Enough when finishing walls wall-paper of hot stamping has become widespread. This elite finishing material is usually produced on qualitative flizelinovy basis with vinyl surface. Distinguish several options of such wall-paper. Each look has the advantages, shortcomings and methods of application.
Production technique of wall-paper of hot stamping
It is possible to receive original impressive surface with use of vinyl. This material is previously warmed then roll, passing between special rollers. After such stamping the surface of cloth receives original relief.
Heat treatment of wall-paper gives the chance to receive the beautiful drawing doing surface of frothed. At the same time the finished product becomes safe in terms of ecology: heating of material allows to remove from it harmful chemicals and to neutralize formaldehyde resins.
Distinguish four types of wall-paper of hot stamping differing in basis type. In all options the surface layer of cloths consists of vinyl in which composition include the additives improving performance data of product. The cost of wall-paper and their durability directly depend on quality of the main covering. Use of hot stamping allows to produce the cloths having various density of external layer.
Option No. 1. Duplex (heavy vinyl)
Wall-paper of this group differs in the excellent durability and reliability. Original and very expressive relief is inherent in them. Fastening of wall-paper to wall does not demand preliminary thorough training of surface. By the form duplex reminds impressive three-dimensional embroidery or the reaped skin. Is ideal for those cases when it is necessary to cover surface defects of walls.
Option No. 2. Silk-screen printing
Rather light finishing material. Its feature is the brilliant drawing most of which favourably looks at strong and bright lighting. Such wall-paper on the reflecting ability and modulations inherent to them can be compared to silk. However it is possible to apply this material only on very plain surfaces as the thin structure of cloths after gluing gives roughnesses and other possible defects of wall.
Option No. 3. Compact vinyl
The qualitative invoice of this wall-paper is reached at the expense of the considerable thickness of cloths. Wall-paper of this type in various color and thematic schemes is issued. Imitation of fabric, stone, wood and even brick is possible. Very favourably on surface of wall-paper the imitation of soft and large hand dabs looks.
Option No. 4. Wall-paper with chemical stamping
At production of wall-paper of this group apply inhibition (chemical stamping). The technology of their production is based on processing of the certain sites of material covered with polyvinylchloride by special reagents (inhibitors). These substances actively suppress vinyl foaming.
Very often this material is used for finishing of the rooms having public value. When finishing premises it is recommended to glue wall-paper with chemical stamping in the hall, kitchen or in corridor. This wall-paper differs in the increased resistance to wear. They are almost irresponsive to high humidity.
Advantages and shortcomings of wall-paper of hot stamping
Wall-paper executed with use of technology of hot stamping differs in interesting structure and environmental friendliness. They are universal and can be used with success practically in any interior. It is necessary to refer to advantages of these finishing materials also their excellent warm and sound-proof qualities, resistance to ultraviolet. This type of wall-paper can quite serve within 6-12 years. In need of cloth it is possible to use under painting.
The best results when using wall-paper of hot stamping are achieved when pasting walls to rooms with low ceilings. Mounting at high ceilings can be accompanied by difficulties as wall-paper of this type differs in the solid weight of cloths.
Sometimes can be difficult qualitatively to paste such wall-paper end-to-end. The surface of expensive and elite cloths cannot resist to claws of pets. If wall-paper with flizelinovy basis is chosen, it will not turn out to call finishing of rooms of the big area budgetary in any way, this wall-paper differs in rather high cost. And cloths on cheaper paper basis are whimsical and quite capable to razmoknut in the course of gluing.
Wall-paper of hot stamping on flizelinovy basis
Working properties of the dense wall-paper made by method of hot stamping in many respects are defined by their basis. It can be paper or interlining.
Interlining is safe, does not contain harmful inclusions. Wall-paper on its basis can be used in rooms where the children and people having allergy live. The Flizelinovy basis allows surface "to breathe". This wall-paper freely passes air and protects walls from emergence of fungus and mold. The special composition of material excludes deformation of cloths throughout very long time. The drawing on wall-paper of this look is resistant to burning out, the saturation of paints in process of wear of wall-paper almost does not change.
Wall-paper of hot stamping on flizelinovy basis is more expensive than paper. For the purpose of economy it is recommended to apply in rooms of the big area cloths with the small drawing. Otherwise the consumption of finishing material at selection of elements of images will increase.
Wall-paper of hot stamping on paper basis
The paper basis with stamping on many positions loses in wall-paper to interlining. The main advantage of such finishing – low cost. The exception makes heavy vinyl wall coverings (duplex). They are distinguished by camouflage effect and resistance to influence of UV-radiation.
Shortcomings of paper basis: such wall-paper cannot be washed and used in the conditions of the increased humidity, otherwise on them the fungus can quite appear. Over time on cloths the deleted pollution can be formed hardly. It is rather difficult to fix wall-paper with vinyl on paper basis: it is necessary to apply glue structure both on cloth, and on wall surface. Such wall-paper usually is issued in narrow rolls therefore when pasting walls many seams are formed. On life cycle wall-paper on paper basis considerably concedes to cloths of hot stamping on the basis of interlining. However on exterior it is very difficult to distinguish wall-paper on the basis of paper from more expensive flizelinovy cloths to the nonspecialist.
