Wallpapers and wallpaper paste go hand in hand. But some special wallpaper materials require specific glues or pastes. The surface, too, plays a significant role, especially as wallpaper isn’t always necessarily applied to walls. The DIY movement is on the up and up and knows no creative limitations, and wallpapers can be used to beautify doors, glass, furniture surfaces, stairs, and much more, in an arty and individual manner.
One of the most reliable and long-known adhesives for wallpaper glue is prepared on the basis of Methyl cellulose, briefly called CMC . Do not Methyl cellulose coagulation temperature , that is, by dissolving it in hot water does not form lumps and precipitation. Hence , in preparing the adhesive , based on it , the water temperature is not critical .
CMC glue range is constantly changing and updated , so to make the right choice , it is recommended to follow a few rules. First, we must remember that CMC glue – a white powder. Yellow powder is a clear indication that the products of poor quality. This is very dangerous for paper wallpaper because the glue can seep through the material and yellowness spoil their appearance. Furthermore, such a powder and poorly soluble in water for a long time . It is not recommended for imported wallpaper, since the result may be unpredictable . They can change the color. Mistakes in choosing can be avoided if preference is well known brands use glue or the same brand as wallpaper .
Clay made on the basis of Methyl cellulose, differs in purpose adhesive for light , medium and heavy wallpaper. It depends on the concentration of Methyl cellulose cellulose – than it is higher, the greater the viscosity of the adhesive . It is important for heavy wallpaper. Adhesive having weak viscosity is not necessary to keep the power wallpaper and may peel off . It is important to remember , the thicker the chosen wallpaper , the thicker is the glue . For areas other than high humidity , it is recommended to use the CMC – adhesive with the addition of antiseptic substance that prevents the rotting process .
For bonding foam , fabric , vinyl or embossed wallpaper adhesive vinyl ideal . Since it is convenient to work as wallpaper slide on the surface and can easily dock and align. If the glue does not dry whole meal cloth if necessary detach and stick again without adding glue. For all upholstery dry adhesives technology dissolution same. In plastic or enamel bucket filled with water having a temperature of twenty-five degrees , after which the vessel is arranged swirl , where, with constant stirring , poured a dry mixture . The adhesive until ready infused from three minutes to several hours, which is indicated on the packaging.
Methods for applying glue
Glue is applied to the surface in two ways – or upon the web surface. The first method is mainly used when working with light paper wallpaper . The second option involves gluing surface twice. After soaking in the first base layer , the surface is smeared with another layer . After that adheres whole meal canvas. Usually , the procedure works with the wallpaper indicated in the enclosed instructions or on the packaging .
To work with velor , textile , vinyl . It is characterized by high strength – wallpapers that are pasted on it is impossible to separate from the wall. Another advantage of the dispersion adhesive – moisture resistance and ability to withstand high humidity . But it is not recommended to use the bathroom . Dispersion adhesive is available ready to use . He applied to the surface and not on the wallpaper . The adhesive dries approximately twelve hours.
Adhesive that is based on an aqueous dispersion of acrylic copolymers , was called liquid nails . It is specially designed for easy and fast installation without the use of nails . It can be used for bonding decorative materials of wood, plaster, chipboard, hardboard , cork, cardboard , drywall , metal and ceramics . It is a versatile adhesive that allows finishing materials to glue together and stick them to various surfaces . Glue is applied to degreased, dry and clean surface for easy material points rather than a continuous layer , and under the heavy stuff – snake . Drying time is from twelve to twenty-four hours , depending on temperature, air humidity and thickness.
Clay created a latex-based , universal. It is used for almost all types of work indoors. It is used for bonding parquet , linoleum , ceramic tile and many other materials. Before applying the surface is cleaned of dirt, dust and degreased . Setting time – from an hour to an hour.
Adhesive for ceramic tiles
Ceramic tiles can be adhered to the surface using an ordinary mortar , special mastic or adhesive based on cement . Often used in the cement-based adhesive , as it is much cheaper mastic . It is used for fixing ceramic , glazed tiles , slabs of artificial or natural stone, with a strong relief on the back of the tiles and large sizes. Initially, the prepared surface of the adhesive is applied and leveled , and then another layer is applied to it and already laid tiles. This maximizes the surface adhesive behavior . After the glue dries night , and after two – gains strength . Mastic is prepared on the basis of sodium silicate is applied onto the surface of a thin layer. It hardens within three hours, and after drying for five days .
When construction works sometimes you need to glue wood, which uses a glue prepared based on an aqueous dispersion of PVA – polyvinyl acetate . He glues almost any tree and can withstand burst pressure up to one hundred kilograms per square centimeter. PVA glues are several types . Namely
PVA -P – a universal glue. It is used for bonding the veneer , plywood, chipboard, hardboard and wood pieces
PVA -M is mainly used for wood, veneer and particle board
PVA -T is used to add to cement slurries , as it provides a good grasp on the surface. It dries quickly – in a couple of hours . He also adheres tree.
Of course, in the building and other varieties used adhesive , which depends on many factors. Full details can learn from experts who are in a good construction company .
