Wallrock R300 Liner
What is a rough wall?
Defining a rough wall (or ceiling for that matter) could take a long time. It might be a wall which has cracks, a wall which has been around for some 100 years and needs a lot of TLC, a wall which has goo-old-woodchip wallpaper and you just can’t take it anymore. Let’s look at how Wallrock R300 Liner can be of help in some of the situations.
Firstly, what is Wallrock R300 Liner? It’s made the same way as Wallrock Thermal Liner, but it’s 1 mm thick (+/- 5%) (the Thermal Liner is 3,2 mm thick). This means although it’s made using the same thermal material as its ‘bigger’ brother it won’t give you the thermal protection; however, it’s much cheaper per square metre of coverage. The thickness and soft backing makes it a perfect candidate for covering rough walls – you can go over areas that would otherwise show through a standard lining paper.
How thick is it?
Let’s compare the thickness of the Thermal Liner, Wallrock R300 and Wallrock Fibreliner. On the left, you have the Thermal Liner – it’s 3.2 mm thick and you can see clearly it’s the thickest of the three. Underneath it you have Wallrock Fibreliner – you can compare it to standard lining paper 1200 grade. On the right is Wallrock R300. The pencil should give you a better idea of the thickness.
What’s it good for?
Damaged plaster, plasterboard, wood panelling and it’s especially great when it comes to covering woodchip wallpaper. See the image below – please note it’s been zoomed in to show the ‘unpleasant’ detail. As you can see, the soft backing of R300 allows you to cover what’s bumpy and cracked underneath. I would always suggest that you get a free sample of R300 to make sure it’ll be right for the job at hand. The surface of R300 is smooth – the same as Wallrock Fibreliner – and you can paint over it or use paste-the-wall type of wallpaper to finish it.
