Paste is an adhesive that is usually made of either starch or organic cellulose ethers. In most cases, methylcellulose is the main component of such adhesives. Up to 20 percent of these adhesives consist of renewable raw materials and up to 98 percent consist of water. This percentage can vary from product to product – with a greater or smaller percentage of renewable raw materials or water. Past is a type of cold glue and is therefore easy to handle.
The application of paste now becomes easier for users. Now, you have the possibility of acquiring colored glue. This is a big help because it becomes easy to check whether the whole wall has been glued. But don’t worry. The color will disappear over time by contact with air.
Since there are many types of wallpaper in the world, there is no single type of glue that works for everything. Individual wallpaper glues have their own properties. The glue recommended for the wallpaper in question is indicated on the so-called information note or information booklet from the respective manufacturer of each product. Most glue comes in pulverized form and differs for normal and special use:
Normal glue (The different wallpapers require different strengths of glue. Normal glue is easily soluble in cold water and is made of renewable raw materials. Additional additives can speed up the paste preparation stage.)
Special glue (This kind of glue is suitable for thicker wallpaper such as vinyl or woodchip wallpaper. This special glue gets its strength from resins or plasticizers.)
Non-woven wallpaper glue (the non-woven wallpaper glue has to have an extraordinary consistency. This type of glue doesn't splatter and can be applied quickly and easily directly onto the wall.)
Glue for wallpapering machines / equipment (This is a truly great help. Here, non-woven wallpaper is prevented from sticking together quite easily.)
Glues are completely harmless for your health as they are non-toxic. To facilitate processing of these glues, resins or other substances have been added to them. This way, wallpaper glue can be made harder and more long-lasting.
