Digital Wallcollection

November 2009 Substrate
> The substrate must be level, fixed, permanently dry, grease and dust free and,
depending on the material to be hung, uniform in colour.
> Remove and/or isolate ballpoint, oil, pen and pastel crayon marks, etc.
> Remove old paper. Do not use lining paper.
> Prime normally absorbing substrates including plastered/rendered walls using
Vescom primer/sealer in the ratio of 1 to 3 of primer and water, respectively. Have
this dry for ± 5 hours under favourable conditions.
> Prime strongly absorbing substrates such as concrete, gas concrete, plasterboard
and plastered walls using undiluted Vescom primer/sealer. Have this dry for ± 5
hours under favourable conditions.
> Wash painted walls with a solution of water and an environmentally-friendly
degreaser. Next, rub it down (= make it porous).
> Fixate sandy, powdery and non-fixed substrates.
> Impregnate thin layers of plasterwork.
> Isolate and fill, if required, screw and nail heads using a filler that adheres
appropriately and does now powder.
> Use Vescom adhesive 3000 with non-breathing (permanently sealed) substrates
such as pre-treated or galvanised metal, plastic and painted surfaces. Untreated
metal must be pre-treated in advance.
> The substrate’s temperature must be at least 10°C. The construction moisture level of
the substrate may not be more than 6%.

General
> We recommend applying the Vescom primer/sealer using a square brush.
> The wallcovering will be easier to remove after a length of time by using an
undiluted Vescom primer/sealer.

Vescom adhesive
Only use Vescom adhesive to obtain the best results.
We recommend using Vescom 2000 adhesive for the Digital Wallcollection.

Stir the Vescom adhesives appropriately before use. Vescom 2000 adhesive may be
diluted by at most 6% depending on the conditions such as, for example, the
temperature and/or the state of the substrate and the wallcovering type. Always seal
the adhesive packaging correctly. Shelf life: 9 months.

Tools
Use a square brush in corners, the ceiling and the skirting and use a short-pile synthetic
sheepskin roller for wall surfaces. Clean tools using water.

Adhesive application
Vinyl qualities with a non-woven rug: 5-6 m2/kg.

Cut the allowance at the ceiling and skirting using a smoother and Stanley knife after having hung 3 or 4 drops. release the first drop ± 10 cm at the seam and apply adhesive extra thinly. Make a vertical cut of ± 4 cm at the ceiling through both overlapping strips using a Stanley knife. www. Later claims cannot be accepted.

Surplus adhesive residue must be immediately removed using clean water and dried. Should you find defects.
