Wallpaper Installation and Specifications
WALLPAPER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
Installation Guidelines: It is best to contact a professional paper hanger to perform proper installation for easy up and easy down wall covering or mural. A qualified installer can be found here: http://www.ngpp.org/find_paperhanger.php
Environment: Room temperature should be above 65° F (18°C) for 48 hours prior to install. Wallpaper should be acclimated to the same temperature as installation point for 48 hours prior to install. Walls should not contain in excess of 5% residual moisture.
Surface Preparation: Hanging surface must be smooth, undamaged, and free of dirt and moisture. Use a white wall covering primer to conceal joints. Roman: PRO-977 ULTRA-PRIME® Premium Pigmented Primer or similar is recommended. Thoroughly clean surface of all dirt, grease, and anything that might adversely affect proper installation.
New Construction: Properly prime surface with suitable product. For painted drywall, Roman: PRO-909 VINYL PREP® Clear Wallpaper Primer or similar is recommended. When hanging on other surfaces use proper primer for the surface to be applied.
Existing Construction: For new construction drywall and existing drywall installations use Strippable Wall Covering Adhesive or similar.
Process: Apply paste to wall with roller. For best results use a soft bristle brush working from the center of the panel out and smooth product on the wall. Use plastic strip or tape at seam to allow double cutting for a butt to butt installation. Clean any paste from Wallpaper surface with soft damp sponge. Apply paste for next panel. Line up panels at eye level and smooth from center out. Using proper primer and ample paste will allow wallpaper to slide into alignment with previous panel. When wallpaper or any wall covering is to be hung in a high traffic area it is recommended to finish either pre- hanging or post-hanging with a clear coating. When finishing post-hanging Inx Digital ClearFlexTM ME can be applied with a paint roller following the manufacturer’s directions. This will ensure long life and greatly improve harm from abrasion.
