What is Wallrock Premium?
Wallrock Premium is a ‘smooth looking’ brother of Wallrock Fibreliner. The technology of making it is exactly the same as in the case of Wallrock Fibreliner (read more about it in this article), but the main difference is that it gives you a plaster-like finish. Yes, it’s much smoother than Wallrock Fibreliner or traditional lining paper. If in doubt, get a free sample of Wallrock Premium here.
The way they get it looking much smoother is they pack 25% more of wood pulp (paper) into the liner and use some large and heavy rollers to get the extra smooth finish. It’s not hard to guess that with 25% more ‘stuff’ Wallrock Premium is stronger, too.
How smooth is it?
I have taken some shots of Wallrock Premium and Wallrock Fibreliner hoping to demonstrate the difference between the two texture wise that is. Depending on your screen resolution you might not be to see the detail clearly. I’m hoping you’ll be able to see that Wallrock Fibreliner is showing some surface texture and Wallrock Premium isn’t even when magnified. Again, best to get some samples first and decide on those bases.
Plastering vs Wallrock Premium
We get asked often whether Wallrock Premium is better than plastering. There’s no straight answer. Wallrock Premium isn’t the same as plastering and vice verse. If you’ve ever had any plastering done at home you’ll know how messy it gets and how long it takes. Sure, results are great too. With the Premium, you’ll finish an average room in a few hours and most likely you’ll be able to do it yourself. All depends on what you are after.
Paste the wall or the liner?
As with all Wallrock products, you just paste the wall with adhesive and apply the wallcovering to it. If you’ve ever used lining paper or traditional wallpaper, you’ll know that you are saving huge amount of time and hassle by this. Because of how it’s made, the Premium (and all Wallrock products) are dimensionally stable (a fancy phrase meaning they don’t expand when wet or shrink when drying up), which means you have no gaps to fill.
