The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%. NB: Under the circumstances mentioned above, drying is notably slower than under standard circumstances (+23°C, relative humidity 50%).

Unpainted surfaces:
Remove all dirt, grease and dust. Prime wood surfaces with Jehu Primer and metal surfaces with Otex Adhesion Primer.

Previously painted surfaces: Wash down previously painted surfaces with Cleaning Agent (Maalipesu) and rinse carefully with water. Remove loose, flaking paint with a scraper and sand the whole surface. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with Presto Furniture Filler or Lacquer Putty. Sand the filled spots and remove sanding dust. If needed, prime with Jehu Primer. Metal surfaces and industrially with acid-curing paint or lacquer finished surfaces should be primed with Otex Primer.
Does not need to be diluted.
Stir Maalarin Valkolakka when necessary. Apply two coats by brush or roller.
One coat is enough on primed or previously with same colour painted surfaces.
