Application Instructions

Surface PreparationSurface must be free from grease and other residues, dry, smooth and structurally sound. Check surfaces for paint bonding, loose wallcoverings, damaged wall-board or plaster. Repair all unsound surfaces. Priming of bare drywall is not required with fabric-backed wallcoverings. Before proceeding with any unusual conditions, consult your adhesive or wallcovering supplier. 

Application Method: Use only when the room temperature is above 60°F. Apply an even coat of adhesive with a paint roller, brush, or pasting machine. Follow the wallpaper manufacturer’s instructions to paste the paper or paste the wallBook wallpaper according to the instructions. 

Avoid contact with the surface of embossed, textured or delicate wallcoverings.

Clean-Up: Before the adhesive dries, remove any excess with clean water. Additional effort may be required if the adhesive is allowed to contact the surface of embossed or textured vinyls.
