ground preparation for gluing

The ground should be dry and flat, free from loose parts, dust, dirt, grease, wax and silicone. To achieve a maximum adhesion, non-absorbent surfaces should be cleaned with alcohol (ethanol, isopropyl alcohol). Self-adhesive (SA) sheets are suitable for both, absorbent and non-absorbent surfaces, although non-absorbent surfaces are recommended.

 

Before using MultiStyle (MS) on a porous or highly absorbent surface, e.g. brickwork, gypsum plasterboards or untreated chipboards, we recommend undercoating the ground. Alternatively you can use our SIBUKLE D22 HV dispersion adhesive as a suitable first coat. We also recommend SIBUKLE D22 HV dispersion adhesive when using non-adhesive STRUCTURE-LINE (SL) and DECO-LINE (DM) sheets on porous or highly absorbent grounds, e.g. brickwork or gypsum plasterboards and untreated chipboard.

 

In case of non-absorbent grounds surface tension should be at least 38 dyn (industrial info!). For application on convex or concave grounds all sheet edges must be fixed mechanically.

Ideal processing temperature ranges from + 10°C up to + 30°C. The design sheets should be acclimatized, i.e. they should be brought to room temperature prior to processing (avoidance of condensation on the gluing surface).

 

A temperature increase of 10°C will cause our products to expand by approx. 0.7 mm over a length of 1 meter. As a rule, expansion gap of approx. 2 – 3 mm should be kept at each sheet edge!

 

In case of high surroundings temperature or major temperature-fluctuations the expansion gap should be increased or the sheet format should be chosen smaller. Avoid blistering (air inclusions); use a medium-hard hand rubber roller with a width of approx. 170 mm.

 

Remove the backing cover step-by-step from self-adhesive design sheet (SA), do not touch gluing surface and press the sheet onto the ground as firmly as possible. The final adhesion power will be reached at room temperature after 24 hours.

processing SIBUKLE

Application: SIBUKLE D 22 HV is best suited for the gluing of SIBU products onto absorbent flat grounds like wood, plywood, chipboard, gypsum plasterboard, concrete or smooth brickwork.

 

ATTENTION: SIBUKLE D 22 HV is not suited for non-absorbent grounds such as tiles, plastics, metals, glass, etc.

 

Processing: Apply exclusively on the entire cleaned ground by means of fine spatula (spatula toothing is given for every product). At a surroundings temperature between 20°C and 35 °C the adhesive should then be left to air for 20 - 50 minutes. The higher the surroundings temperature is the shorter is the airing time. No drying time is required for SibuGlas, SoftLeather and MultiStyle Fashion products, which can be bonded in a wet adhesive bed.

 

Finger test: After application with the spatula the maximum airing time is reached as soon as the glue no longer sticks to the fingers!

 

Storage: In the original airtight containers the adhesive can be stored up to 12 months from delivery date. Store always above freezing point. Protect from frost, otherwise the glue cannot be used anymore!

 

Please study the technical table in the overview in order to see if this accessory is suitable for your product.

cutting

SIBU DECO-LINE sheets with less than 2 mm thickness can be easily cut with a wallpaper knife. Simply notch the surface and break along the edge. For all other product lines and for DECO-LINE sheets up to 3 mm thickness the cutting pressure has to be increased.

 

After cutting and breaking our self adhesive (SA) design sheets as well as 3D PUNCH-LINE designs (NA + SA) the foil on the back side has to be cut separately. Always use well sharp knives.

profile handling

The profiles must be acclimatised,which means that they have to be brought up to room temperature prior to use.


Cutting must always take place on the upper surface. The profiles must be sawn for amitred cut and precise edge angle quality.


The positioning of the profiles must be selected in such a way that the material expansion of the covered sheet can take place behind the profile nose (2-3mm).


The exact positioning of the sections on the ground is necessary, as previously glued profiles can not be stuck down again.

PVA pressing
PVA pressing

PVA pressing

Non adhesive design sheets from our DECO-LINE, LEATHER-LINE, STRUCTURE-LINE and ACRYLIC-LINE series (with a few exceptions) are compressible with commercial PVA adhesives. The ground must be absorbent (MDF, chipboard, etc.)

 

As a result of this type of processing, standard edges of plastic, aluminium or wood can be used! The PVA adhesive prevents the usual expansion of our design sheets due to the effect of increased temperature!

 

In order to be suited to PVA bonding, SIBU design sheets have to be pre-treated according to material thickness on the reverse side either by an additional production process or customer-sided grinding (using sandpaper - granulation 80).

 

PVA-PRESSING

When pressing structured design sheets (STRUCTURE-LINE, ACRYLIC LINE and LEATHER-LINE), a medium-hard sponge rubber mat with a thick- ness of approx. 5 mm should be used between the pressing sheet and the patterned side of the design sheet. This provides uniform pressure distribution and prevents undesirable crushing spots caused inadvertently by particles of dirt between the pressing sheet and the design sheet.

 

When using DECO-LINE sheets in 1 mm thickness in a press it is better to press without the sponge rubber mat. The mat could cause irregular optics in the mirror surface. If you want to have a perfect mirror result, ask us for design sheets in 2 mm thickness.

 

Should by reason of transport or stock conditions the design sheet not have a crease-free protective film, the film should be removed prior to pressing process. The pressure applied should amount to 2 kg/cm2 (0.2 N/mm2), the temperature to approx. 45°C and the pressing time to around 10 minutes. The bonding of the balancing material and the design sheet should be done in a single working process. Standard HPL sheets are suited as a balancing material. During pressing onto an untreated particle-board with a thickness of 16 mm the best results were achieved with a 1 mm polystyrene sheet for balancing.

 

Following pressing allow the sheets to cool in a stack over night (about 16 hours). Cover the stack with a 19 mm plate so that the uppermost sheet also remains flat.

DECO-LINE,STRUCTURE-LINE,ACRYLIC-LINE, PUNCH-LINE, PUNCH-LINE 3D: in case of light dirt by means of softcleaning cloth (it should be free of dust and free of dirt).

 

In case of heavy dirt by means of standard plastic or window cleaner (spray cleaners not on to the material surface, but sparingly on to the cleaning cloth).

 

Do not use abrasive cleaners, solvent cleaners or pure alcohol!

 

LEATHER-LINE: Clean leather surfaces by means of standard liquid soap and then remove the soap with a humid cloth.

Imitation fursurfaces: In case of light dirt clean LL Savanna,LLMarabu,LL Reggae ,LL Eleganza with a vacuum cleaner, in case of strong dirt clea nwith a humid cloth.

 

We recommend that printed surfaces are only cleaned with slightly soapy water. No abrasive, glass cleaning or similar agents may be used. Rinse with cleanwater.
Cleaning/care may vary in accordance with the printing colourmanufacturer.

 

POLISHINGKIT for ACRYLIC-LINE and SibuGlas surfaces. Marks from use or scratches on the acrylic surfaces can be repeatedly removed using the polishing kit.

Polishing simultaneously protects the surface. The kit contains polishing paste, a sponge and a polishing cloth.

 

SibuGlas AR+:
Warm water with washing-up liquid or oil-free benzine are suitable cleaning agents. Soiled cloths and abrasive cleaning agents are to be avoided. No razor blades, knives or scrapers should be used with SibuGlas AR+, as they can cause scratches and damage the abrasion-resistant coating. Dry rubbing is to be avoided under all circumstances.
SIBUGLAS sheets may not be cleaned with alcohol or a solvent.

transport instructions

transport instructions

In general, for the transport of SIBU products pay attention to protect them from dirt, UV radiation, moisture and mechanical damages.

 

Use stable, flat pallets with carton bedding, the pallet should be longer than the design sheets.

 

Place the uppermost design sheet on the pallet with the decor side face down. This uppermost design sheet should be protected in addition by a carton and a board (e.g., chipboard, HDF...).

 

The design sheets should be protected from shifting. • The edges and sides must be also protected (edge protection, PE foil...)

 

Avoid temperatures below – 35 °C or more than + 50 °C. • Structured sheets to be transported on pallets with the patterns running in same direction.

 

Basically, the transport of SIBU design sheets in rolled condition is possible. LL ROMBO 12, LL ROMBO 40, LL ROMBO 85, LL QUADRO as well as CR CRISTAL ROMBO 85 are excluded.

 

SIBU products must be acclimatized prior to processing; ideal processing temperature is approx. + 10 °C to + 30 °C. • Before any processing of the design sheets read the attached processing instructions which you can also find on the SIBU website!

 

SIBUKLE D 22 HV should not be long-time stored below + 5 °C and must be protected from frost during transportation.
