Mold resistant wall coverings
These mould resistant fiberglass wall coverings stop the development of mould and bacteria on wall surfaces for more than 10 years.
Mould and bacteria quickly develop under the influence of heat, humidity and some nutrients and can cause irritation, asthma and other ailments. The Mold-X treatment boasts an active ingredient that breaks the chain of bacteria and mould development, remaining active even after several coats of paint.
This makes the Novelio® Classic Mold-X mold resistant fiberglass wall covering ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and wet rooms in both private and public buildings.
- Mold-X active ingredient treatment prevents the development of bacteria and mould
- 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.
