shikkui fleece is made of fleece wallpaper coated with plaster paint.
The main ingredient of plaster, slaked lime, has various functions including deodorizing and antibacterial properties,
while the base material, fleece wallpaper, has excellent moisture control and durability, and is easy to install.
A plaster fleece combines the benefits of plaster and cloth.
Slaked lime, the main ingredient of plaster, has the functions of deodorant, anti-virus, antibacterial, VOC absorption and CO2 absorption.
Antibacterial and antiviral
Adsorbs ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and methylcaptan, the main causes of unpleasant odors. It is also a countermeasure against bacteria, germs, mold, and household odors such as the smell of cigarettes and pets.
Strong alkaline calcium hydroxide inhibits the growth and proliferation of bacteria and viruses.
An antibacterial activity value of 2.0 or higher, as determined by the test method specified in JIS Z 2801, is considered to be effective.

Adsorbs VOCs such as formaldehyde, a causative agent of sick house syndrome.
It can be effective in spaces with children, elderly people and pets with low resistance.
It is expected to lower the carbon dioxide concentration in the room and reduce its effect on the body.
“shikkui 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. Geographical locations such as Okinawa (Japan) and Thailand, well known for their high temperatures and humidity, have seen successful applications of our products.
High moisture absorption and desorption inhibits mold and condensation absorption and desorption properties were compared. shikkui 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 shikkui fleece.

“eterno” has high moisture absorption properties and is less prone to condensation than vinyl cloth.
“shikkui 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.
“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 shikkui 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 shikkui 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).
Because the backing is paper, it has low strength and is not able to respond to the movement of the building structure, and is prone to cracks and tears.
Concrete develops cracks (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.
“shikkui 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.
“shikkui 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, it can be applied to a 50-square-meter concrete substrate in about the same amount of time as a paint finish.
– The finish is both more beautiful and more durable than paint.
– The finish is more aesthetically pleasing and more durable than paint.

Light stains on fleece wallpaper can be scrubbed off with a sponge.
Fleece wallpaper can also be repainted over the finish. Stains that cannot be removed can be repainted with repair paint.
Small dents can also be removed by moistening the pulp and drying it with a hairdryer. This will expand the pulp and make it less noticeable. Partial patchwork repair is also possible.
