HP PVC-free wallpaper on pressed wood

#1 njcatto 3 years ago

Hi all,

I hope someone can assist...has anyone had any experience of applying HP PVC-free wallpaper to a pressed wood surface? And would a layer or two of primer improve the overall adhesion process and prevent potential water damage to the wood?

We haven't tried this before. In our technical team´s opinion it should probably work. It is important cleaning & using maybe 1 or 2 coats of non-solvent primer to prep the surface. It might work because…

  • Like a gypsum board wall, the wood is porous (similar morphology)
  • If the board is pressed and SMOOTH, this will have higher chance of success (but PVC-free WP can be installed on light textured walls too)
  • We have installed samples over non-porous surfaces as well, like metal, with good results

For full proof results, we will better to ask the you to run a small test if possible.

Thanks for the response. The client ended up coating it with a layer of primer and that seems to be more than adequate for adhesion.
