Product name: ARSTYL® WALL PANELS
Constituent material: High-density, yellow, rigid polyurethane foam.
Density: ±300 kg/m3
Factory finish: Matt white acrylic primer to be painted.
Visible surfaces: The manufacturing technique guarantees a hard and smooth surface and the exact reproduction of the motif.
Areas of application: Decorative wall panels for interior use.
Fitting and storage conditions: ARSTYL® WALL PANELS must be stored flat in a dry place. The recommended temperature is +15 °C to +25°C with a relative humidity of 45% to 65%. To achieve optimum results, the products should be fitted under similar moisture and temperature conditions as present after the installation (indoor environment). Fitting on a wet backing surface (fresh plaster) and in forced drying conditions (heat gun, dehumidifier, exceptionally high temperature) are to be ruled out.
The following backing surfaces are suitable: indoor plastered or papered surfaces, coated plaster. Surfaces must be clean, dry, free from dust, degreased and flat; rough down if necessary. If the product is to be applied to particular backing surfaces, please consult our technical department.
Where ARSTYL® WALL PANELS are being used on uninsulated outside walls, the dew point may shift, and an expert moisture protection assessment may be necessary.
SURFACE WORK (PAINTING)
The factory-primed ARSTYL® WALL PANELS must be coated with a finishing paint. Water-based emulsion paints, acrylic or PU-based emulsion paints and alkyd resin paints are suitable. It is always recommended to perform a test coat. Lime paints, silicate paints, silicone resin colours and mixed products must not be used.
ARSTYL® WALL PANELS are not designed to withstand loads. With polyurethane materials there may be a slight dimensional change at increased temperature and humidity. A joint up to 2 mm can arise due to these material-specific properties at the panel joint area. This is not a reason for complaint.
