Waterproof Wall & Ceiling Liner Panels
Poly-Tuf Panels are designed for a wide variety of residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural applications. The waterproof material is excellent for use around pools, car and truck washes, and other wet environments. Poly-Tuf Panels meet USDA guidelines for food contact and food processing, making the material ideal for restaurant applications. It’s also perfect for farms since the material in Poly-Tuf is safe for animals. Easy to install, easy to clean, easy to maintain, and easy to see why Poly-Tuf is the first choice for wall and ceiling liner panels.
“The Waterproof Panel that Cleans up Easily”
Economical and Tuf
Poly-Tuf Panels are made with recycled plastic, an inexpensive material compared to fiberglass panels. The fiberglass-free formulation is resistant to chemicals and won’t support the growth of mold or mildew. Scratches don’t show because the color goes all the way through the panel.
- Non-absorbent: no swelling, rotting, or water discoloration
- No irritating, harmful fiberglass dust
- Hygienic: does not contribute to “sick” building syndrome
- Not affected by acids, harsh chemical solvents or petroleum products
- For interior use
- Extended product life because scratches don’t show
- High-performance sanitary sheet that blends with all decors
Applying the Panels:
General: Poly-Tuf Flat Panels are intended for interior use only, not for exterior use. Make sure panels are clean and dry. Clean with general household cleaners, wiping in one direction only.
Adhesives: Latex or water-based adhesives are recommended. Follow adhesive manufacturer’s directions. Spread adhesive with notched trowel over the entire back side of panels, leaving no areas uncovered, to assure a proper bond.
Pre-Drilling: If using plastic rivets, pre-drill 3/8” diameter holes in panels to allow for thermal movement, then drill 1/4” diameter holes into wall to accept rivets. Follow rivet manufacturer’s directions.
Sizes: 48″x96″, 48″x120″
Colors: Bright White and Almond
Packaging: 100 pieces per pallet
Material: Minimum 70% recycled polyolefin content
Poly-Tuf flat panels must be installed over a solid surface such as gypsum wallboard. Do not install directly to studs or framing material. Surface must be sound, dry, and free of dust, dirt, oil, grease, or loose paint. Level surface by removing high spots and filling low areas, holes, or gaps. Make sure fillers or leveling compounds are fully cured and dry prior to panel installation.
To all for thermal expansion, cut flat panels so as to allow at least 1/4″ (6mm) gap at top and bottom, and to allow at least 1/8″ (3mm) gap at sides of each panel. Failure to do so may result in buckling of panels.
Allow at least 1/8″ (3mm) gave when cutting panels to fit around pipes, electrical outlets, etc. When using moldings (recommended), cut panels to allow 1/8″ (3mm) gap between panel edges and bottom of molding channels.
Cut panels with a fine- toothed hand or power saw. Use hole saw or utility knife to trim or to cut off shapes as required
Most soil and stains can be removed easily with water and household cleaners/detergents. Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or other abrasive materials or tools. To remove difficult stains (such as permanent markers), Pine-Sol® is recommended. To remove hard water stains, clean with a solution of 10% acetic acid in cold water, then rise thoroughly.
