Read and follow all manufacturer instruction for the chosen adhesive.
Apply adhesive using a 1/2” spaced, 1/8” V-notched trowel. Apply the adhesive to the wall area only, do not apply to the backing of the sheet.
Once the adhesive has cured select the first piece of sheet to be installed, place it along the plumb line for a vertical installation or along the level line for a horizontal (wainscot) installation.
Once the sheet is properly aligned lightly rub over the surface of the sheet so that the entire sheet is making contact with the adhesive. Do not press firmly to the wall at this point, check to make sure that the sheet is still properly aligned, the sheet can be re-positioned if necessary to assure proper alignment.
Once the first sheet is applied to the wall select any required trim pieces. Using a sharp utility knife cut the trim pieces to the proper size. When using an edge trim across the top of a horizontal (wainscot) run, notch the back of the edge trim at the intersection location with any vertical (joint) trim. Install trim by sliding it behind the sheet.
Do not install the trim tight against the edge of the sheet, allow some space (1/16” minimum) for expansion of the sheet. Starting at the center of the sheet, use a roller to apply pressure to the entire sheet, work your way from the center to the edges. This will make the entire surface of the sheet bond to the wall and will allow you to work out and air bubbles. Use the roller to roll the trim once the sheet has been properly rolled and is free of any air bubbles.
