Composition Cork Rolls - Installation Guidelines


Composition Cork Rolls - Installation Guidelines
Tools & Materials Needed For A Professional Installation:
(available at Home Depot, Lowe's or your local hardware store)
• Sharp Utility Knife, Carpet or Linoleum Blade
• Adhesive - recommended brand Henry - #176 or #356
• 3/16” x 5/32” V-Notched Trowel
• Hammer
• Brads/Headless Nails
Be sure wall is clean, dry and that existing surface is secure.
The cork can be trimmed with a utility knife, carpet or linoleum blade. It may require more than one pass.
We recommend linoleum paste applied with a v-notched trowel. Apply 100% adhesive coverage to the wall surface being corked.
After careful application of adhesive, lightly position the cork, and if correct press firmly in place (Rolling is recommended). Hammer brads/headless nails into all corners and areas that may not adhere.
Cork is a wood product and can be stained, painted or varnished. We suggest you test on spare piece first. For the perfect built-in bulletin board, you may tack picture frame molding around the cork.
The perfect wall:
A cork wall covering does not show scratches, dents or nail holes. Ideal pin-up area. Absorbs unwanted noises. You may use fine sandpaper to remove any unwanted marks.
