Painting Stir Siro 12 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 cleaned with a dry brush or dust towel. Dirty surfaces are cleaned with a damp cleaning tool moistened in a neutral (pH 6-8) washing solution. The surface may not remain wet after cleaning. Follow the dilution instructions of the detergent manufacturer.
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, clean them gently with a dry or damp cleaning cloth
