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 % during painting and drying.
Preparation New untreated wooden surfaces:
Remove dirt and loose material from new surfaces. Wash off mold with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto (Mould Removal) or with Tehopesu (cleaning agent) according the directions for use. Prime surfaces as soon as possible with Valtti Pohjuste or Valtti Akvabase priming oil. Protect rusting parts, e.g. nail heads, with Rostex Super anti-corrosive primer. Remove loose resin from knots. Apply one priming coat of Ultra Primer or Öljypohja. Finish with one or two coats of Pika-Teho. Treat end grains with special care.

Industrially primed and previously painted surfaces:
Remove dirt and loose material from surfaces. Wash down moulded surfaces with Homeenpoisto (Mould Removal) or with Tehopesu (Power Clean) solution according to directions for use. Remove loose paint from previously painted wood surface with a scraper and clean the surface with a wire brush. Treat bare wooden surfaces with Valtti Pohjuste priming oil and prime them once with Ultra Primer or Öljypohja. Prime industrially primed surfaces and previously with acrylate paint treated surfaces once with Ultra Primer or Pika-Teho. Prime previously with oil paint treated surfaces once with Pika-Teho or Öljypohja. Finish the surfaces with one or two coats of Pika-Teho depending on the colour difference and condition of the surface.
Painting Stir Pika-Teho well and thin with water, if necessary. Apply Pika-Teho with brush or airless spray.

Reserve enough Pika-Teho for one uniform surface and mix into one can to avoid possible colour differences.
There is resin and other coloring extractives in the wood, particularly in knots. They may cause discoloration or seepage of resin through the paint surface as a result of temperature and humidity fluctuations. Using a primer (Öljypohja or Ultra Primer) reduces discoloraton.
Maintenance painting: Pika-Teho can be repainted with Pika-Teho or Ultra house paints.
Cleaning of tools Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu Tool Cleaner is recommended to remove slightly hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Handle the surface with care, ultimate durability is reached in approx. 4 week. After treatment surface can be cleaned lightly with a soft brush, a damp rag or a mop.

The surface can be cleansed with Huoltopesu at the earliest. 1 month after the painting work (1 part of Huoltopesu to 10 parts of water). Clean stains and dirty surfaces with a stronger (1:1) solution. Rinse surfaces and let dry.
