- Product Review (submitted on 11 August 2016):
- No expert just a monkey but here’s a few tips! Never used anything like this before and was insulating 2 walls meeting at an outer right angle. Make sure the walls are sealed beforehand I used a thinned PVA solution. I had a couple of tricky sections round and behind a radiator that I couldn’t remove. I pre cut all the foam wallpaper using a blade and metal ruler and dry fitted them; marking in pencil on the wall where each edge ended. It’s better if each foam strip is cut 1 or 2mm short of the ceiling /coving and skirting so it lays completely flat. The same for if the edge is butting up to an adjoining wall. Any gaps can be filled with decorators caulk. You need way more adhesive on the wall than could ever imagine: 3-4mm thick! I was concerned that once hung that the strips would move but you can’t even slide them like normal wallpaper. If you haven’t positioned it correctly you have to peel it back and try again. The vertical wallpaper strips appear to shrink very slightly across their width. You start off with each strip butted up perfectly to the next but end up with about a 1mm gap between each strip once dry. The right angle was quite tricky as one strip has to overlap the edge of the other. As it dried the overlapping strip lifted slightly down the edge. I used long metal rulers on top of the join and secured them in place using medical micro pore tape to force the join together. Once dry they peeled off fine.
