Adhesives According To Wallpaper Types

Wallpaper Types: Adhesive play a vital role in wallcovering and it’s essence is crucial to a wallpaper.

In fact, applying wallpaper to your wall without proper adhesive may cause damage to your wall in the future.

Below an overview of common adhesives used according to wallpaper types.

Standard adhesive 

This type of adhesive consists of cellulose ether and starch.

Hence, standard adhesive is the right choice for light to heavy paper-based wallpapers.

Special adhesive

Second type of adhesive is special adhesive which contains synthetic resin in order to increase the adhesive strength.

This type of adhesive is perfect for heavy wallpapers like wood-chip, vinyl, anaglypta or textured wallpapers.

Depending on the exact composition and the manufacturer, it is also suitable for textile, silk, grass or cork wallpapers.

Textile adhesive 

Contains the basic components as well as added plastic dispersion glue and other additives, all of which help to increase adhesion.

Hence, this type of adhesive can be used alone or added to other glues for textile, metal, foil and industrial wallpapers.

Adhesive for non-woven wallpapers

It is designed specifically for non-woven varieties.

So, When using non-woven types, the adhesive is applied directly to the wall (rather than the wallpaper).

This means that the glue needs to have good initial adhesion to ensure the dry strip of wallpaper sticks to the wall.

Furthermore, the consistency of the glue is almost splatter-free.

To make it easy to identify which parts of the wall glue has already been applied to, non-woven adhesive can contain so-called colour markers.

However, they are completely transparent once dried.

Machine adhesive/adhesive for wallpapering devices 

As the name indicates, this specific glue is meant for wallpapering machines.

It’s of a thin consistency and contains synthetic resins for better adhesion.

Dispersion adhesives 

Ready-to-use plastic- or synthetic resin-based glues.

In addition, their consistency and colour is distinctly different from the usual commercially available glue types.

Dispersion adhesive can be purchased in containers of various sizes.

However, it depending on the surface area it is to be applied to.

It can be added to glue in order to give it a great deal more adhesive strength, or used on its own.

This type of adhesive is suitable for heavy and water-proof wallpapers like glass-fibre, vinyl and textured wallpaper.

Which all of mention above require great adhesive strength.
