Before applying the coating, check the condition of the wall. It must be clean and dry, without any irregularities. Fill in the holes and apply a wallpaper undercoat if necessary.
Determine the starting point, starting with the second strip, from an angle. To do this, calculate the width of the wallpaper strip less than 3cm, or 57cm.
Draw a line all the way up using a spirit or laser level, it will be our starting point.
Measure the height of the wall and cut the lengths, leaving between 3 and 5cm at each end.
Transfer the special non-woven wallpaper glue to your tray and apply the glue with a brush, starting at the top and bottom of the wall. Continue to apply the glue with the roller to the rest of the wall, projecting slightly on each side.
Apply the coating leaving a piece protruding at the top and bottom while pressing the edge of the wallpaper on the drawn line. Press gently with the smoothing brush from the center outwards to remove any bubbles.
Press well in the high and low angles of the wall with the spatula, then cut the excess with a box cutter.
Place the second strip against the first, always leaving a surplus at the top and bottom.
After cutting off the excess and gluing, crush the joint using the roller provided for this purpose.
Clean off any traces of glue with a sponge and clean water. Continue installing the wallpaper in the direction of the opposite corner, following the same process.
Green Blade® and the environment Fibandco takes great pride in offering sustainable, high-performance products. All Green Blade® products use our plant based veneer from recycled banana plant trunks. Fibandco recycle the trunk (or stem) of the plant once the fruit has been harvested. After bearing fruit, the banana plant naturally dies, for a new plant to grow from the bulb. Hence Fibandco give a second life to a by-product of banana farming. No water is used in the manufacturing of Green Blade®, and the Fibandco factory produces the energy it uses thorough solar photovoltaic panels.
|All panels used to make Green Blade® products are FSC certified. The Forest Stewardship Council is an international not for-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.|
