Opti-Rite® MSA Dry Erase Wallpaper Competitor Comparison

Here is a comparative analysis of Opti-Rite® MSA Dry Erase Wallpaper and its competitor. This list of features is a thorough compilation of topics our customers are most frequently inquiring about. It ranges from Eco-Friendliness to Durability and everything in the middle. 

Eco-friendliness 

Opti-Rite® MSA is manufactured with 32.4% recycled plastic. Other dry erase products are made with melamine which is a by-product of the coal industry. During its production, several toxic chemicals are released into the atmosphere. 

 

Ghosting and Staining

 

We guarantee Opti-Rite® MSA is free of staining and ghosting when properly erased with a clean, dry and soft eraser such as a cloth or whiteboard eraser. After long-term use, there may be a need to remove any oils or hand prints with isopropyl alcohol to ensure the Opti-Rite® is ghost and stain free.

 

Erase-ability

Our research confirms that Opti-Rite® MSA will maintain pristine writability and erase-ability up to 20,000 uses. A whiteboard writing testing machine and average temperature and humidity conditions were used in the test. Shown above is a test using the same ink and the same soft cloth eraser. We found that our surface required half the amount of wipes. 

Scratch Test

The surface of Opti-Rite® is a simple combination of strong plastics engineered to endure sharp objects. In the scratch test above the surface of Opti-Rite® MSA and a competitor were scratched heavily with steel wool. Our surface was able to withstand the scratches, maintain a glossy surface and keep it’s erase-ability at a high level of ease.  

Alcohol Removal 

Normal dry erase markers can be erased easily within one month. If the ink is left on for longer to the point where the ink is stuck on the surface, whiteboard cleaner or isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth can be used to wash the ink off. 

We used a sharpie to test it’s ease of removal with alcohol from our product compared to a competitor. As shown, the permanent ink is wiped completely clean with no ghosting or staining.

Cut-ability

 With a selection ranging in thickness, all Opti-Rite®  material is meant to be cut easily with scissors, an X-Acto knife or a utility blade. 

 

Installation

Opti-Rite® Magnetic Self-Adhesive Dry Erase Wallpaper is made for easy installation by the end user. For small 2’x3’ cuts, all you need is a level and a pencil. For bigger cuts, you’ll just need to add some painters tape. Installation instructions can be found here. 

 

Whether your project is commercial or a DIY, we have exactly what you need for a clean dry erase wallpaper installation. Check out our shop to take a look at our high quality options.
