Installation and removal of HP PVC-free Wall Paper is a snap. The wall paper is pre-pasted, so installers simply activate the glue with water, apply the paper to a clean wall, smooth out air bubbles with a sponge and let dry. There is no need to handle separate glues or adhesives, and no glue waste upon removal. Removal is as easy as dampening the paper with a sponge and stripping from the wall. Clean removal is covered by an HP warranty.
The HP PVC-free Wall Paper solution reaches its full potential when used with HP Latex Ink Technology, producing odor-free prints that are ideal for home, office, medical and restaurant decoration. HP PVC-free Wall Paper printed with water-based HP Latex Inks meets GREENGUARD criteria for low emitting products and is tested to the GREENGUARD standards offering a clear
advantage over prints produced with solvent inks. The easy installation and removal provided by HP PVC-free Wall Paper also provides an ideal solution for retail environments where wall graphics may be updated for new promotions or seasonal changes.
