Acrylic primer with good adhesion properties.
For priming of plaster, concrete, filler treated, gypsum, chipboard and wood fibre board surfaces. Recommended especially as a primer for Harmony, Joker, Remontti-Ässä and Lumi interior paints, for new surfaces and for maintenance painting of previously painted surfaces.
Varma Primer is a good choice under wallpapers. In wallpapering please note that the filler substrate must be made with a suitable Presto ready-to-use filler or cement reinforced dry filler, which does not easily dissolve in water. Varma Primer has a good adhesion on galvanized surfaces.
Interior walls and ceilings, especially when good adhesion is required, like wall surfaces to be wallpapered.

Remove dirt and dust. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Presto filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu cleaning detergent and rinse carefully with water. Fill cracks and holes with a suitable Presto filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Stir Varma Primer well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply 1-2 times by roller or spray. Finishing paint can be acrylate paint like Harmony, Lumi Interior Paint, Joker or Remontti-Ässä.
Cleaning of tools
Remove excess paint from tools and clean them with water or Tikkurila Tool Cleaner, that is recommended also for removal of hardened paint.
At the earliest after approx. 1 month from finishing. 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.
