- recommended wallpaper adhesive: Perfax Roll On (powder) or Perfax Ready & Roll Non-Woven (ready-to-use)
- wallpaper adhesive roller with a stick to apply the adhesive to the wall
- Wallpaper pressure roller, or a clean soft cloth
- A clean table or a paste table (not necessarily needed) to cut the strips
Please note: do NOT use a wallpapering machine or sharp tools like a wallpaper spatula!
Our wallpaper is digitally printed on high quality non-woven wallpaper. This has a few advantages:
- it is considerably easier to attach than vinyl wallpaper
- it is considerably stronger than normal vinyl wallpaper
- it doesn’t contain environmentally and health burdening substances and is biodegradable.
- it can be removed dry later, provided that it is processed with the right adhesive.
With wall murals, the decor comprises multiple strips which are included in one roll. All strips are numbered at the upper side. These rolls have to be applied in the right order from left to right. Usually, the next strip is rotated 180 degrees. Thereby every possible difference in colour is avoided.
A roll of pattern wallpaper usually is 9 meters long (unless indicated otherwise). Depending on the height of the wall, one roll will yield an average of 3 strips. Measure the wall and add the height of the pattern (pattern repeat) to know what length to cut the strips at.
Before you start to process it, check the wall decoration for possible errors or flaws. Cut the strips and check whether they fit well. Unfortunately, we cannot take back processed rolls.
The surface must be dry, smooth, clean, and evenly absorbent. Thoroughly remove old wallpaper (wallpapering over old wallpaper definitely doesn’t give a good result!). Smooth possible raw surfaces and inaccuracies and close holes. Take into account that with decors with a light basis, colour deviations in the surface might shine trough. Therefore, for the best result it’s better to remove these first by whitening the wall evenly. Let recently plastered walls dry first, until they are evenly white and prime them with wallpaper adhesive (see adhesive package).
For the best result, use Perfax Roll-On wallpaper adhesive or Ready & Roll Non-woven. Prepare the adhesive according to the instructions on the package.
Evenly divide the adhesive on the wall by using a roller, and apply the adhesive over a width of a little more than one strip. If the wall doesn’t absorb too much, you could add the adhesive for a maximum of 3 strips at a time. After that, apply the first (dry!) strip to the glued wall. Be sure to attach it perpendicular, for example by means of a lead cord (available in wallpaper stores or DIYs). Gently press the strip with a gummi roller or a soft cloth to remove possible bubbles. Add all following strips joint to joint. Carefully cut possible leftover pieces at the bottom and/or top of the strips with a sharp utility knife.
Immediately remove possible glue spots with a wet sponge, pad them dry. Afterwards you can remove remaining glue spots with a clean, moist cloth.
Note: carefully read the instructions above before you start and use the correct wallpaper adhesive. Use of other adhesive other than specifically meant for non-woven wallpaper, or the abovementioned adhesive mixed with other types of adhesive may give unexpected results. We only offer guarantee if the instructions and adhesive advice have been followed correctly.
