Type II wallcovering

Type II 20 oz wallcovering is an American standard that refers to commercial grade wallcovering, specially made for high traffic commercial spaces.

Some examples would be hotel lobbies, patient waiting rooms, and office meeting rooms.

Type II wallcovering is thicker than Type I and therefore can withstand more wear and tear.

To qualify as a Type II wallcovering, according to CCC-W-408D specifications, a vinyl needs to meet or exceed a specific requirement in:

  • Wash-ability
  • Scrub-ability
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Breaking Strength
  • Crocking (the tendency of a fabric or paint to give off color when the surface is rubbed, in this case wallcovering)
  • Stain Resistance
  • Tear Resistance
  • Blocking Resistance
  • Coating Adhesion
  • Cold Crack Resistance
  • Color Fastness
