Preparation Unpainted surfaces:
Clean unpainted surfaces from dirt and dust. If necessary, smooth the surfaces with a suitable Presto Light Filler. Prime with Varma Primer. Apply 1-2 coats of Harmony or Nova 7 tinted to the colour of the final product.

Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu Cleaning Agent and rinse carefully with water. If necessary, smooth the surfaces with a suitable Presto Filler. If the colour difference between the substrate and the finish is significant, we recommend to apply one coat of Harmony or Nova 7 tinted to the colour of the final product.
Coating Stir TUNTO Coarse well before use. Use a steel trowel to apply a layer as thick as the grain size of the coating. Rub the surface immediately (max. 15 min) pressing lightly with Tikkurila plastic float. If the float doesn't move lightly there is too much coating on the surface. Remove the excess from the surface with the steel trowel dragging along the coating. For homogenous surface reserve enough coating mixed in a single container to avoid possible colour difference.
Note! Wet fillers like Presto Light Filler are suitable to be used under Tunto Coarse. If dry fillers are used, they have to be cement reinforced.
Cleaning of tools Remove residual coating from the tools back in to the container to avoid blocking the drain. Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Clean surface by dry cleaning using a vacuum cleaner.

Handle the surfaces with care after the finishing treatment, as the product achieves the final hardness and durability after approx. one month in normal conditions.
