Application Instructionsrenovation-Acoustical-Shielding-Retrofit-Wall-Applications-2

  1. Simply apply premium vinyl flooring adhesive to the existing wall surface with 3/32 inch V notched trowel. Or use an aerosol spray adhesive for use with resilient vinyl flooring
  2. With scrim surface facing out, place RENOVATION Acoustical Shielding in position at top of wall.
  3. Lower sheet along wall being careful not to get adhesive on the face surface of RENOVATION Mass Loaded Vinyl.
  4. Insert staples along top edge of sheet to hold in place. 3-4 staples per sheet should be sufficient to temporarily hold sheet in place until adhesive dries.
  5. Using your hands apply light pressure to RENOVATION Acoustical Shielding sheet to ensure full contact with adhesive surface.
  6. With a sweeping motion of your hands force all trapped air from behind the sheet towards the edges.  This will ensure full contact with the wall and provide a smooth ready to paint surface.
  7. For each additional sheet of RENOVATION Acoustical Shielding to be installed repeat step one; applying adhesive using V notched trowel as you install sheet.
  8. Repeat sheet placement and installation as performed on prior sheet placing edges together to form a tight seam with no gaps.
  9. Remove excess adhesive along the seam joint to minimize surface irregularities.
  10. Apply thin line of wall spackle along the seam.
  11. Dress the seam with a damp rag or sponge to remove excess spackle. This is done with a cross seam wiping motion.
  12. Allow spackle to dry before painting.
  13. Apply paint as you would to any drywall surface, prime; drywall texture or apply wall
    paper covering.
