Preparation
Unpainted surfaces:
Concrete floors: Remove cement glue coat with a grinding machine. Remove grinding dust.
Wooden floors: Remove all dirt, oil, dust and grease.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu (Cleaning Agent), rinse thoroughly with water and allow to dry. Remove old, flaking paint. Sand the surfaces carefully and remove sanding dust.
Application
Stir the paint thoroughly before use.
Concrete floors: Apply Betolux Akva Primer OR one coat of Betolux Akva diluted 10% with water to new concrete floors. Finish new and previously painted concrete floors with 2-3 coats of non-diluted Betolux Akva. Use a short-pile roller or synthetic brush for smaller surfaces.

Wooden floors: Apply 1-2 coats of Multistop Isolation Primer on bare wood surfaces. Finish with 2-3 coats of non-diluted Betolux Akva. Use a synthetic brush. NB. Paint will dry quickly, so plan your work beforehand to avoid paint joints. Apply lengthwise to several planks at once, and only make repairs when the paint has dried.
