R-35 wallpaper sizing


I removed some wallpaper and paste only to find out that the wallpaper hanger used R-35 sizing which is a tacky substance that cannot be removed with DIF, Vinegar or heat. What can be used to cover this tacky substance so the walls can be painted?

Never heard of it. Where are you from, and do you know the manufacture of it?

It is a Roman product ( I believe) and it is not sizing, it is a wall covering primer.
Seal it up with either an oil based primer sealer or Gardz.
Done

R-35 wallpaper sizing


I've run across that a number of times over the years, just recently in fact. Customer is concerned that I didn't get all the paste off, I have to go back after the cabinet installers are done. The first time ran across it I thought it was stubborn paste. To test for paste, dampen your fingers and you'll feel the tack of paste. If you wet your fingers with the Roman, no tack. I just do what Chrisn says, prime it with oil and I've never had any problems.
In a moment of honesty, where ever you see paste in my statement, I had accidentally used the forbidden term "glue". I had to go back and change it, lest the wallpaper cop, who makes his rounds about 4 a.m., comes by and cites me for ignorance.

Brush, nice signature line
Thanks
My tongue and my words are more likely to get me in trouble than recognized for their appropriateness or value.

OP, would that be "angel swings" or "angels wings". Couldn't be more opposite in meaning. Just curious.
