The surface to be painted must be dry, the ambient temperature at least +10ºC and the relative humidity of air below 60%.
Unpainted surfaces: Carefully remove any dirt and dust from new surfaces for ensuring the best possible adhesion. Prime new wood and wood fiberboard surfaces, metal surfaces and surfaces requiring special adhesion with Intact Primer. For absorbent porous surfaces, priming using a primer thinned 5–10% followed by intermediate sanding is recommended. Then, paint the surface with an unthinned primer. Prime knotty and yellowed wood with Multistop Primer.
Previously painted surfaces: Wash previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu detergent and rinse carefully with water. Remove loose paint with a scraper. Sand the hard, glossy and factory-painted surfaces non-glossy. Remove the sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with filler and sand the filled spots. Prime the filled spots and if necessary, the whole surface with Intact Primer.
Before use, stir the paint thoroughly down to the bottom and thin with water, if necessary. Apply 1–2 coats by brush, roller or spray. On large surfaces, it is recommended to first apply the paint with a roller or spray and then level the coat with a brush. We recommend the use of synthetic brushes with multi-branched bristles.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water immediately after use. Remove as much paint as possible from painting tools before cleaning. Tikkurila Pensselipesu Tool Cleaner is recommended to remove slightly hardened paint.
If needed, after approx. 1 month from painting, at the earliest: The surfaces are cleaned with a soft brush, sponge or cleaning cloth and neutral (pH 6-8) dishwashing solution. Clean very dirty surfaces with weakly alkaline (pH 8-10) washing detergent and e.g. cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully. The product achieves its final hardness and durability after one month under normal conditions, therefore the surfaces must be handled with care for a couple of weeks. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, clean them lightly with a soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.
Maintenance painting: If a surface has been previously painted with similar finishing paint, it can be maintenance painted directly without a primer. See Surface Preparation. above.
