Tightly bonded foam support fabric

This type of coating is composed of a fabric, natural or synthetic, laminated on a layer of foam. The glue film provides additional protection. The preparation of the supports is very small, but it is necessary to be sure of their tightness. The slightest crack is a passage for dust, which ends up blackening the fabric.

Necessary material

  • Stool
  • Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Spatula
  • Flat brush
  • Neoprene glue

Steps

  1. Laying the fabric
  2. Smoothing and finishing

Laying the fabric

1. The stretched bonded fabric is sold in a large width (2.60 m), which makes it possible to line a single piece. Practice a first cut, depending on the height of the room. If the walls are not bordered by plinths, plan a few more centimeters for the levelings. Use a retractable blade cutter.

2. The fabric is simply glued on the periphery, at the top and bottom of the walls, on the sides and in the corners. Any media can be pasted. If it is wallpaper or paint, make sure it can support the weight of the coating without tearing. Roll the roll against the wall; start gluing from the top, using neoprene glue. Apply it with a brush at the top of the wall, on a strip of 5 cm, and unroll the fabric. Stick in successive lengths of 1.50 m.

3. Bring the liner to the corner of the wall. Paste a band into the re-entrant angle on the first wall; engage the fabric with a spatula. It is rarely necessary to make a cut in the corner. If the wall is not vertical, cut the fabric and resume laying on the next wall. Never flip the two sides of an angle at once.

Smoothing and finishing

4. Cutting around doors and windows should be done before gluing the fabric to the bottom of the wall. Cut carefully, keeping a sufficient margin of safety. Glue around the opening and apply the fabric with a spatula.

5. Stick the fabric to the bottom of the wall, along the plinth. Use the spatula and tension the coating, ensuring that the fabric fibers are horizontal. The setting time of the glue is about four minutes. Do not rub too much length so that you can exert pressure during setting time.

6. Make the levelings along the plinth with the cutter. To remove the cut strip, hold the coating with the spatula to prevent tearing.
