A ferrous sheet (also called a flexible iron sheet) is made of iron/steel powder compounded with plastics or rubbers (NBB or CPE). The ferrous sheet is not a magnet itself but used to form a magnetic receptive face, it can be treated as a metal base to receive magnetic sheets or other magnets.
The ferrous sheet has similar characteristics to magnetic sheet, it is flexible and can be self adhesive, easily cut to any shape, bent, twisted, coiled, with no loss of magnetic properties.
Types of Ferrous Sheet
PVC laminated rolls
Self-adhesive laminated rolls
Dry erase finish laminated rolls
Manufacturing method of Ferrous Sheet
The production ways of the ferrous sheet are the same as flexible magnets, firstly the materials are calendered in wide format rolls, the standard sizes are thickness(0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.75mm, 1mm, 1.5mm), width(620mm, 1000mm, 1200mm, 1370mm) and length(10m, 15m, 20m, 30m). Special roll sizes can be custom made, also can be cut into small sheet-like A3 and A4 sizes.
The front surface of the ferrous sheet can be plain or laminated with PVC, self-adhesive, dry-wipe PET, PP for different usage, the back surface is generally with UV coating, but both 2 sides of the same roll can be laminated together if required.
Applications of Ferrous Sheet
The ferrous sheet is generally used as a base for magnetic sheets or other magnets, they work together and are widely used for various magnetic advertising and technical applications, mainly for Commercial Signage, Large Format Graphics, Office Presentations, Paint Masking Applications, POP & Tradeshow Displays, Promotional Giveaways, Wallcoverings.
