Installation of polyurethane decorative panels

If we want to decorate interior walls, decorative polyurethane panels offer a wide range of faux stone, brick, textile, concrete or wood finishes.

In addition to the versatility of the finishes, there are two features that we can find 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.

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.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-03 Step 3
In order to cut, we use the jigsaw following the lines drawn.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-04 Step 4
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.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-06 Step 6
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.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-07 Step 7
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.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-10 Step 10
In order to cover the joints and the holes made by the screws, we use a polyurethane filler, flexible and resistant.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-11 Step 11
In order to clean the panels of any traces of filler, we just have to wipe with soap and water.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-12 Step 12
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.
 montaje-de-panel-decorativo-de-poliuretano-paso-13 Step 13
We can now place the wall elements, filling the holes with the filler.

The same with the plugs.

Polyurethane system for Synthema 9111-X-AE castings Factsheet

Description

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.

Components

  • COMPONENT A: Synthemad 9111-X-AE, consisting of a mixture of polyols, catalysts, surfactant additives and foaming agents.
  • COMPONENT B: H30 Isocyanate, MDI – diphenyl methane diisocyanate.

Applications

The system is designed to manufacture mouldings, such as decorative panels, of a high technical value in a wide range of density.

Especially suitable in different sectors such as the furniture industry, automotive, technical parts, furniture for appliances, computers, mouldings, ornaments, frames, etc.

This system has additives which improve the reaction to fire.

Application conditions

The system can be prepared both in high (100-150 bar) and low pressure machines.

The recommended temperature for the components is 22º±2ºC, and for the mould 40º to 50ºC.

Prior to its loading in the machine, the component A (Polyol) must be homogenized for 5-10 minutes with a suitable stirrer.

The flow of the machine must be calculated according to the weight of the finished part and the reaction times of the foam; the injection of the product in the mould must be done in a shorter time than that of the cream.

To achieve good quality in the finished part, we have to consider the design of the mould, the thickness and shape of the insert, the gas outlet holes and the inclination of the mould, as well as the type and composition of the mould release agent.
