Wet rooms and damp areas
The Feelings Watertight method complies with the waterproofing requirements of C2. Other surface treatment methods mentioned here are intended for damp spaces.
- The air, surface to be treated, and paint or lacquer temperature must all be at least +5°C. Relative humidity must be below 80%.
- The relative moisture of the wood must be below 16%. NB! Adequate humidity makes it easy to apply water-borne products, but prolongs their drying time.
- Always read the instructions on the product label before use.
- Undercoat new panels before fitting. Ensure that the undercoat is dry.
- Paint the panel tongues and grooves thinly so that the paint dries well.
- Choose an undercoat and topcoat of the same colour.
- When treating wood surfaces with semi-transparent finishes, the final colour of the wood depends on its species, hardness, and original colour, and the number of times it has been treated. Make a small test application first to ensure the final colour!
- For an even finish, always apply semi-transparent finishes in continuous strokes parallel to the grain.
- Stir products thoroughly both before and during application.
- If you are painting an entire room, begin with the ceiling and then paint the walls.
- Dry indoor air can cause water-borne paints to dry too quickly during painting.
