Application Instructions

S/Ceiling Fireproof Cloth:
Clean off any existing wall or ceiling paper.
Scrape off any loose paint. If gloss paint rub down with glass paper and coat with Product 93 ES/Stabond.
Distemper – ensure that all distemper is removed from the ceiling and that distemper is not under existing coatings.
Ensure the cleaned off ceiling is sealed with product 93 ES/Stabond to ensure the adhesive does not dry out due to the ceiling absorbing moisture.
Cut the Envirograf® S/Ceiling Intumescent Cloth to length.
Applying Envirograf® S/Ceiling Intumescent Cloth to ceilings is a two person job; one applying the adhesive with a comb float whilst the other is applying the S/Ceiling.
Apply a coat of CA/N adhesive to the ceiling using a serrated edge application (As used when wall tiling).
To press S/Ceiling onto the ceiling (white side affixed to ceiling) it is best to use a wide flat clean scraper & roll with a paper type roller.
CA/N adhesive approximate coverage 3m² per litre.
If the ceiling were clean, two people could apply approximately 20 meters of S/Ceiling in 90-120 minutes.
Emulsion or other paints can be applied after 2-3 hours, giving the adhesive time to dry before coating.
NOTE – The white side of the cloth is affixed to the adhesive. The speckled side down for decorating. If it is necessary to overlap the joints by approximately 15-20mm using a straight edge if the edges are frayed, if not just butt together and cut through the cloth taking off material and lightly roller the edges with a wallpaper roller.

FR Wallpaper paste:
