Dust dry in approx. 1 hour.

Ready to use hardness after 2-3 days.
Lower temperature (approx. +15°C) and higher humidity (50-70 % RH) will make the open-time of the paint longer and the work easier.
Remove all dirt and dust carefully to obtain good adhesion. Treat knots with Oksalakka Knotting Lacquer. Prime new wood and wood fibre board surfaces with Helmi Primer or Otex Akva adhesion primer. Prime metal surfaces with Rostex Super Akva or Rostex Super metal primer. Prime absorbent surfaces first with a primer thinned with 5-10%, and sand. Prime surface after that with an unthinned primer.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu 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. Fill holes and cracks with Presto Furniture Putty or Rapid Filler and sand the filled parts. Prime with Helmi Primer or Otex Akva adhesion primer.
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.
Note! If alkyd primer is used as a primer, the final adhesion into the primer is achieved after 2 weeks from the finishing painting. During this time avoid e.g. the usage of masking tape.
