 Install Tips: Preparation   

 Note:  If the product comes in a plastic bag, make sure it is away from children or pets

 

 ArchPolymerTM  comes white primed and must be painted with 2 or 3 coats of high quality paint

 or Faux finished prior to installing - touch up after install

 

 GRG-NeoPlasterTM - prime and paint by others. Note: products a very heavy 

 

 Trace out the medallion's position with a pencil on the wall or ceiling to assist in the final placement

 

 Do not hang chandeliers from the medallion, they must be suspended from the electrical

 receptacle box which should be enforce to the framing.  Before you nail or screw into the ceiling

 make sure with a probe that there are no electrical wires in the proximity of where you will be

 nailing or screwing.

 

 The chandelier cupola or canopy does NOT go through the hole it resides on the medallion itself

 It can sit on the flat area or cover part of the pattern if necessary

 

 

 

 

  Install Tips: Get it up there!   

 

 The Approved Glue

 

 On various spots on the back surface, dab the approved construction

 adhesive

 

 Note: wear gloves read and follow the manufacturer's warnings

 

 The back of the medallion should not be painted and should be rough

 sand if necessary

 

 ArchPolymerTM

 Limited Warranty is void unless the approved adhesive is sold with the

 medallion or panel. Some construction adhesives are solvent based glue

 may melt the product

 

 

 

   Approved Construction Adhesive

 Fixing & Filling

 Once adhesive is applied

 Position the medallion in the tracing area

 

 ArchPolymerTM

 Use Painter's tape or screws to temporarily hold it in position

 You can use a "brad nailer pinner"  with a compression gun to adhere

  to the wall or ceiling surface

 

 GRG-NeoPlasterTM is heavy - use adhesive and countersink

 screws to hold the medallion in place permanently

 

 Allow 24 hours for the adhesive to dry

 

 Once dry use the approved Poly Spackling Compound

 to fill any holes and gaps between the ceiling and the medallion

 

 Wet sand OR let dry and sand the Spackle prior to painting  

 

 We do not recommend caulking as it may shrink and cannot be

  sanded. Only certain caulkings can be painted thus the spackling

  compound is a better product
