When decorating interior walls, polyurethane decorative panels offer a wide range of faux finishes, imitating materials such as stone, brick, textile, concrete or wood finishes.
In addition to the versatility of the finishes, there are two features that can be found in all polyurethane decorative panels, which are lightness and toughness. These features make polyurethane decorative panels a product that is easy to install and to handle, and for that reason they are so used in the industrial sector and, specifically, in the decoration area.
Installation of polyurethane decorative panels
We start by removing all the elements off the wall so that we can comfortably work.
In order to place the first plate, we draw some straight lines for the side area and for the area that is on the ground.
In order to cut, we use the jigsaw following the lines drawn.
For the electrical box, we mark its position on the polyurethane decorative panel and we make a hole using the drill and the hole saw.
Next, we cut the bottom of the panels that will occupy the first row using the jigsaw.
In order to fix the panels that form the first row, we use the cordless drill, the drill, the plugs and screws. We make holes in the panel joints so that they can be repaired later.
We put the screws into the plugs and the whole in the previous holes, helping us with a hammer to tighten the screw later until it is completely inside.
When placing the second panel of the first row, we must ensure that it fits in the first one, then we fix it with plugs and screws. Then, we can place the second row.
As for wall sockets, we have to make holes in the corresponding panels for the passage of cables. We will use the drill and a flat drill.
In order to cover the joints and the holes made by the screws, we use a polyurethane filler, flexible and resistant.
In order to clean the panels of any traces of filler, we just have to wipe with soap and water.
Once it has dried, we paint the filler with a special paint containing sand and imitating the texture and the color of the joints inside the panels.
We can now place the wall elements, filling the holes with the filler.
The same with the plugs.

How decorative panels are manufactured
Now that we know how to install decorative panels, we will explain how they are manufactured with a polyurethane system especially suitable for panels: Synthemad 9111-X-AE.
Synthemad 9111-X-AE system
The 9111-X-AE is a system suitable for the preparation of polyurethane rigid foam by moulding, with a moulded density of 250 to 450 g / l, CFCs and HCFCs free.
COMPONENT A: Synthemad 9111-X-AE, consisting of a mixture of polyols, catalysts, surfactant additives and foaming agents.
