What adhesive should I use on my wallpaper?
Different wallpapers require different adhesive.
Contact us or purchase the recommended adhesive as per the wallpaper manufacturer guidelines.
NOTE: Fire ratings and tests were carried out using recommended adhesive by the manufacturing company. If a fire certificate is required for your project, you will need to purchase the correct adhesive to ensure compliance.
Why do some papers say to paste the wall?
Technology in wallpaper manufacture has advanced since the original classic paper, dating back to the 1970’s or earlier. The introduction of polyester fibres in paper pulp, means non-woven wallpaper does not expand when wet and therefore does not need to soak before being installed. With this new technology of non-woven products, adhesive can only be applied directly to the wall.
However, there are some paper products still sold in the market and they will need to be applied in accordance with the directions of the manufacturer’s label. This is especially important for grass-cloth and sisal products. We always recommend installation by a professional installer, so please do not hesitate to contact us for advise and/or recommendations.
Must I use a lining paper?
This depends on your wall. If you have imperfections on your wall we recommend the use of lining paper. It is also good practise if you are new to wallpaper hanging. You must use the same adhesive for your lining paper as your wallpaper.
What does the pattern match on my wallpaper mean?
Most wallpaper is printed on rollers and therefore each wallpaper pattern has a repeat. Some common pattern repeats are:
Straight match – means that the pattern matches across the width of the wallpaper. The label of the wallpaper will tell you how often the pattern repeats.
Offset match – sometimes called a half-drop, means the match is obtained by halving the repeat. For example a label might state a 53/26.5cm offset match. This means the design repeats every 53cm and the point at which they match from left to right is every 26.5cm.
Free match – means there is no matching required. It is the easiest product to hang, as no matter how the strips of wallpaper are hung, no visible join or seams.
What is a batch number?
Wallpaper is printed in batches of rolls. It is important to have the same batch number, to ensure colours match exactly on installation.
The batch number is usually located on the wallpaper label close to the pattern number.
What is non-woven wallpaper?
Non-woven is fabric made by a process not involving weaving. It is the latest technology in wallpaper, creating easier application & removal whilst enhancing textures.
