INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING INTERLINING WALLPAPER
Checking the wallpaper
The strips come with a 1 cm excess on each side. The excess is used to overlap the adjacent edges of the wallpaper, so
that they create a uniform graphic.
Check the wallpaper carefully by spreading it on a flat surface to ensure that the strips match each other in terms of color
*If the pattern does not match, fi le a complaint before applying the wallpaper!
The wall should be smooth, degreased, free of dirt, paint or old wallpaper residues and should be primed. The wallpaper will not adhere to any porous surface (e.g. structural plaster).
• Fresh wall – covered with gypsum, plasterboard or other absorbent fi nish materials must be primed (two layers of
deep penetrating primer or diluted wallpaper adhesive) at least 24 hours before application. It must be ensured that the primer absorbs into the substrate and does not leave a layer on the surface that may weaken the adhesive.
• Painted wall – it should be washed with painting soap or, if the layer of paint is thick (e.g. silicone, washable), it should
be wiped with sandpaper (to increase adhesion of the adhesive to the substrate) and degreased.
• Wallpapered wall – remove all layers of old wallpaper. If after removing the wallpaper there are any visible damages to the wall, it should be repaired and then the whole wall primed.
For applying interlining wallpaper, we recommend Metylan Direct adhesive. The adhesive
should be used according to the manufacturer’s instructions on the package.
Start wallpapering by arranging the position of wallpaper blocks on the wall (we recommend
wallpapering in the direction from window to door). You can measure and draw vertical lines
on the wall to apply wallpaper evenly. Apply the glue on the wall only, in steps, at a width
slightly larger than the applied block. Glue the edges thoroughly, otherwise the wallpaper may
go off the edges. This is not due to a material defect but to an application error.
Lay the wallpaper strips from the top of the wall, so that one of the parts that are still folded
falls down freely. Then, match the pattern very precisely to the previously glued block.
If you see that the sheet does not stick evenly, you can correct its position. Smooth the
wallpaper from the middle to the edges to bring out the air bubbles. Any glue that comes out
on the wallpaper should be removed gently, continuously, with a damp sponge or cloth. Excess
wallpaper on the upper and lower edge of the glued blocks should be cut with a sharp knife.
The blocks have a 1 cm overlap; you can cut them on the wall when fi nished. With a
sharp wallpaper knife, cut the resulting overlap through both layers (with one cut) and remove
any cuttings, both from the top and bottom. After pressing the joint again, both parts of the
wallpaper will fi t together perfectly, despite having been cut “more or less”.
During wallpapering and until the wallpaper is dry (24h), it is absolutely necessary to avoid
airing and intensive ventilation of the room. Do not use any additional devices (heating,
ventilation, etc.) to accelerate the drying of the wallpaper. They cause (as well as too low
air humidity) too fast drying of wallpaper on the wall and, as a result, the formation of gaps
between the strips.
