A magnetic sheet consists of strontium ferrite and flexible plastic. The backside is self-adhesive. Tips for handling self-adhesive products can be found under our respective FAQ

The flux detector
beautifully visualises the lamellar magnetisation. North and south poles alternate closely spaced. That leads to a higher adhesive force at direct contact with ferromagnetic surfaces.
The sheet is anisotropically magnetised
, which gives it a higher adhesive force then many other standard magnetic sheets. Compare the adhesive force indications before you make your decision.
The video shows how to attach a timer to the refrigerator door with a self-adhesive magnetic sheet.
The same on a photo stream. The peel-off foil is coated, so use a waterproof pen for outlining.
You can easily cut the sheet to the desired size with regular scissors or a utility knife.
Glue the cut-out sheet on the timer, press against it - done.
Now you can attach the timer to any metal surface - and quickly remove it again.
The anisotropic magnetisation
increases the sheet's adhesive force: It is so strong that you don't have to hold the timer when setting it.
The self-adhesive magnetic sheet can also be used for hanging up ferromagnetic objects, like this metal sign. Just attach a large enough piece of the sheet on the desired surface...
... and the sign stays on. The surface should not be too porous in order for the sheet to stick well.
The self-adhesive magnetic sheet is not
a suitable surface for magnets. They would demagnetise the sheet. A better surface for magnets would be our magnetic boards and strips
