APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Preparation
Unpainted surfaces:
Remove all dirt and dust. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Presto filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Cleaning Agent (Maalipesu) and rinse carefully with water. Fill holes and cracks with a suitable Presto filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Painting
Stir Luja Universal Primer well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply by brush, roller or spray. Finish the surface with Luja Finishing Paint, Remontti-Ässä or Ässä finishing paint.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water. Use of Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended when cleaning a bit hardened paint from the brush.
Maintenance instructions
Clean the surfaces with neutral (pH 6-8) detergent with soft brush, sponge or cloth at the earliest 1 month after painting. Follow the dilution instructions of the detergent manufacturer. The surface may not remain wet after the cleaning.
Be careful with the painted surfaces during few weeks time, because the paint will achieve its final hardness and durability in normal conditions after 1 month.
If the surfaces must be cleansed soon after painting, cleanse them lightly with a damp cleaning cloth.

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.
