What is a “Type II” wallcovering?

Type II wallcoverings are compliant with a durability standard for commercial wallcoverings.
Criteria include scrubbability, stain resistance,flame spread, colorfastness, abrasion resistance,and more. Testing is conducted according to the Type II ASTM F793 standard and test procedures.
The American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) established the standard with input from the Wallcovering Association. Type II is often a requirement when specifying wallcoverings.

HP wallpaper 1Installation and application of custom printed wallpaper

Make sure the wall is cleaned, prepped, and primed before attempting to install pasted wallcovering.
Optimum installation conditions are between 65 and 75° F (18 to 24° C) and 40-60% RH. For higher temperatures and relative humidities, allow more time for primer and paste coats to dry.
Lay out the area to be covered as appropriate for the image or wallcovering to be hung. Double check the pattern, color, and sequence numbering of panels to ensure it is correct.
Apply an even coat of adhesive to the backing of the wallcovering using a brush, roller, or pasting machine. Paste-the-wall is not a recommended application. When pasting several strips in advance, booking is recommended to ensure proper wetting of the backing. Fold each end
toward the middle, pasted sides together, aligning the edges carefully to prevent the paste on the edges from drying out.
Book the strips for a minimum of 5-10 minutes.
Do not crease the wallcovering, and avoid stacking multiple booked strips as the added weight could cause creasing.
Install wallcovering using a plastic wallcovering smoother, working out air pockets or bubbles.
Stop the installation if there is a question of panel colour matching.
Remove excess paste immediately with clean water and a soft cellulose sponge. Use the soft side of the sponge if there is an abrasive side. It will be difficult to remove paste after it starts to dry.
If following an overlapping method, use a minimum of 1 inch but preferably 2 inches.
After the adhesive has begun to set (approximately 20-30 minutes), roll the seams lightly with a seam roller as necessary. Avoid excessive pressure when rolling the seams to avoid squeezing out paste. Keep in mind that although the paste will seem fully dried after approximately 24-48
hours, it may take 1-2 weeks for it to finally settle.
