Cleaning of tools Remove excess paint from tools and clean them with water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting, if needed.
Surfaces are cleaned with a damp cleaning tool moistened in a neutral (pH 6-8) washing solution. Very dirty surfaces are cleaned with a weakly alkaline (pH 8-10) washing solution. The surface may not remain wet after cleaning. Follow the dilution instructions given by 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 damp cleaning cloth.
