Overview

Tikkurila Optiva Primer is a matt water-based, highly-absorbent, acrylic primer for use on new and previously painted interior walls and ceilings. High-quality formula, this deep matt base coat will unify the primed surface, delivering better adhesion of the top coat while reducing its absorption, meaning it helps reduce the quantity of top coat needed and makes application easier.

  • For interior walls and ceilings - ideal for bathrooms

FAQ's

Q.What are the main differences between Tikkurila Otex Primer, Tikkurila Optiva Primer, and Tikkurila Helmi Primer?

Ans.

  • Tikkurila Helmi Primer is ideal for interior wood, metal, and MDF, offering good adhesion, high opacity, and low VOC levels.
  • Tikkurila Otex Adhesion Primer is highly adhesive for interior and exterior use on various surfaces including Glass, Tiles, UPCV and more, featuring a full matt finish and can be tinted in various colors.
  • Tikkurila Optiva Primer is designed for interior walls and ceilings, controls absorbency, has zero VOCs, offers a matt finish, and pairs perfectly with Optiva Top Coat.

Q. What type of Tikkurila primer should I use for plaster or drywalls?

Ans. To achieve the best results on plaster or drywalls, it's advisable to opt for a water-based, acrylic primer. An excellent option in this category is Optiva Primer, which is specifically designed for new or previously painted interior walls and ceilings. Primer plays a crucial role in enhancing the surface's readiness for painting, as it addresses the high porosity of plaster and drywalls. By using a primer, you can effectively reduce the absorption of plaster, preventing uneven paint application and promoting better paint adhesion.

Q.When repainting my walls, is it essential to apply primer every time, or can I repaint directly over the existing paint?

Ans.Primer is not always necessary for repainting. If you're using a similar color, you can lightly scuff sand and clean the surface, then apply a new coat of paint directly over the existing one. However, for sheen changes or significant color variations, using a primer can help achieve better results and reduce the number of topcoats required. Tikkurila's Optiva Primer is recommended for walls if you're painting over silk or similar paints, as it helps create a smooth matte finish before applying the topcoat.
