ECO FLEECE is a wallpaper made of pulp and other materials and coated with water-based paint at the factory.
The matte finish of the water-based paint gives it a beautiful look, just like a painted wall.
The natural unevenness of the overlapping, non-woven fibers, creates a sense of depth in the expression of the eco-fleece.
This adds to the charm of the product. The non-woven fabric gently reflects light and works well with indirect lighting.
There are three variations of 11 colors and three patterns with a particularly wide range of variations in white to light colors.
This allows for subtle nuances to be expressed.
ECO FLEECE boasts high moisture absorption and desorption thus reducing condensation and mold formation. It can reduce the deterioration of buildings due to condensation and health hazards caused by mold. ECO FLEECE has a sustained and successful track record in locations such as Okinawa (Japan) and Thailand, areas known for high temperatures and humidity.
High moisture absorption and desorption inhibits mold and condensation
ECO FLEECE were attached to plasterboard and the moisture absorption and desorption properties were compared.
ECO FLEECE were 105g / ㎡, while normal vinyl cloth absorbed 43g / ㎡.
The amount of moisture released was 16 g / ㎡ with vinyl cloth, while it was 77 g / ㎡ for ECO FLEECE.

“eterno” has high moisture absorption properties and is less prone to condensation than vinyl cloth.
ECO FLEECE is a wallpaper with high strength, moisture resistance and long-lasting use. It can be repainted more than 10 times with water-based paints.
In fact, wallpapers made from similar materials (*pre-eterno brand) are still in use today and have been repainted a number of times over a 30-40 year period.
“eterno” has high tensile strength. This makes it resistant to tearing when the wall surface is displaced or moved by cracks or distortions in the building.
The tensile strength of ECO FLEECE was compared with vinyl cloth.
The tensile strength of vinyl cloth was 46 N / 15 mm in the vertical direction and 31.4 N / 15 mm in the horizontal direction, while the tensile strength of ECO FLEECE was 133 N / 15 mm in the vertical direction and 76.4 N / 15 mm in the horizontal direction. It was.
[Methods] Complies with JIS P 8113. The tensile strength of paper and paperboard is measured using a constant-speed extension tester. In-house research
This is a paper-lined wallpaper with a sheet of polyvinyl chloride resin (PVC). Due to the fact the backing is paper, it has low strength and is not able to respond to building structure movements, therefore becoming prone to cracks and tears.
Concrete can develop cracks due to building movement and distortion. When painting directly onto concrete, if cracks appear in the substrate, the finish will crack as well.
Concrete painted wall with cracks in it
The high strength fleece “eterno” does not follow the cracks and keeps a good appearance.
Plasticizers are added to vinyl cloth to make PVC resin (PVC) more flexible, but UV light exposure releases the plasticizer. In the process, the flexibility is lost from the PVC. As a result, the vinyl cloth will harden in 5-6 years and the joints in the cloth will open up. In addition, degradation and yellowing of PVC without plasticizer will occur. In this respect, the fleece wallpaper without plasticizer is unlikely to deteriorate.
Discarded vinyl cloth
eterno is a wallpaper made of natural materials.
It is an Eco-friendly and highly safe wallpaper.
You can use it with confidence from children to the elderly.
“ECO FLEECE” is part of the “eterno” series, FSC Certified, which is rare in Japan.
※ FSC ・・・ FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
ECO FLEECE can be painted over with a water-based paint. This reduces waste as there is no need to remove the existing wallpaper when renovating.
“eterno”, unlike vinyl cloth, does not use plasticizers. Plasticizers contain endocrine disruptors, which can cause sick building syndrome.
Plasticizer-free fleece wallpaper does not emit VOCs and poses no threat to sick building syndrome.
In Japan, F☆☆☆☆, the highest of the four grades of formaldehyde emissions set by JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) and JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standard) , has been certified.
“eterno” is a non-combustible material certified by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
“eterno” is a product that combines the beauty of the finish with ease of installation.
For example, when applied to a 50-square-meter concrete substrate,
it is more beautiful and durable than paint, and takes about the same amount of time as a paint finish.+ The finish is more aesthetically pleasing and more durable than paint.
