About Tikkurila Otex Adhesion Primer
Otex Adhesion Primer is a matt, quick-drying, special resin-based primer and undercoat. It can also be used as a stain-blocking primer and be tinted to any colour to match your topcoat and create a better depth of colour.
Otex is suitable for both interior and exterior, and can be applied on most types of surface including:
- PVC Plastic
- Zinc Coated Sheet Metal
- Surfaces previously coated with Alkyd or Acid Catalysed Paints
Surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, rust, loose material and surface contamination. Use Tikkurila products for mould removal and cleaning. Treat knots and resinous areas with Tikkurila Knotting Lacquer and a good quality wood filler for filling cracks, nail holes and blemishes. Ensure that existing painted and filled surfaces are thoroughly sanded smooth. Roughen aluminium, sheet metal and tiled surfaces with abrasive paper and if necessary mechanically abrade.

For airless spray: use a 0.011” – 0.015” spray tip and thin by up to 10% with spray thinner.
