Paper backing your fabric adds a commercial grade strippable paper that can turn most fabrics into custom wallpaper.
PaperBac™ is our Performance Process of paper backing for fabrics. Paper backing adds a commercial grade strippable paper that turns almost any fabric into a custom wallpaper or wallcovering. Paper backing adds substance and body, as well as, a protective moisture barrier between the fabric and the wall. Paper backing protects the fabric so the installation adhesive does not into the fabric. Paper fabric backing is ideal for concealing blemishes on wall surfaces. Paper backed fabric acts as an acoustical aide by dampening sound. Paperbacked fabric also provides additional wall insulating properties to help reduce energy costs associated with heating and cooling.
