Cutting & Joining
When cutting always cut through the front to help eliminate fibre tear and when joining Silktrim mouldings we recommend mitre cuts be used and the joint glued using PVA adhesive.
Use the correct size finishing brads to suit the thickness of mouldings so that a minimum framing penetration of 25mm is reached. It is important not to over fix silktrim as this may causing bruising or splitting. Refer to our handy guide within the Silktrim installation download.
Before painting, fill all nail holes, lightly sand and clean. Apply two coats of quality Acrylic or Enamel paint, lightly sand between coats.Learn more
