Application conditions
All surfaces to be painted must be dry, the moisture content of the wood below 20%, the temperature of the air at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%.
Untreated wood surfaces:
Clean the surface from dirt, dust and loose material with steel or scrubbing brush. Wash mould off with Tikkurila Mould Removal or Tehopesu Super Clean according to instructions. A priming coat of Valtti Pohjuste priming oil should be applied in as early construction phase as possible. Protect plants from splashes of Valtti Pohjuste.

Previously with a transparent product treated wood surfaces:
Remove all loose material and greyed flaking layers with a scraper and/or steel brush. Clean the surface and wash with Tikkurila Mould Removal or Tehopesu Super Clean, if needed. If a clear, possibly gloss film remains on the surface, remove it or at least sand it thoroughly. Protect plants from splashes of Valtti Color Extra.
For sealing the window pane and window frame interface, use good quality non-setting glazing compounds, which form a protective skin, in accordance with manufacturer’s 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.
Reserve enough tinted Valtti Color Extra for one uniform surface mixed in one container in order to avoid possible colour differences. Stir thoroughly before use. Apply Valtti Color Extra evenly and without interruption to avoid overlapping. Use brush especially in the first application. If you use spray, the surface should be finalized with a brush. Apply liberally on end-grain. On spray application protect other surfaces from splashes.Apply 2 coats depending on the desired colour intensity. Always use a tinted product on untreated new wood surfaces. Observe the condition of the surface and perform maintenance treatment when needed. The location, cardinal directions and weathering have influence on the maintenance interval.
Cleaning of tools
Clean immediately after use with Tikkurila Tool Cleaner or White Spirit 1050.
Maintenance instructions
Handle the surface with care, ultimate durability and hardness is reached in approx. 4
weeks under normal circumstances. If cleansing is needed, use a soft brush, a mop or a
damp cleaning cloth.
Maintenance treatment
After 1 month from painting a soiled surface can be cleansed with Huoltopesu (1 part of Huoltopesu to 10 parts of water). Clean stains and dirty surfaces with a mix of Huoltopesu and water (1:1). Rinse well and allow to dry.

Valtti wood finishes and wood oils colour card

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.

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.
