Different Types of Opti-Rite® Resurfacing

Peel and Stick:

Some of the Opti-Rite® materials are designed with a peel and stick self-adhesive backing. The self-adhesive backing allows for quick projects and quick, straightforward processes. The self-adhesive materials lend themselves to resurfacing projects. You can use them on walls, old whiteboards, chalkboards, or any smooth surface.

Adhesive Required:

While there are peel and stick options, some projects require an adhesive for application. The application-required adhesive resurfacing options are great for larger wall applications and are best installed by a professional.

Magnetic Receptive:

Magnetic receptive materials work exactly as they sound. Your favorite resurfacing options with magnetic receptive backing allow for the use of your favorite magnets and magnetic accessories.

Matte or Low Gloss Material:

A low gloss material that is dry-erase can be used for projection simultaneously. Matte Opti-Rite material prevents glare and creates a blank canvas for overhead projection.
