APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Preparation Unpainted surfaces:
Remove dirt and dust from the surfaces. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Tikkurila Presto or Prestonit filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu cleaning detergent and rinse carefully with water. Fill cracks and holes with a suitable Tikkurila Presto or Prestonit filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Painting Stir Siro 2 well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply 1-2 times with a roller, spray or brush.
Cleaning of tools Remove the excess paint from tools before cleaning with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended to be used for cleaning hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting, if needed.
The surfaces are dry cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, soft brush or dust towel. Cleaning with a damp cloth might leave a mark on the surface.

The product achieves its final hardness and durability after one month under normal conditions, therefore the surfaces must be handled with care during this time. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, dry clean them with a vacuum cleaner, soft brush or a dust towel.
Maintenance treatment Surfaces painted with Siro 2 can be recoated with same type of water-borne paint. See preparation.
