HANGING INSTRUCTIONS FOR VINYL WALLCOVERING ON NON-WOVEN BACKING
1. Preparation of base
After removing the old wallpaper, the base must be clean, dry, firm, slightly absorbent and even. Any light-coloured nonwoven wallpaper also requires a uniform and light-coloured primer. If the base colour differs greatly from that of the wallcovering, it is recommended to first apply a primer in the same shade as the wallcovering.
Rub off old coats of paint, and wash down the wall using water and a degreaser. The walls must be non-alkaline, if not so, they must be cleaned and treated with a suitable fixing agent. Ensure that this agent is able to penetrate the substrate. Also treat walls that are too absorbent or powdery (including plaster walls) using a suitable fixing agent. To avoid discoloration and loss of adhesion only apply wallpaper to walls which are completely dry.
Use adhesive for non-woven wallcovering like Arte Clearpro, or Metyl Special (200 grammes in 4 litres of water) with the addition of 20% PVA adhesive.
Check the product for faults before hanging it and check the result for faults after hanging 3 strips of wallpaper. If any errors are visible, stop the work and contact the manufacturer. Only hang rolls with the same batch number next to each other. Avoid creases and handle with care at all times. Cut the strips of wallpaper to the correct length. Use a lambskin roller to evenly apply the adhesive to the wall (always apply adhesive slightly further than the width of the strip). Roll up the strip and place the top against the pasted wall. Unroll the strip downwards to the bottom of the wall. Start with the seam, then rub outwards from the seam across the width of the strip. Use a soft rubber roller to smoothen and even out the strip. Use a seam roller on the seams. Using a sharp knife and a ruler, carefully cut the surplus wallpaper from the top and bottom. Using a damp sponge, immediately remove any adhesive stains before they dry. Continue by hanging each strip in the same manner. Finish hanging a complete wall before starting the next.
Some plain coloured references must be placed by REVERSING THEIR DIRECTION (from top to bottom for the first, from bottom to top for the second and so on).
Metallic references must be installed by specialists.
Once glued and applied to the wall the thin metal layers might break when the paper is repositioned. Therefore strips must be pasted in one go and not being re-moved for repositioning.
Given the fact that certain metallic coatings are conductive, the electric current must be cut during installation!
Carefully cut the wall covering around switches and sockets to avoid any transfer of electricity.
The surface of the wall covering may in no case come into contact with a source of electricity. - Before installation, check the total surface of the wall for the possible presence of electricity leaks (also be careful with cables that are not visible).
Never attach a metal switch box, lamp, etc. directly to this wall covering, since grounding fails.
Some wall coverings with a metallic appearance have a particularly pronounced shiny appearance. Depending on the incidence of light, the end result may have nuanced reflections. This effect is characteristic for the product and cannot be accepted as a reason for complaint.
Carefully read the instructions provided for each reference.
Consult a professional in case of doubt.
