How to work with cork wallpaper
The attractiveness of cork wallpapers is that their production is carried out without the use of adhesives. For their production, cork oak bark is used, from which crumbs are obtained. The crumb is pressed and thus a thin layer is obtained. Cork chips, when exposed to high temperatures, release resinous substances. These substances, having cooled down, glue the crumb particles. Such wallpapers that do not have a base are rare. In the repair of electricians, an asbestos cord is necessarily used, it is inexpensive.
More common is a type of cork wallpaper with a paper base. They are obtained by gluing cork veneer onto paper. The veneer can have either the natural cork color or be dyed.
In terms of cost, such wallpapers are relatively affordable. It all depends on the manufacturer, of course. However, due to the high consumer quality, such a cost is fully justified.
Cork wallpapers are heavy wallpapers, therefore, work with them is carried out according to the same principle as with heavy wallpapers. However, there are some nuances. It is contraindicated to bend such wallpaper for a break, as a noticeable crack will appear. When gluing the corners, do not allow the wallpaper to be pressed into the corner.
