One key component to these changeable wall wraps is a low tack/removable adhesive. The lower adhesion property is necessary to avoid damaging of the wall surfaces. Removable adhesives allow for removal of the graphic without any glue residue Aggressive adhesives are know for pulling paint or (even worse,) damaging drywall. We’ve seen some films actually delaminate the paper layer off of drywall panels. This is surely expensive to fix, and sometimes requires replacement of the affected drywall panels. The IDWraps team has invested heavily in the testing of various manufacturers wall films. For every application, it is important that a balance exists between enough adhesion to prevent failure, and adhesive constraint so walls are not damaged upon removal.
