For the production of wallpapers with a profiled structure, plastic plastisols are applied to a carrier material (duplex paper or non-woven material) in the screen printing method. The plastisol is pressed through the open fields of a circular screen print template using a squeegee. The visual appearance is determined by the plastisol types used. These can be either white, transparent or coloured, matt or glossy, flat as well as low or highly foaming.
The foaming plastisols reacting to a special expanding agent at a temperature of 205°C produce the three-dimensional, raised structure of the wallpapers. With future redecoration work in mind, we designed the carrier materials in a highly user-friendly way. While duplex papers may rip, non-woven materials can be stripped off easily when dry.
Wallpapers with a profiled structure are highly resistant to washing and light. They are also flame-retardant in accordance with DIN 4102, B 1. The wallpapers demonstrate good water vapour permeability and are therefore also ideally suited for kitchens and bathrooms.
