To find out if this film is suitable for your project we recommend that you order a sample first and try it out on your surface. You will see how easy it is to apply,  clean and remove  

  • The vinyl is very easy to use just:

    1. fold down a few cm of the backing paper and stick the exposed area to the surface
    2. pull the backing paper with one hand and use a squeegee in the other hand
    3. start from the centre and squeeze out all the air with the squeegee.

    To achieve the best result we recommend that the sticky back plastic is applied with our d-c-fix® application kit. The applicator has a velvet edge which gives a smooth application that won't damage the surface. Shop application tools here. You can read more about sticky back plastic application here.

    This video shows how you apply the self-adhesive film to a bench top.

    1. Measure the width of the surface including the edges you would like to cover. Add 6-8cm for the excess trim. This determines the width of the roll you require (eg 54cm wide surface + 8cm = 62cm. Use a 67.5cm roll)
    2. Measure the length of all surfaces and add 8cm for each surface. This determines how many meters you need.
    3. The standard sizes of the rolls are 2m and 15m. It is best to use one length for each surface. If you need to add two pieces together then our wood grain designs will hide the joins the best.

    Here is a general guide of approximately how much vinyl the most common projects require:

    Appliance: 2m/1.5m x 67.5cm
    Fridge, dishwasher, washing machine
    Bathroom Vanity: 2 x 45cm x 2m
    Small single vanity with two doors and two side panels
    Bench top: 67.5cm x 2m
    Standard bench top 1.8m long x 60cm wide
    Chest of Drawers: 3 x 45cm x 2m
    3 large drawers outside dimensions max D: 40cm, H: 90cm, W: 90cm
    Dining Table: 90cm x 2.1m
    1.8m/2m long and up to 85cm wide
    Kitchen Cupboards: 67.5cm x 15m
    Medium sized: 2 tall cupboards, 6 small cupboards and 3 side panels and kick-boards
  • Follow these tips to care for your vinyl and get the longest length out of it:

    1. Clean with non-abrasive products. A damp cloth and soapy water is recommended.
    2. Avoid cleaning products containing chlorine or anything that can bleach the vinyl
    3. Avoid food with strong colouring like turmeric and curry spices, grinded coffee, food colouring and tomato sauce as they may stain the surface
    4. Never put anything that is warmer than 75°C directly on the vinyl surface. Pots directly from the stove are too hot but a cuppa is generally fine
    5. Use coasters and trivets to protect the surface from heat
    6. Use cutting boards at all times and lift objects instead of shuffle them to avoid scratching the surface.
    7. The vinyl can be used in damp rooms but seal the edges if they’re in direct contact with water.

Rio Ocean - Wide - 2 meter - PERFECT!!

The Rio Ocean sticky vinyl was a perfect match for my cute cottage kitchen. We are getting our home ready to list as a holiday rental and rather than remodelling the kitchen, we are just sprucing up.

The cupboard shelves now look fresh and clean - and super cute! It was so easy to apply thanks to the gridlines on the back, and easy to keep clean!

Thanks!

I was disappointed to see

I was disappointed to see the pattern at such a small scale ax u had the impression from the inline pictures the printed 'boards' would have been more like a hand width. Maybe worth including something for scale innthd pictures... great product though. Thanks
