What is the thickness of Belbien?

Belbien is packaged in rolls that are 1.2 meters or 48” wide and 50 meters or 54 yards lo so that Belbien can be applied to most doors, partitions and high columns without creating seams.
How much down-time should I expect while having my Belbien installed?
In reality the down-time is minimal for most Belbien applications.

Is Belbien like "contact paper" because they both have an adhesive with a release paper?
