How do I apply the Insta-DE2 onto a MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard)?

To apply the Insta-DE2 to a MDF, please follow the instructions below:\ Preparing the Surface: Before applying the Insta-DE2, the application surface must be dry, clean, smooth, and structurally sound.

1. Clean the surface to remove any dirt, grease, and wax.
2. Fill any depressions or holes with a drywall compound.
3. Use sandpaper to smooth any bumps and blemishes. Sand until the surface is completely flat.
4. Prime the surface with a high-quality oil-based primer.
5. Sand the surface again.

Applying the Insta-DE2:
1. Measure and outline the screen installation area.
2. Evenly apply a thin coat of adhesive* to the installation area using a paint roller.
3. Wait for the adhesive to dry.
4. Sand the surface until no adhesive residue remains.
5. Spray water onto the surface to activate the compound glue in the adhesive.
6. Carefully unroll the Insta-DE2 over the installation area, using the measured outline as a guide.

*Elite Screens recommends using a strong adhesive material such as Shur-Stik Heavy Duty Clay Wallcovering Adhesive. You can purchase this product easily online, or consult with your wallpaper installer for other options.
