About Helmi Primer

Tikkurila Helmi Primer is a Matt finish, low odour waterborne acrylate primer for use on interior woodwork. It provides good adhesion, opacity and grain-filling properties, and provides a first-class foundation for coatings such as Helmi Furniture paint. Can also be used as a primer for the Feelings Furniture Paint System.

Helmi Primer is suitable for:

  • Interior woodwork
  • Panelling
  • Doors
  • Furniture
  • Kitchen Cabinetry
  • MDF
  • Surfaces previously coated with waterborne, alkyd or acid catalysed paints.

Preparation and Application

For best results with the Helmi Primer, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, rust, loose material and surface contamination. Use Tikkurila cleaning agents and mould removal solutions. Treat knots and resinous areas with Knotting Lacquer. Use a good quality wood filler for filling cracks, nail holes, blemishes, etc. Ensure that existing painted and filled surfaces are thoroughly sanded smooth.

Note: Discoloration of paint, especially noticeable within light colours, may occur over knots and resinous areas present in the wood. Particular attention with regards to preparation should be given to wood such as oak, teak, cedar, douglas fir, mahogany and idigbo, etc., which contain oil and water-soluble tannin which may impair the drying, hardening or adhesion of surface coatings and discolour the surface of same and, therefore, thorough degreasing prior to the application of Helmi Primer is essential.

Application and Thinning

Brush, roller or spray application. Polyester and nylon paint brushes are best suited for application For airless spray: use a 0.013” – 0.015” spray tip.

Thinning: if necessary thin by up to 10% with water.
