Clean untreated wood surface from dirt, mould and loose particles. Wash surfaces with Maalipesu Cleaning Agent or with Homeenpoisto Mould Removal, if necessary. Remove loose resin from wood knots and seal knots on interior surfaces with Oksalakka knotting lacquer. Prime bare exterior wood surfaces with Valtti Akvabase or Valtti Base.To prevent possible seepage from bare wood surface priming of exterior sufaces with Öljypohja and interior surfaces with Jehu is recommended.
Wash metal surfaces with Maalipesu or Panssaripesu Roof Cleaning Agent. Remove possible rust. Prime exterior metal surfaces with Rostex Super Akva or Rostex Super Metal Primer and interior metal surfaces with Rostex Super Akva or Otex.
NB! If Otex is used as a primer, final adhesion to primer is achieved after
2 weeks from finishing. During this time avoid e.g. attaching masking tape on the painted surface.
Previously painted surface:
Remove loose paint and putty from previously painted surface. Wash wood surfaces with Maalipesu or Homeenpoisto, if necessary, metal surfaces with Maalipesu or Panssaripesu. Sand glossy surfaces matt and round sharp corners. Remove sanding dust.
Interior wooden surfaces: fill holes and cracks with Presto Furniture Filler or Rapid Filler and sand the filled areas.
Treat exterior bare wood surfaces with Valtti Akvabase or Valtti Base.
Prime worn out exterior wood surfaces with Öljypohja or Ultra Primer. Priming is recommended for bare wood surfaces to reduce possible seepage through the paint film. Prime bare metal surfaces with Rostex Super Akva or Rostex Super. Prime previously industrially painted metal surfaces with Rostex Super. Apply Presto Window Putty for window frames after priming. Note! Unica Akva can't be applied on top of silicone putties or on surfaces contaminaned with silicone.
4 weeks 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, damp cleaning cloth or mop.
At the earliest after approx. 1 month from finishing the surfaces can be cleaned with Huoltopesu (1 part Huoltopesu in 10 parts of water). Very dirty surfaces and stains can be cleaned with a stronger Huoltopesu solution (1:1). After washing rinse and let dry.

Safety data sheet
InstructionsConsumption 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.
