Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5 ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Unpainted surface:
Remove dirt and dust from the unpainted surfaces. If necessary, fill holes and cracks with suitable Tikkurila Presto filler. Sand the filler and remove sanding dust. Prime with Luja Universal Primer or Varma Primer.
Previously painted surface:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Cleaning Agent (Maalipesu) according to instructions of use and let it dry. Remove loose, flaking paint with a scraper. Sand hard, glossy surfaces to a matt finish and remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with a suitable Tikkurila Presto filler. Sand the filler and remove sanding dust. Prime with Ykköspohja, Luja Universal Primer or Varma Primer, if necessary.
Stir Luja finishing paint well before use. Apply two finishing coats by brush, roller or spray.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water. Use of Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended to be used to remove a bit harden paint from the brush.
Maintenance instructions
Cleanse the surfaces with neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent using soft brush, sponge or cloth at the earliest 1 month after painting. Very dirty surfaces can be cleansed with lightly alkaline (pH 8 -10) detergent using e.g. a cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surfaces carefully after cleaning. Follow the dilution instructions of the detergent manufacturer.
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 soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.
Maintenance treatment
Surfaces painted with Luja Finishing paint can be repainted with similar water-borne paint. See Preparation.

Product consumption, when surface is...


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.
