1. Wallpapering tips for blown vinyl and vinyl wallpapers backed with paper and embossed wallpapers
For optimum results, please consider the following points before starting work:
Check the product and production codes as well as pattern information. Please keep the control sheet and paper samples.
Surface preparation: Surface preparation can be extremely time consuming, especially in old buildings. Nevertheless, it is worth taking every trouble at this stage in order to achieve the best results. The following points should be observed:
- Old wallpaper and soluble paints should be completely removed.
- Old emulsion paints should be tested for stability and removed if necessary.
- Cracks and holes should be filled with putty or polyester filler, and particularly absorbent surfaces should be pre-coated with wallpaper paste.
- Prime old, sandy plaster, ideally using a water-based primer (see photo).
For wallpapers with extremely smooth surfaces, it is often advisable to use a lining paper. As a general rule, the surface must be dry, stable, evenly absorbent, clean, plain and smooth.
Cutting wallpaper strips
Cutting strips of wallpaper: The room height plus an extra 5 to 10 cm for trimming should give the correct strip length for papers with seamless patterns; in this case, lengths can be cut consecutively, independent of the pattern.
Pattern repeats: Lengths are identical for wallpapers with straight pattern repeats. Simply lay the wallpaper lengths on top of one another, making sure the pattern is in the same place for each, and cut to the required length.For wallpapers with an offset pattern, every second length will be displaced by the offset stated on the insert.
Pasting wallpaper strips
Paste: Use a branded product (wallpaper adhesive) and follow the instructions specified. Mix the paste according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
For heavy vinyl wallpapers, 20% dispersion adhesive should be added to increase adhesive strength.
Folding and rolling, ensuring adequate soaking time
After cutting, the strips are pasted evenly, folded and rolled.
A consistent soaking time must be ensured at this stage. Soaking time is dependent on room temperature and wallpaper type (around 8-12 minutes).
Only paste a small number of strips at one time, and hang them in the order they were pasted. The strips can also be pasted with a papering / pasting machine.
Hanging wallpaper strips
Wallpaper hanging: Wallpaper is always hung “with the light.” In other words, work should be started at the window.
Ensure that the first length is vertically plumb so that subsequent lengths are also hung straight. Place the length on the wall, allowing an overhang at the ceiling to be able to compensate for any height differences.
Hang the subsequent strips, ensuring a good butt joint, and smooth into position working from the centre to the edges to remove air bubbles.
A sponge roller, paperhanging brush or cloth can be used for blown vinyl and vinyl wallpapers.
Use a paperhanging brush or cloth for embossed papers.
A seam roller may be used to work joint areas in blown vinyl and vinyl wallpapers. Do not use a seam roller on embossed wallpapers.
Trimming the overhang
The length can now be trimmed at the top and bottom.
- Ensure that excessive heat and draughts are avoided when hanging and drying wallpaper.
- The ideal working temperature is between 18°C and 25°C.
- Remove spots of paste immediately by dabbing them with a clean cloth
Please always follow the instructions specified on the back of the label for your new wallpaper. Check the goods before starting work and only use wallpaper rolls with the same production code.
