Score wallpaper with the Paper Tiger® Triple Head in a circular motion using light pressure.

2. Vinyl Laminates

Where the wallcovering is paper-backed vinyl, strip the vinyl layer by catching a corner and pulling down. Score the backing paper with the Paper Tiger® Triple Head in a circular motion using light pressure.

3. Preparing the DIF Solution

Add 650ml of Zinsser DIF® Concentrate to 8 litres of warm water. The unique enzyme is activated by the warm water and the solution is ready to use.

4. Application

Apply the DIF® solution to the scored wallpaper in accordance with the manufacture’s instructions. Allow to soak in for 15 minutes, re-wet if necessary then remove the wallpaper with the Wallpaper Scraper. Wash down the wall with DIF® to remove excessive wallpaper adhesive.

5. Priming

Prime the areas to be decorated with one full coat of Gardz® Sealer. Gardz® is designed to lock in any wallpaper adhesive residue and give a perfect base for further decoration.
