Answer: yes, on a dry wall, without fat and flat.

The installation of PVC paneling can actually be done without battens, it all depends on the nature and condition of the wall. Installation is then done by gluing, screwing or even stapling. When gluing the PVC paneling, make sure that the wall is completely dry and free from greasy substances. It is glued using a neoprene type glue. For stapling and screwing, the wall must be sound, flat and above all without irregularities. For fixing with staples, use stainless staples for plasters. For screwed installation, use 6 mm dowels and countersunk or flat head 4 mm screws. In these three cases, the installation of PVC paneling can be done both horizontally and vertically, or obliquely or asymmetrically. You too, send us your brico question
