FAQ Interior Films
Compared to other renovation methods, an adhesive coating is easier and faster to apply. It is also more durable and enables you to renovate your furniture rather than throw it away.
A self-adhesive film is a vinyl covering that can be applied to walls, furniture or doors. It is the ideal solution for any interior decoration or renovation and perfectly recreates the materials (wood, marble, textile, metallic, glitter, leather, natural stone, solid color) since most of these adhesive vinyls have a structure.
It is a non-invasive solution that does not generate dust or odor. It’s faster, easier to maintain and has better resistance. With an adhesive film, the result is more structured and very realistic visually and to the touch. Also, you will not have to close your establishment during the renovation and, of course, with paint, a fresh coat would be necessary after a while; with our films, its appearance does not change.
Yes, and we also have the IMO certification for the application of our films in maritime environments.
Calendared PVC may show a small amount of shrinkage over the years (2 to 3 mm), this is why it is recommended to leave an overlap between the strips.
No, the adhesive vinyl applied inside environments will not lose its color because it is UV treated.
Just use a cloth and water to clean an adhesive vinyl. We offer a set of products specific for the after care of PVC vinyl.
Certainly, you can easily apply an film on top of another. It is of course not recommended to do this for films that are too structured like leather, glitter, etc.
It is recommended not to apply more than 3 coatings on top of each other.
Yes, but we recommend that you take part in our training or contact a professional for optimal results. However, if you want to apply our films by yourself, you can find installation tutorial videos on our YouTube channel.
It is possible to print on our Cover Styl’ with a UV printer.
Yes, the majority of our adhesive vinyls are moisture resistant, but depending on the application you may need silicone for the edges. Of course, we do not recommend ranges such as leather, glitter, etc.
Applying our films on tiling is entirely possible, you then decide whether you want to mark the joint or work the joint beforehand in order to have a flat surface.
Most of the references are not intended only for application on a flat surface, they can stretch up to 15% in order to adapt to many surfaces.
Yes, the adhesive coatings are moisture resistant. You can apply them on shower, bathtub or bathroom furniture as long as the surface is clean before applying the vinyl. However, we advise you to apply silicone to edges in contact with water. Certain ranges are of course not recommended such as glitter, leather, etc.
It depends on the surface. They can be repositioned if the surface is smooth/laminated. However, the more you reposition the vinyl, the less effective the glue will be. Finally, on some surfaces (e.g. paint), repositioning the film will damage the surface and the film will no longer be able to be bonded. So be careful and use the services of a professional if necessary.
The ideal application temperature for adhesive coatings is between 15 and 25 °C, so you can easily apply it in a house, hotel or office. Therefore, for example, avoid placing a very hot object such as a pan directly on the coating.
It depends on the coating. In fact, structured adhesive vinyls like the Wood range have few problems with scratches, unlike “smooth” vinyls like the Solid Color range, for example. Our “Soft Touch” series is treated with a silicone that makes it even more robust with regard to scratches.
It is entirely possible to remove our films without risk if it is applied to a laminated surface. However, if it is applied to wallpaper or paint for example, your original surface will be damaged.
You can install an adhesive covering outdoors or on the floor but we do not recommend it. Furthermore addition, the warranty does not apply if an adhesive film is applied on the floor or outdoors.
The standard Primer is a water-based bonding liquid for porous surfaces that absorb and the Solvent Primer is solvent-based for laminated and hard (non-absorbent) surfaces. The application of the water-based primer is done on the entire surface while the solvent primer is applied only at the edges, corners and all critical points.
