We are now offering Golden Harvest TEKNAbond adhesive! This multipurpose adhesive is perfect for installing wallpaper and murals. Following the paste to water ratio below, slowly stir the dry mix into cold water. Continue stirring for 30 seconds, then let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir thoroughly before use.
For each full package of TEKNAbond dry mix, use the following amount of water:
•For prepasted wallpapers, use 16 pints (32 cups/7.6 liters) of water. Yields enough paste for 14-16 rolls.
•For lightweight wallpapers, such as unpasted non wovens or lightweight vinyls, use 16 pints (32 cups/7.6 liters) of water. Yields enough paste for 12-14 rolls.
•For medium weight vinyls, use 12 pints (24 cups/5.7 liters) of water. Yields enough paste for 10-12 rolls.
•For grasscloth, silk, and other natural or delicate wallpapers, use 10 pints (20 cups/4.7 liters) of water. Yields enough paste for 8-10 rolls.
