Installation of putty and mesh tape before pasting wallpaper (cloth)│AGLUCA, an apparel sewing factory in Yamanashi

We will introduce the process to be performed ``before'' pasting wallpaper (cloth) over plasterboard and plywood for cloth base.

◼︎Prerequisite information

・Purchased a used cast concrete (RC) property in Shiotsu, Uenohara City, Yamanashi Prefecture.

・The first floor, which was originally a warehouse and parking lot, will be renovated to create an apparel sewing factory.

・Since there is no insulation or secrecy, and the performance of the original windows and sashes is low, we aim to make the building highly airtight and highly insulated through renovations to create a comfortable working environment.

・Request to a local construction company in Uenohara City

Apply mesh tape (fiber tape) to the joints between plaster boats and plywood.

Fill the gaps between the boards with mesh

Mesh tape (fiber tape) is like this
