
Whiteboards are manufactured with a variety of materials used for the dry erase surface. The resulting products are melamine, porcelain, glass, or a proprietary surface such as the EVERWhite surface. Not all can be magnetic. Boards with a melamine, or painted surface are only available non-magnetic.
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.
