Wall coverings for better indoor air quality
Novelio® CleanAir is the ideal solution for those looking for perfect indoor air quality.
CleanAir treatment is a solution for improving indoor air quality. Formaldehydes are mainly released by laminated furniture, new floorcoverings and some paints or glues - this is why it is highly present after a renovation or a construction. This organic component is trapped within the wallpaper and not released back into the air, and the principle remains active even after several coats of paint.
The Novelio® CleanAir formaldehyde resistant wall coverings also retain other glass fiber characteristics, such as impact and fire resistance. This makes the range ideal for schools, hospitals, hotels and other private or public buildings.
- 50% absorption of formaldehydes in the air for 10 years or more
- Impact and fire resistant
- Durable and decorative

What kind of glue should I use on the fiberglass wallcoverings?
We recommend ready-to-use glue formulated for fiberglass wall covering or a standard glue for wallcoverings – e.g. ADFORS glue, Metylan Ovalit. For best results, use ready-mixed glue, not the powdered ones. Although powdered glues is less expensive, it's more demanding to mix properly and provides less adhesion for Novelio wall coverings.
Are Novelio fiberglass wall coverings safe and non-toxic ?
Yes, our fiberglass wall coverings are safe and non-toxic, due to the size of the fibers used in the production of Novelio wall coverings (close to 10 microns (μm) in diameter).
Fiberglass is recognized by the World Health organization as non-carcinogenic, if above 3 microns (μm) in diameter.
How should the wall coverings be applied on internal and external corners?
Novelio wall coverings have a specially designed coating that ensures trouble-free folding and bending around internal and extenal corners.
At least 20cm of material should extend past the corner on each side to ensure proper adhesion.
What method should I use to join the edges of the wall coverings?
All ADFORS Novelio fiberglass wall coverings feature precisely cut edges and are designed to be applied edge to edge.
Pay close attention to the edges of the roll, as any damage to them will make the seam more visible.
For non-woven textiles (vlies), you can perform a double-cut to make the joints invisible.
How should the wall coverings be installed in humid environments?
Humidity has no effect on the installation of the fiberglass wall coverings. You just need to ensure that the proper glue is used for application in humid environments.
Please keep in mind that Novelio wall coverings should not come into direct contact with water (e.g. from a shower), unless this is something specifically designed within the system.
