    Joins on lining paper over thermal lining

    Painters & Decorators

    Hi, I’m confused because when I hang lining paper I can achieve a good finish, I very rarely see any joint and I can’t figure out why if I hang lining paper on graphite thermal wall lining which has a kind of paper on it, I have joint problems! When I paper over it I seal the paper on wall lining, then hang lining paper and it looks the same as it would on just plaster. It’s when I emulsion that I can’t understand because it shows every joint not as a gap but it’s as if the paint builds up on joints. I was thinking paint may be lifting joins but then none appear lifted when looking closely.

    Also, why would they lift if stuck with the same ready-mixed adhesive used for plastered walls and recommended for the thermal lining? Like I say there is no appearance of joint not stuck, just looks like a build-up of paint on the joint?

    "Hi Pete, I’ve had similar problems when hanging different types of paper, sometimes it can be that the paper has stretched when lining the paper together or sometimes it could do with shrinking. Sometimes pre-pasting the wall helps. Also, in regards to using ready-made wallpaper paste, if I was you I would always make my own, hope this may help. Regards A&S Maintenance team."

    "It could be that it's getting wet as it will want to shrink as your papering over the paper and then painting over that wallpaper if you get what I mean"

    "To help the seams stick you can use a primer, this will help reduce seams from lifting/splitting."

    "First. Sand all the walls where you want to apply paper and then add the adhesive and apply the paper.

    "If you are planning to hang lining paper or wallpaper on top of a thermal liner I strongly recommend that you use a non woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner. Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints"
