Semi-Transparent Colours for Exterior Wood

The Tikkurila Valtti Color can be tinted to the beautiful range of Tikkurila Semi-Transparent Wood Finishes from the Colour Card. The final colour will depend upon timber species and original colour of the substrate. Valtti Color colourless is not recommended for exterior use.

Surface Preparation
To get the best results from valtti color, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, loose material and surface contamination.

Use Tikkurila Mould Removal Solution and Cleaning Solution.
Fill cracks, joints, nail holes with a good quality wood filler. 

Ensure that existing glossy, previously stained and filled surfaces are thoroughly sanded to ensure adequate penetration in to the surface of the wood.

Make sure that timber cladding, weather boarding and timber glazing beads, etc., are adequately fastened with non-corrosive fixings.

Good quality non-setting glazing compounds which form a protective skin should be used in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
Particular attention with regards to preparation should be given to wood such as Oak, Teak, Cedar, Douglas Fir, Mahogany and Idigbo, which contain oil and water-soluble tannin which may impair the drying, hardening or adhesion and possible staining of surface coatings.

When coating new woodwork it is recommended that a priming coat of Valtti Base should be applied to all exterior wood which has not been pre-treated or vacuum impregnated with an approved wood preservative.
Apply liberally on end-grain.

Valtti Color is not recommended for use with linseed oil putty.
