Bathroom Wall Panels in any colour & DigitalArt Printed Splashbacks- by ISPS
ISPS would like to share with you some very important DIY tips to choosing your DIY Polymer Splashback category.
ISPS provide value and DIY interior tips as a part of our service.
Tip 1: Choosing your DIY Acrylic Splashback & Supplier.
Before you buy any product enquire how long the company has been trading?
Choosing your DIY Acrylic Splashback, Bonethane Splashback & Wall Panels
Before you buy any product ask is the company you are dealing with using copycat tactics from other websites to lure you in. Do they state they use the highest grade Acrylic and piggy back off the manufactures credibility, yet lack to explain how their coating conforms, bonds and weathers with the material.
Did you know that even if you are getting the best material, the "BESTACRYLIC THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE GLASS" once the material is applicated with a coating this changes the structural integrity of the product if not tested quality tested. ISPS quality tests all our range and we have the reputation and long working history to support this.
Anyone can paint Acrylic, its how long it lasts is the question.....
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER
Are their warranties & testimonials worthy? Do they cover structural defects, coatings delaminating, UV warranties? Are you choosing the right splashback category for your intended environment application? Do you require to prep wall prior to install & do their products leave a ripple effect after placement because of the quality of the material? Are the install instructions simplified? Are you being provided Australian standard compliant information for the intended use of your application? Does the supplier hide hidden disclaimers regarding the application of their product and process of their products? All very important questions before you make your decision..
This image to the right clearly shows you what happens to "painted or sprayed & printed sheets when not properly processed. A shop fitters nightmare. As a consumer it can hurt your pocket and cause distress. You may not notice straight away but give it a year and you will be furious!
ISPS Innovations polymer range come with GRIPTEK backing, this covers you for colour fading, delamination, colour consistency & silicone bleeding when using neutrel cure silicone. With GripTek there is no need to paint the wall a neutrel colour. GripTek backing can also be applied to following fused acrylic brands, PLEXIGLAS® high gloss, Vistelle & Zenolite (Vistelle is available at Bunnings Warehouse) GripTEK is applied to our digital prints, we do not use a double ink process which is prone to lifting and delaminating.
Tip 2: What grade of material do you require for your project?
Do you require Glass, Acrylic Splashbacks for your project or the original DIY High Heat Polymer Splashback Bonethane?
- SOME HISTORY: Bonethane as seen on Better Homes and Gardens is a high heat polymer that cuts, drills, planes without the hassle of cracking or splitting, deals with heat better than all acrylics in the market place and is a great insulator for electro static, used in hospitals, clinical laboratories, commercial and domestic kitchens, shop fit-outs, showers, bathrooms, outdoors and has been servicing the DIY & commercial industry since early 2000, trusted and accredited through our working history.

Once you have narrowed your choice to budget you need to look at durability and the warranties it covers.

Tip 4: Colour choice
Colour Choice. Before you choose your coloured splashback you need to take a step back and look at the total area you are working with. Most companies will offer a standard set colour range with each category, whilst other companies offer unlimited colour range effects and digitally printed processes with protective backings. When choosing your splashback, consider the colours of your walls, kitchen doors, benchspace and most importantly the level of light in the space you are working with. ISPS Innovations match colour by eye not by pressing a button, we are dealing with optical depth and clarity to create your colour choice, there for it is important that we are provided with a colour chip to achieve your request.
Tip 5 Do I get a practice piece of DIY splash with my order?
ISPS as always look out for our clients we provide a practice piece of IPA Acrylic or Bonethane with every order that is delivered. With our packages we also supply, free trim, custom fillerEFX & cuts are included, making the DIY experience even easier and time efficient not to mention visually rewarding. If you require a trades person to install we can arrange this also.
Tip 6 National after hours support for my DIY project
Ensure that the supplier you are dealing with is available to assist you with your project and provide a land line as well as after hours care. All ISPS products are supported by after hours care nationally across Australia.
Tip 7 Joins & Filler EFX. Where should they go?
Joins in a splashbacks. Question where your joins appear. You should create joins in areas where other seams appear this keeps the look symmetrical. These areas can be dressed with joining strips to create a uniformed finish. Other visually rewarding looks are the custom filler EFX as seen below. ISPS designs our filler EFX based on the colour of your project. These fillers are designed to run through the course of the sheet, vertically or horizontally capturing the colour palette. Because they are uniformed to blend with your splashback & appliance colour choice it creates a platform for continuous length & unvarying finishes.
Tip 8 What do I place behind my cooktop?
Always be aware of what to place behind your cook-top. Acrylic is not suitable for behind any cooktop, see our youtube clip Bonethane Premium VS Acrylic candle burn test. It is an eye opener & not to be missed. While Toughened glass Inserts, Stainless steel or tiles can be an attractive alternative for behind your cook-top area, it is still important to coordinate the colour scheme for your cook-top or appliance colours in your choice of insert colour application.
