Application conditions The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +10°C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Preparation Unpainted surfaces:
Remove all dirt and dust from new surfaces. Smooth the surfaces with a suitable Presto filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface.

Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with diluted Maalipesu cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Sand hard or glossy surfaces matt and remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with a suitable Presto filler and sand the dried surface.
Painting Stir Siro Matt well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply one or two coats with a roller, brush or spray.
Cleaning of tools Remove excess paint from tools and clean with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended to be used for cleaning hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions Cleaning earliest abt. 1 month after application of the finish.

The surfaces are cleaned with a well squeezed damp sponge or cleaning cloth and neutral (pH 6 – 8) washing detergent. Dilution instructions given by the detergent producer have to be followed by preparing the washing dilution. The surface must be dried after the cleaning.

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 lightly with a damp cleaning cloth.
