Paint glass-fiber mat or fiberglass web allows saving energy and time spent on leveling the surfaces of the ceiling and walls during regular repair. The application of glass-fiber mats is becoming increasingly important for finishing and strengthening internal surfaces and removing numerous small flaws.
Glass-fiber mat is an environmentally friendly material made from mineral glass fibers and organic resins. It is a continuous nonwoven fabric, consisting of randomly glued fibers, without a marked pattern and having a great tensile strength.
Glass tissue glue "Lux"
To choose the right adhesive for a glass-fiber mat, you need to pay attention to certain characteristics of the product before buying it:
- Despite the fact that glass-fiber mat is a light enough material, the glue for its pasting should have very strong adhesion since its function is to withstand the weight of putty and paint applied over the glass-fiber mat.
- The adhesive must be polymer-based since the starch-based adhesives cannot resist additional moisture contained in the putty over the glass-fiber mat.
- The adhesive should contain at least 15% of the main substance – polymer, which determines the strength of the joint, moisture resistance and durability of the adhesive joint.
In practice, we often encounter that the requirements for application of adhesives for glass-fiber mats cannot always be met during repair work:
- The temperature in the room is higher or lower than the recommended for gluing;
- The ready-to-use adhesive is diluted with water at builders' discretion;
- Cheap putty with a high sand content can be used for filling a glass-fiber mat, while the adhesive load is increased to two times;
- Builders save time, without waiting for complete drying of surfaces after gluing the glass-fiber mat and start puttying and painting in less than 24 hours.
Therefore, when developing the recipe for the wallpaper glue "Lux" we have laid a certain "margin of safety", and its durability has been tested by many years of experience of use and confirmed by many craftsmen-builders.
Glass tissue glue application rules
- Prepare the surfaces to be glued, having cleaned them of dirt and dust. Carry out a "start" filler of surfaces.
- Prime surfaces with glue "Lux" in the ratio: 1 part of glue and 2 parts of water.
- The special glue for glass-fiber mat should be applied directly to the wall, and not to the adhesive tape.
- Lay the linen butt-end, carefully leveling with a spatula.
- After gluing the fiberglass, the surface is again primed with the diluted glue.
- After complete drying, the surfaces are filled with the finish putty, cleaned with a wire lath and primed with the diluted glue.
- The last stage is painting walls or other decoration of surfaces.
