Like traditional wallpaper, vinyl wall coverings come in a wide variety of colors and finishes to dress up basic wall surfaces. Unlike standard wallpaper, these wall coverings are made from thin vinyl woven wires adhered to a fabric backing layer for added strength and durability. This product can be installed using many of the same tools and techniques required for standard wallpaper.

Prepare Wall Surface

Strip existing wall coverings before installing new ones.

Sand glossy paint using 80-grit sandpaper for maximum adhesion. Flat paint does not need to be sanded.

Fill holes or blemishes in the existing wall using drywall joint compound applied with a putty knife. Wait for the compound to dry, then sand the wall smooth using a 220-grit sandpaper.

Wipe the wall with a tack cloth to remove any sanding dust before proceeding to installation.

Every wall is different in case of different site conditions and wall conditions, please contact company representative to avoid errors.

Install Woven Vinyl Wallcoverings

Coat the wall with an acrylic or latex wall covering primer. Apply the primer using a paint brush or roller. Wait for the primer to dry completely.

Apply vinyl wall covering adhesive (Bartoline – Heavy Duty) to the back of a sheet of vinyl wall covering using a wallpaper brush or short-napped roller. Press the paper against the wall and use a utility knife to cut it as needed along the bottom edge to fit the wall. In case of design and pattern follow company instructions.

Brush the Wovin wall covering with a wallpaper brush, starting in the middle and working out toward the edges to eliminate air pockets.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 to cover the entire wall or room. Roll seams with a seam roller for secure adhesion and to eliminate air bubbles.

Wipe excess adhesive from the surface of the paper as you work, using a sponge or rag.

Recommended adhesive is BARTOLINE Heavy duty.
