APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry and at least 4 weeks old, with concrete relative humidity less than 97%. During application and drying, the air, surface and paint temperature must be at least + 10 º C, and relative air humidity less than 80 %.
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.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).
Maintenance instructions
The painted surface reaches its ultimate abrasion and chemical resistance approx. 2 weeks from the surface treatment, during that time avoid cleanup. Clean the surface with a brush, a mop or a rag. Clean soiled surfaces with cleaning supplies using neutral (pH 6-8) detergent.

Instructions

Consumption varies depending on the surface to be treated and its condition. Absorption is affected e.g. by the surface roughness, moisture content level of timber and porosity. For example, log surface that has been untreated for a long time takes a lot more wood finish than a new surface to be treated.

When calculating the consumption, note that the consumption for round logs is 1.5 times higher than normal. Please also note the corner joints in the surface area.

Rounding up

As the filling rate is usually 90% (space for tinting), it is good to round up the liter amounts and reserve enough of the product so that the work is not interrupted unnecessarily, and colour will be even.
