How To Hang Wallpaper
Jupiter 10 uses a fine-grade special paper which only requires you to paste the wall and hang the paper. This type of paper is an ideal option if you want to decorate quickly and easily and cut out the time consuming processes that regular wallpapering requires. No pasting table is required and you don’t need to wait for paste to soak into the paper before it is hung.
Please read these instructions carefully before hanging your wallpaper.
1. Inspect Each Roll
Before cutting and hanging the wallcovering, ensure that all wallpaper rolls have the same batch reference, are in good condition, with no variation in shade, and that no other faults are present. Please ensure that there are enough rolls to complete the job.
Examination before hanging is the buyer’s responsibility. No claim can be accepted after wallcoverings have been cut and hung, for defects which are apparent at the time of hanging. In the event of any complaint, please quote the reference and batch number on the label.
Walls should be clean, dry and even. Remove any old wallcovering and loose paint and scrape off powdery, flaky surfaces. Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper. Absorbent surfaces should be prepared with a primer ensuring it dries completely before continuing. New plaster should be allowed to dry out completely. For best results we recommend walls are cross lined using good quality lining paper. Lining should be allowed to dry completely before hanging the wallcovering.
3. Pasting and Hanging
This is a ‘paste the wall' product. The paste should be applied to the wall, not the back of the wallcovering.
A premium quality tub adhesive, or an equivalent good quality pH neutral, solvent-free, fungicide protected, light grade adhesive should be used. We recommend UHU, Solvite or similar brands. Do not use self-mix adhesives or heavy duty pastes.
Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang 1 length at a time, to an area slightly wider than the width of the roll.
Butt joins and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
Avoid squeezing paste out of joins and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged off whilst moist, using a clean, damp sponge.
Trim top and bottom with a sharp knife or scissors. Ensure the wallcovering is firmly adhered. After hanging 2 or 3 lengths, inspect the result to ensure that no shading or other faults are present.
