Preparation

Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from dirt and grease.

  • Previously painted surfaces: Wash the surface with Tikkurila Maalipesu cleaning agent or suitable cleaning solution and rinse carefully with water. Remove loose, flaking paint or lacquer with a scraper and sand the whole surface. Repair any cracks or holes with appropriate filler. Sand the hard, glossy and factory-painted surfaces to non-glossy and thoroughly dust surface. Remove sanding dust before starting painting. Prime with Tikkurila Helmi Primer or Otex Akva adhesion primer.
  • Unpainted surfaces:f Prime new wood and wood fiberboard surfaces with Helmi Pohjamaali. For absorbent porous surfaces, priming using a primer thinned 5–10% followed by intermediate sanding is recommended. Then, paint the surface with an unthinned primer.
  • Prime surfaces which needs special adhesion with Otex Akva. Metal surfaces need to be primed before application.
  • Prime knotty and yellowed wood with Multistop Primer.
  • Application

    Always test a small area of the surface to be painted to ensure you are happy with the finished results

    • Stir thoroughly before use to ensure the paint is completely mixed.
    • Apply 1 or 2 coats of Helmi 10 by brush, roller or sprayer.
    • Before application, thin if necessary, up to 5% with water, in sufficient amount of paint from one production batch to avoid possible colour difference.
    • On large surfaces, it is recommended to first apply the paint with a roller and then level the coat with a brush.
    • If the undercoat is an alkyd primer, the final adhesion with the primer is reached after two weeks of applying the primer. During this time, avoid sticking masking tape, for example, on the surface.

    Always follow manufacturer's instructions found on the tin

    Aftercare & Storage

    Store the paint in dry conditions and protect from extremes of temperature.

    After use firmly secure the lid.

    If needed, at the earliest after approx. 1 month from painting: Clean the surface with a neutral (pH 6-8) dishwashing solution and a soft brush, sponge or cleaning cloth. Clean very dirty surfaces with a lightly alkaline (pH 8-10) dishwashing solution and with cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully. The surfaces must be handled with care during few weeks after finishing as the paint will reach its final hardness in normal circumstances after one month. If the surfaces need to be cleansed soon after finishing they must be cleansed lightly with a soft brush or a damp cleaning cloth.

    FAQ's

    Q.Do Helmi topcoats function as self-undercoating paints?

    Ans.If the surface has been previously painted, Helmi topcoats can function as self-undercoating paints. In the case of pre-primed furniture, you can gauge Helmi topcoat adherence by obtaining a sample pot.However, if the surface is bare wood, it is advisable to use a primer before applying Helmi topcoats.

    Q.I've observed discoloration on my radiators caused by the previous topcoat I applied from a different brand. What can I utilize to avoid this yellowing?

    Ans. If you're experiencing yellowing on your radiators with the previous topcoat from a different brand, consider using Tikkurila's Helmi 10 or Helmi 30 for a new topcoat. These paints are specifically designed not to yellow when exposed to heat. Additionally, if you're painting over bare metal or a significantly different color, using Helmi Primer can help ensure better coverage and adhesion while preventing yellowing. It is advisable to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for preparation and application to achieve the best results.
