Application conditions The surface to be treated must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +8°C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %. The surface to be painted may not be warm.
Priming Unpainted surfaces: Prime metal surfaces with Rostex Super Akva Metal Primer.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Tikkurila Kalustepesu Cleaning Agent and rinse carefully with water. Remove loose, flaking paint with a scraper and sand hard, glossy and industrially painted surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust.
Painting Stir the paint thoroughly down to the bottom and thin with water, if necessary (max. 5%). Apply by brush, roller or spray 1-2 times. Apply on large surfaces first with a roller and level with a brush. Multi-branched synthetic brushes are best suited for the work.
Cleaning of tools Remove excess paint from tools. Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended to be used to remove a bit hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting: The surfaces are cleaned with a soft brush, sponge or cleaning cloth and neutral (pH 6-8) dish washing solution. Clean very dirty surfaces with weakly alkaline (pH 8-10) washing detergent and e.g. cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully.
The product achieves its final hardness and durability after one month under normal conditions, therefore the surfaces must be handled with care during a couple of weeks. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, clean them lightly with a soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.
