All non woven wallpaper represent paper baсked or non woven baсked with a vinyl coating with different density, which makes wallpaper strong and moisture resistant.

This type of wallpaper is used in rooms with extremely hygienic requirements like dining-rooms, kitchens, lavatories and bathrooms, entrance rooms. On the wallpaper of European manufacture there is an ecological safe symbol often to see (for every country its own). It means that the wallpaper doesn’t educe any dangerous matters and has micro pores, which let walls «breath». It means it could be used in every inhabited room. There are three main categories to be marked out. They differ one from the other in producing way, density, opinion and cost. A foamed vinyl makes rather thick wallpaper. The outside surface has a very marked relief. It is made by putting vinyl mass on a paper or non woven base with stenciled typing and processing of the half-finished product with high temperature in a special oven. The filler of the vinyl mass evaporates and pores form (it means vinyl «foams»).
A plane vinyl has vinyl paper as a base for its producing. The vinyl paper represents a paper with an uniform vinyl layer. Then an addition technological procedure, hot embossing, is used. One type of plane vinyl wallpaper is the so called heavy vinyl. A dense vinyl the so called «kitchen» has a vinyl paper as a base. The design is printed on vinyl layer and some special substances «inhibitors» (substances for foaming prevention) are put on. The half-product goes to the oven, where the vinyl layer increases uniformly excluding the places with inhibitors are put on.
