Glass Textile Wallcovering is an interior wall finish system used in both commercial and residential applications for renovation and new construction projects. The combination of the glass textile textures, paint and adhesive provides a high performance, functional wall finish system that can reinforce gypsum walls or resurface problem walls.
It is a wallcovering system that combines the versatility of paint, from latex to epoxy, with the strength and benefits of woven glass textile yarns to meet the most demanding wall finish requirements. The glass textile yarns are made from all natural materials — sand, lime and clay. The yarns are woven into various textures and patterns and treated with a natural starch binder for dimensional stability during the installation process.
GTW is available in many textures of timeless designs that are designed to be finished with a paint coating or decorative finish after installation. With its inherent characteristics, glass textile wallcovering is a natural choice where durability, safety and health are a concern. It will not shrink or stretch; exceeds Class A fire ratings and toxicity requirements; is highly breathable to reduce the risk of mold and mildew; environmentally friendly; highly durable and long lasting; can be renewed/repainted on the wall many times thereby reducing landfill waste; and paintability means color and finish options are virtually unlimited.
With only minor preparation, glass textile wallcovering can be installed over a variety of surfaces such as wood paneling, block, brick, stucco, plaster, tile and dry wall. It also reinforces the substrate and protects the wall surface. It easily bridges cracks and hides roughness and minor imperfections.
Glass textile wallcoverings have been the wallcovering of choice in European countries since 1960.
