Preparation

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

  • Wash the surface with Tikkurila Maalipesu cleaning agent or suitable cleaning solution and rinse carefully with water
  • Repair any cracks or holes with an appropriate filler
  • Sand down the surface matte
  • Remove the sanding dust
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
  • Thin with water, if necessary
  • Apply Otex Primer by brush, roller, paint pad or sprayer. On large surfaces, it is recommended to first apply the paint with a furniture paint roller, for example, and then level the coat with a brush. It is recommended to use synthetic brushes with multi-branched bristles
  • The surface can be finished after 5 hours with, for example, Helmi 30

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 for a few weeks after finishing to allow the paint will reach its final hardness. If the surfaces need to be cleansed soon after finishing they must be cleansed lightly with a soft brush or a damp cleaning cloth.
