Application conditions The surface to be treated must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5˚ C and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Preparation The substrate has to be sufficiently solid, dry and hard before finishing treatment.

Unpainted surfaces:
Wash down unpainted surfaces to remove dirt, dust and salts. Wash mouldy, moss-covered surfaces according to instructions. Surfaces cast using formwork must be mechanically processed (e.g. sand-blasted) to create sufficient texture and remove glass-like, glossy hydrated cement. Level block and uneven concrete surfaces with Yki Reparation Mortar according to instructions.

Previously painted socles:
Clean surfaces from dirt, dust and salts. Wash mouldy, moss-covered surfaces with Tikkurila Mould Removal according to instructions. Remove flaking, poorly attached paint coats from previously painted surfaces. Select the method according to the strength of the substrate and paint type (e.g. steel brushing, high pressure washing with hot water or water-sand-blasting). Level the surfaces with Yki Reparation Mortar according to instructions.

Applicable national health and safety precautions must be followed in pre-treatment and coating of substrates containing asbestos.
Priming The substrate is recommended to be primed with Tikkurila Silicone Primer e.g. to reduce the discoloration based on salts.
Diluting Thinning: 0-10 vol-%.
Painting Stir the paint well before use. Apply 1-2 coats. If needed, the paint can be thinned for priming up to 20 % with water. Finishing is done with un-thinned paint.
Prepare enough paint from the same batch for one complete uniform surface to avoid possible colour differences. However, if you have to use paint from various batches, paint the overlapping area with a mixture of new and old batches (e.g. 1:1).
Always paint a uniform area without interruption and finish the painting in corners, balcony edges or similar places.
Yki Paint for Socles is not suitable for coating of horizontal surfaces of e.g. cold retaining walls or other similar horizontal surfaces.
Cleaning of tools Clean tools with water. To remove hardened paint, Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended.
Maintenance instructions Dirty surface painted with Yki Paint for Socles can be cleansed lightly using a pressure cleaner without detergent after one month from the painting at the earliest. The cleansing can cause permanent marks on the surface. Plan work carefully e.g. by determining the location of working joints in advance. Clean dry, loose dirt softly with a brush without rubbing the surface.
To remove mould or algae apply Tikkurila Mould Removal and rinse well.
NB. Always finish the surface again after mould removal.
Maintenance treatment Surface painted with Yki Paint for socles is repainted with the same paint,
