Translucent finish for many years to come!
Beautiful translucent appearance for board and log surfaces.
A pleasure to the eye - for yourself and your friends!
translucent protection for wooden surfaces
Valtti Akvacolor is an environmentally friendly wood finish based on natural oil. It provides a longer maintenance interval thanks to its excellent UV protection. Used on exterior timber and board surfaces.
Is absorbed into wood
Valtti Akvacolor is a waterborne, natural oil-based, wood finish that is easily absorbed into the wood. It is suitable for exterior board and timber surfaces. It protects the wood from weathering by slowing the impacts of humidity and sunlight.
Wide range of applications
Valtti Akvacolor is suitable for both new and previously stained surfaces. In addition to log surfaces, it can also be used to treat thermally modified and impregnated wooden terrace grids, columns, etc.
Being natural oil-based and waterborne, Valtti Akvacolor is pleasant to use without compromising its protective qualities. Valtti Akvacolor is easy and pleasant to brush on, and tools can be cleaned with just soap and water.

Valtti Akvacolor - Full-matt waterborne translucent wood finish
Akvacolor is a full-matt, low build waterborne translucent wood finish. Akvacolor penetrates into timber providing protection from moisture and UV.
Always use a tinted product. The final colour can be seen after the surface has dried.
Use the content of opened can during the same painting season as the product characteristics may vary in half-empty cans.
Clean surfaces from dirt, dust and loose material with steel or scrubbing brush. Wash moldy surfaces with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto Mould Removal or Tehopesu Super Clean according to instructions. Prime surfaces at the earliest possible stage of construction with Valtti Pohjuste or Valtti Plus Base. Protect plants from splashes of priming oil.
Surfaces previously treated with semi-transparent product:
Remove loose material and wood turned grey with a scraper and/or steel brush. Clean the surface and wash with Homeenpoisto Mould Removal or Tehopesu Super Clean, if necessary. Prime bare wood surfaces with Valtti Pohjuste or Valtti Plus Base. If a clear possibly gloss film remains on the wood surface, remove it or at least sand carefully.
Make sure that timber cladding, weatherboarding and timber glazing beads, etc. are adequately fastened with non-corrosive fixings. Valtti Akvacolor is not recommended for use with linseed oil putty. Good quality non-setting glazing compounds which form a protective skin should be used in accordance with manufacturers instructions. Particular attention with regards to preparation should be given to wood such as Oak, Teak, Cedar, Douglas Fir, Mahogany and Idigbo, etc. which contain oil and water soluble tannin which may impair the drying, hardening or adhesion of surface coatings.
Valtti Akvacolor contains VOC max. 130 g/l.
according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008
Safety data sheet
Wooden surfaces are exposed to unrelenting weathering from sunshine and humidity. Semi-transparent wood finishes protect wood surfaces against the weather, retarding the adverse effects of moisture and UV-light, without covering up the beautiful wood grain.
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.
