You may be asking yourself, "What is Belbien?"
"Is Belbien a laminate, a wallcovering, a veneer, or just some high-tech contact paper?" The answer is simple, all of the above, in that Belbien is actually all of the above that defines itself as an architectural vinyl cladding that is unique in the wallcovering industry in affordability, durability, and flexibility. For example, any wallcovering product that is adhered to another surface is a veneer or laminate and a product that is flexible enough to be applied to a wall surface may be a wallcovering. Finally, a product that is self-adhesive with release paper is usually contact paper or tacky vinyl.
By definition, Belbien is a self-adhesive vinyl film with a pressure sensitive adhesive and release paper that is applied to variety of surfaces that include wall panel systems, casework, store fixtures, columns, doors, elevators, healthcare workstations, etc. With a portfolio of over 400 finishes that include the natural look of wood veneers, marble, granite, ceramics, leather, metals and much more, Belbien provides a cost effective wallcovering solution that greatly reduces the overall cost and downtime which means businesses can continue to operate with little disturbance of daily operations.
Belbien has a variety of benefits that make it a perfect solution to many decorative problems. Some of which include the following:
Belbien is lighter than most on the market today. Belbien weighs less than 8 ounces a yard which makes it perfect for applications that include elevators, exhibit manufacturers, movable partitions such as office dividers and theater props.
Not including the release paper and adhesive the Belbien series is just .006 inches thick which is beneficial in renovation projects such as hospitals or offices where removing laminate may not be convenient. The thickness of Belbien makes it an ideal solution for areas that include the following:
Home Entertainment Centers
Bar and Lounge Centers
Wall Coverings, Etc.
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive System:
Belbiens' adhesive system is one of the most exceptional features of the product. In just 8-12 hours it will be at its maximum bonding strength.
Smoke & Fire Ratings:
As with any other interior decorating product Belbien must meet high risk standards to be used in areas such as all other decorative products. Belbien must fulfill high standards to be used in high-risk areas such as elevators, public transportation, health care facilities, airports, restaurants, office complexes, etc. According to the Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc. and the Loss Fire Protection Council in England, Belbien received the best performance category standard for the United States market.
Belbiens' thickness is so thin, it can be applied to many two-dimensional decorative surfaces such as doorframes, moldings, chair-rails, handrails, etc. It can also be tailored to a 90 to 180 degree angle such as cabinet doors, store fixtures, and on most all panel projects.
The durability of Belbien is unmatched by any other decorative product in the wallcovering industry today. However, Belbien should NOT be used where it might be abused or defaced by sharp instruments such as keys, knives, belt buckles, and other sharp objects.
Belbien has an excellent stain resistance to many substances that include:
Hydrochloric Acid (10%)
Sodium Hydroxide Solutions
Sulfuric Acid (10%)
Saturated Calcium Hydroxide
5% Salt Spray
Cleaning is actually extremely easy with just a household cleaner such as dishwashing liquid. In other cases, a solution of rubbing alcohol will typically remove the stain. For severe stains, lacquer thinner or acetone may be needed.
Minimal Down Time:
With any remodeling project one of the major issues within the commercial industry is down time. If the project has to be barricaded off this affects daily production which can be a serious financial loss.
The same is true when renovating elevators, store fixtures, etc . In most cases, the down time will cost the customer more money in lost time and/or sales than it cost to refurbish or renovate the project. Therefore, Belbien can be installed during non-working hours. Belbien is the perfect solution for many renovation projects.
Graphics by Design:
Belbien is available in an endless portfolio of designs and colors. Therefore, it can be used to create customized graphics by using in-lay and/or over-lay techniques. Company logos for elevator doors, entrances of hotels or office buildings, etc. can also be created by using special printing inks for the printing.
"Custom" Color Matching:
With the 500+ patterns and colors available Belbien products can still be custom matched to clients specifications. This includes creating combinations of patterns as well as embossed textures. It is also possible to convert any of the interior patterns to exterior.
