APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be varnished must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5°C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%. Do not apply during strong sunlight or during damp and cold weather. Time the work so that the lacquer film will have enough time to dry before the evening dew.
Preparation
Untreated surfaces:
Remove dirt and dust from untreated surfaces. Wipe hardwood surfaces with White Spirit 1050 before treatment. Always prime bare exterior wooden surfaces with Valtti Base priming oil prior to applying lacquer.

Previously treated surfaces:
Wash down the surface with Cleaning Agent (Maalipesu) and rinse carefully with water. Remove old/loose lacquer with scraper. Sand the entire surface and remove sanding dust.
Lacquering
Stir Unica Super well before use. Prime untreated surfaces with Unica Super thinned with 20 % White Spirit 1050. Apply 2-3 thin even layers. For finishing coat thin 0 - 20%, if necessary. Apply 1-2 coats of unthinned Unica Super on previously lacquered surfaces. Sand the surface lightly between coats.
Note! Always prime exterior surfaces with full-gloss Unica Super 90.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with White Spirit 1050 or with Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).
Maintenance treatment
Observe the condition of the exterior surface and recoat when necessary. Longer maintenance interval can be obtained with a tinted product compared to a colourless product. If the surface was previously treated with Unica Super lacquer, all similar solventborne lacquers can be used for maintenance painting.
