About Tikkurila Feelings Furniture Primer
Feelings Furniture Primer is a matt finish, low-odour waterborne acrylate primer for use on interior woodwork. Providing excellent adhesion, opacity and grain-filling properties, the feelings primer is a first-class foundation for subsequent coats of Feelings Furniture Paint or the Helmi Furniture Paint.
Helmi Primer is perfect for priming interior wood surfaces including:
- Kitchen Cabinetry
- Cabinets and Built-in Furniture
- Repainting surfaces previously coated with waterborne, alkyd or acid catalysed paints.
Preparation and Application
For best results with the Tikkurila Feelings Furniture Primer, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, rust, loose material and surface contamination.
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 finished surface.
Prime bare interior wood overall and, if necessary, spot prime all bare areas on previously painted surfaces with Feelings Furniture Primer or Otex Adhesion Primer. Otex Adhesion Primer is preferable on wood that contains substances which may ‘bleed through’ and cause staining to the finished surface. Prime all bare metal and potential rust spots with Rostex Super Metal Primer.
Application and Thinning
Brush, roller or spray application. Polyester and nylon paint brushes are best suited for the application of Feelings Furniture Primer.
For airless spray use a 0.013” – 0.015” spray tip
Thinning: if necessary thin by up to 10% with water.
