Vinyl wallpaper has a lot of advantages overpaper. They last longer, do not fade and do not fray as fast as paper. At the same time withstand the water, cleaning detergents, and have a high ornamental potential - because vinyl can be very different in texture, color, pattern.
Vinyl on paper is cheaper but its mechanical strength is lower. When wet, such as glueing, under the influence of the glue they can be melted and broken.
Vinyl non-woven based has a much greater mechanical strength, but also the value it above.
Vinyl wallpaper made up of two superimposed onother layers: the actual base and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) film. The bottom layer, or the base may be made of paper or nonwoven. The upper layer of PVC, protects against water bottom, UV, mechanical damage. It is patterned or relief, depending on the type of wallpaper. Additionally, the impregnation may be carried out antibacterial and anti-fungal compositions.
Vinyl is applied to the paper base specialdevices, resembling in principle to the printer. They create a picture. Its several superimposed layers, which provides additional strength. Color and pattern vinyl wallpaper varies in a wide range in their manufacture can be used gilding and silvering. Above the picture on vinyl lacquer is applied, fixing it and giving the water-repellent properties. One of the main advantages of vinyl on paper - low cost.
Vinyl on non-woven basis is usually called"CD vinyl". Properties nonwoven and paper are very similar. The difference - in the mechanical strength. It is due to the fact that the nonwoven is higher than that of paper, vinyl on non-woven basis is less deformed, is considerably longer, can be stretched without tearing, it can be used in new buildings, even shrinkable. The main disadvantage - the higher price compared to the vinyl on a paper basis.
