superflex 2-in-1 / 3-in-1 wallpaper and magnetic wallpaper

In this section, you will find frequently asked questions and answers for the superflex magnetic wallpaper, superflex 2-in-1 wallpaper and superflex 3-in-1 wallpaper.

On what types of surfaces can superflex wallpapers be installed?

Superflex wallpapers adhere to any smooth surface. Before wallpapering, remove any loose paint or old wallpaper and fill holes and cracks in the wall. Smooth out any bumps with sandpaper. Absorbent surfaces should be treated with superflex primer before wallpapering.

Can I apply the wallpaper myself?

Since one roll of wallpaper weighs 15 kg, two people should install it together.

Is it easy to cut the wallpaper to size?

Yes, it can be easily cut to the desired size using a box cutter.

Do I have to wear protective clothing to install the wallpaper?

We recommend you wear gloves during the installation. The edges of the magnetic wallpaper are sharp and could lead to cuts.

Is the wallpaper self-adhesive?

No, you need a strong wallpaper paste such as superflex vinyl wallpaper paste for the installation.

What should I do if bubbles form under the wallpaper?

Try to push the bubbles out with a wallpaper spatula while the wallpaper paste is still wet. If this no longer works, you can proceed as follows:
  • Pierce the bubble with a sharp knife or pointy needle. The puncture hole should be as small as possible.
  • Press down on the bubble to get the air out.
  • Use a glue applicator or syringe to squirt adhesive into the opening.
  • Smooth out the bubble.
  • Wipe off any excess adhesive with a damp sponge.

How can I avoid unsightly joints when wallpapering?

Overlap the edges slightly, then use a box cutter to make a double cut through both layers of wallpaper. If you don’t want to use the double cut method, make sure that you cut the wallpaper very straight before wallpapering. This will allow you to simply push the wallpaper strips together.

Can I paint over the superflex wallpaper or apply another wallpaper over it?

We recommend you do not paint over the 2-in-1 / 3-in-1 wallpaper, because it will lose its functionality as a whiteboard / projection surface. The superflex magnetic wallpaper, on the other hand, can be painted with any paint or papered over with a lightweight wallpaper.

Which magnets can I use on the wallpaper??

Use only neodymium magnets. You will find a selection of suitable magnets below:

How do I clean the 2-in-1 / 3-in-1 wallpaper?

Always use a microfibre cloth to clean the whiteboard surface.

How can I remove the superflex wallpaper?

It can be removed like any standard wallpaper. Please note that the superflex vinyl wallpaper paste is a very strong adhesive.
