Type II Vinyl Wallcovering

A medium to heavy-duty, commercial grade vinyl wallcovering is categorized as Type II. This product is designed to be used in high-traffic areas, such as schools, hallways, and retail spaces. Vinyl wallcoverings labeled as Type II typically weigh between 20 to 28 ounces per 54-inch linear yard, according to the Wallcoverings Association. A Type II wallcovering is manufactured to meet the minimum physical and performance characteristics set forth in Federal Specifications CCC-W-408. It must also meet the criteria for abrasion resistance, breaking strength, stain resistance, tear resistance, and coating adhesion. Wallcoverings are given a type by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
