PAPERTIGER® Wallcovering Scoring Tool perforates waterproof wallcoverings so remover solution can penetrate and resolubilize paste. PAPERTIGER's patented scoring disks open surface holes to let DIF® penetrate and attack the paste.

In 1985, Zinsser introduced a tool that answered the need for a better way to perforate waterproof wallcoverings. This wallcovering tool, called PAPERTIGER, was as revolutionary an advance in its field as DIF® was in remover solutions. With PAPERTIGER, scoring became faster, easier and safer for both worker and wall.

The latest models - Multi-Directional PAPERTIGER - are even faster and easier to use than the original one-direction models. They let the user score an entire room in minutes.

A new "Tiger Claws" cutting module of unique design is responsible for this improvement. One model has a single cutting module; the other, preferred by professionals, has three.

PAPERTIGER is easy to use. Just make circular movements across or up and down the wall to score the wallcovering. The PAPERTIGER penetrates through the wallcovering without damaging the wall itself. Other perforating devices use spikes which easily gouge drywall or plaster and cause unnecessary repairs to be made before proceeding with the wallcovering job. The PAPERTIGER follows the contour of the wall including hollow areas or textured wallcovering surfaces. The cutter assembly self-aligns to both the wall and the direction of travel, thereby allowing the tool to be moved in any direction the user desires.

PAPERTIGER won't rust, corrode, or wear out. The hardened steel teeth remains sharp for many rooms of wallpaper removal. Replacement cutting assemblies are available, but are usually not necessary.

Extended Information:
Firmly grasp the PaperTiger and place it against the wall.
Move it in a circular or linear motion so that perforations are
made in the wallpaper no less than one inch apart. The more
holes, the better the penetration of the wallpaper stripper.
The rotating scoring heads allow movement in any direction.
Do not press, let the tool do the work.  Excessive pressure
may damage the wall surface. Use caution when handling.
Blades may be sharp.
Apply DIF Wallpaper Stripper to dissolve old paste and loosen
wallpaper. Scrape off loose wallpaper. Use Paper Scraper to
remove the wallpaper without gouging the wall. To remove
residual adhesive, re-apply DIF Wallpaper Stripper. Rinse with
clean water.
