Otex Akva Adhesion Primer

Waterborne quick drying adhesion primer

Otex Akva is a quick drying waterborne high opacity adhesion primer for use on multiple substrates. Once dry Otex Akva provides a solid foundation for subsequent coats of solvent and water-based products.


Suitable for priming and undercoating both new and

previously painted surfaces. Otex Akva adheres well to

surfaces requiring special adhesion like glass, tiles, glass fiber,

melamine, PVC-plastic, aluminium, zinc coated sheet metal

and surfaces coated with alkyd and acid-curing paint.

Highly versatile Otex Akva can be applied to a vast range of previously painted and new substrates.

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +8 C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %. Shallow temperature (approx. +15 °C) and fairly high humidity (50-70% RH) extend the working time of the paint and facilitate the work.
Preparation
Remove dirt and dust from the surface. Treat knots on bare wood surfaces with Knotting Lacquer. Wash surfaces requiring special adhesion with Maalipesu cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Sand the surface matt. Remove sanding dust.

Previously painted surface:
Wash the surface with Maalipesu cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Sand the surface matt. Remove sanding dust.
Painting
Stir Otex Akva carefully before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply with brush, roller, paint pad or spray. On large surfaces it is best to apply the paint first with e.g. a furniture paint roller and level with a brush. We recommend to use synthetic brushes with multi-branched bristles. The surface can be finished after 5 hours with Unica Akva, Helmi finishing paint or Feelings Furniture Paint.
Cleaning of tools
Remove excess paint from tools. Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of slightly hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions
Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting, if needed: The surfaces are cleaned with a neutral (pH 6-8) dish washing solution and soft brush, sponge or cleaning cloth. Clean very dirty surfaces with weakly alkaline (pH 8-10) detergent using e.g. cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully.
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 slightly with a soft brush or 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.
