Frequently Asked Questions

Q.   If I wallpaper can I redecorate?

A.   Yes, no problem. SEMPATAP THERMAL has a fibreglass surface and will not be affected by using a steam stripper or hot soapy water. Should you accidentally damage SEMPATAP THERMAL with a wallpaper scraper, make good with polyfiller or plasterer’s mate.

Q.   How long will it last?

A.   As long, if not longer than plasterboard. The Energy Saving Trust give SEMPATAP THERMAL a life expectancy of thirty years.

Q.   Will it stop condensation?

A.   SEMPATAP THERMAL is excellent for these problems because it makes the wall surface warm and moisture will not condense on warm surfaces. If you have black mould on the walls you must treat it first with MGC MOULD ERADICATION KIT.
