KABRIC

KC14

SPACE

Can anyone apply KABRIC?
KABRIC is developed as a do-it-youself product, and you don’t need any experience or to be professional in order to create your own KABRIC-wall. When purchasing products, a detailed user guide is enclosed, which we recommend you to read through, before you start the process. You can choose to apply KABRIC using a paint brush or a trowel. We recommend you read the user guide.

How many m2 does KABRIC cover?
KABRIC comes in 10L buckets that covers 8-10 finished square meters (2 layers).  

How long does it take to finish up one wall with KABRIC?
Due to few processes and the short drying times, a KABRIC wall can be done in one day. The time it takes to apply the layers, depends on one’s experience and technique.

Does a KABRIC wall demand Topcoat or other surface treatment?
KABRIC Topcoat is an additional choice and is not included in your purchase of KABRIC. In most cases Topcoat is not necessary, but if KABRIC is applied on a wall exposed to great wear and tear, it can be an advantage. Behind a stove, we recommend a matte varnish for mineral surfaces, due to the risk of stains.

Can KABRIC be refitted and mended?
Trying to cover up plaster on already plastered areas will always be visible to some extent. Therefore, we recommend you avoid reconstructing specific areas on your KABRIC wall.

Tip: If you got plaster leftovers, store it in a plastic bag to keep oxygen from entering. Make sure that storage conditions are cool but never below 0 degrees Celsius. That way you have some extra for future repairs.  

How can KABRIC be upheld and maintained?
Due to the vivid surface, KABRIC-walls are easy to uphold. A KABRIC-surface can be cleaned equivalent to paint with shine 5. If you prefer a more dust distant surface, a Topcoat can be purchased additionally. For a wall that requires  frequent cleanse and is exposed to great wear and tear, a matte varnish for mineral surfaces can be a supplementary solution.  

Where can KABRIC be applied?
KABRIC is developed for interior walls. The products can be used in bathrooms, as long as the products are not in direct contact with water. We do not recommend KC14-products behind a stove without supplementary treatment, due to the risk of stains.

Can KABRIC be applied in basements?
Due to the risk of humidity, we do not recommend DETALE-products in basements. Our products are not adequately vapor permeable, for this purpose.
On to which surfaces can KABRIC be applied?    
The surface on which KABRIC is to be applied has to be smooth, dry, equally absorbent and sustainable. KABRIC can be applied directly onto plaster, felt and even wall-painted surfaces, as long as the wall is equally absorbent. If in doubt, you should prime the base before beginning. Glass fabric must be totally covered with plaster and primed, before KABRIC is applied. Wallpaper must be totally removed, and the wall has to be properly cleaned. If you have other surfaces, please contact us directly for advice: hello@detalecph.com  

What is the difference between KABRIC og KC14?
KC14 is a colored filler while KABRIC is a paint-like plaster. Both products can be applied on walls but both the finish and the process is different from each other.  We therefore recommend that you learn about the different colours and structures the two different products have, before purchasing.

Can a KABRIC-wall be renewed ?
Yes! If you wish to renew the look of your wall, you can easily change an existing KABRIC-wall. Whether you would like to i.e. paint or apply felt, you only have to sand the wall with crass sandpaper and apply a suitable primer before you start your renovation.

When purchasing products, a detailed user guide is enclosed, which we recommend you to read through, before you start the process. You can find the user guide here . This instruction video is very helpful as well.

How many finished m2 does KC14-products give?
One ‘Set’ consists of 10L KC14 + 1L Topcoat. KC14 covers 5-7m2  (this calculation includes 2 layers of plaster and 2 layers of topcoat).

How long does it take to finish up one wall with KC14?
Due to the products’ drying times, one layer of plaster can be applied daily. Therefore, we recommend you estimate 3 days for your wall project.  The time it takes to apply the layers, depends on one’s experience and technique.

Can KC14 be refitted and mended?      
Trying to cover up plaster on already plastered areas will always be visible to some extent. Therefore, we recommend you avoid reconstructing specific areas. If it can’t be avoided, and you still need to do some “damage control”, the area should be covered with tape, plastered and sanded before topcoat is applied.  If you want to cover up small holes, plaster can be applied, and top coat enforced at the end.

Tip: If you have got plaster leftovers, store it in a plastic bag to keep oxygen from entering. Make sure that storage conditions are cool but never below 0 degrees Celsius. That way you have some extra for future repairs.

How can KC14 be upheld and maintained?
With 2 layers of topcoat, the KC14-plasters give a dust distant surface, equivalent to paint with shine 10. With frequent cleanse and over time, a new layer of topcoat can be applied for maintenance. Mixing 70 % water and 30 % topcoat, you can easily maintain your wall.    
Where can KC14-products be applied?  
KC14 is developed for interior walls. The product can be used in bathrooms, as long as the product is not in direct contact with water. We do not recommend the use of KC14-products behind a stove due to the risk of stains.

Can anyone apply SPACE?
SPACE has been developed as a do-it-yourself product and therefore you do not need to be professional in order to be able to create your own wall. When purchasing SPACE you will get a detailed user guide to guide you through the process. Not two SPACE walls are the same and part of the charm of SPACE is that you put your own personal touch on the wall. We recommend reading the user guide here. For any further queries we commend you to contact our retailers.

How many m2 does SPACE cover?
The best things come in small packages and that applies to SPACE as well. 1L suffices for approximately 7 square meter. This reach preconditions a foundation that is fully plastered with sand plaster in advance and is sanded so that it is even and smooth.  

How long does it take to finish up one wall with SPACE?
SPACE in itself only takes a very short amount of time to apply and it absorbs into the foundation and dries immediately. If your foundation is not already plastered with sand plaster, this should be done in a minimum of one day prior, in order for it to dry before the application of SPACE.

Does a SPACE wall require Topcoat or other surface treatment?
SPACE is a decoration product for walls exposed to normal household wear. If you wish to apply SPACE on a wall exposed to more wear, the wall should be sealed with a varnish to be finalized.  

Can SPACE be refitted and mended?
Repairs will often be visible and should therefore be avoided. Sometimes, if you are lucky, repairs can be made to appear as part of the lively look.

Tip: If you got leftovers of SPACE paste, store it in a plastic bag to keep oxygen from entering. Make sure that storage conditions are dark and cool but never below 0 degrees Celsius. That way you have some extra if needed for future repairs.

How can SPACE be upheld and maintained?
Due to the lively finish of SPACE dirt and stains can be difficult to see. A SPACE wall can be wiped off using a damp cloth, but if you wish to be able to wash it off often a varnish should be applied to finalize.

Where can SPACE be applied?
SPACE can be applied to indoor walls and ceilings. It is important that the foundation is dry, sustainable, stable and is equally absorbent throughout, before the wall is plastered, sanded and SPACE is applied.

Can SPACE be applied in basements?
Due to the risk of moist and humid conditions, we discourage the use of any DETALE-products in basements.  

How long does it take for SPACE to dry?
The SPACE paste absorbs into the foundation at application, so the wall will appear as final after just few minutes past application. 24 hours after the application SPACE will have fully hardened.

To which surfaces can SPACE be applied?
The SPACE paste should be applied to a sand-plastered, sanded and primed surface. It is important that the wall is 100% even and uniform. Our recommendation is to use a medium, grayish sand plaster of good quality.  

What is the difference between SPACE and the other DETALE products?
SPACE is a decorative wall-product just as KC14 and KABRIC. Contrary to the other two products, SPACE presents with a metallic finish that shimmers in lighting.

Can a SPACE-wall be renewed?
The wall should be thoroughly sanded using grain 120 before the wall can be treated with a new product.
