Protect from frost! Close the can carefully for the next time it is used. Once opened, a can cannot be stored for a long period of time. Use the content of opened can during the same painting season as the product characteristics may vary in half-empty cans.

Application conditions
The surface to be treated must be dry and the moisture content of the wood below 20%. The temperature of the air, surface and wood finish must be at least +5°C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80% during painting and drying. The working properties are at their best at a calm, cloudy dry weather with temperature +10 - +20°C.
Untreated surface:
Clean the surface 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 primer.

Surface treated previously with translucent wood finish:
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 glossy film remains on the wood surface, roughen the surface by sanding.
Reserve enough tinted Valtti Plus Kesto for one uniform surface, mixed in one can, to avoid possible color differences. Stir thoroughly before use and from time to time during use.
Apply Valtti Plus Kesto evenly and continuosly along the length of a log or few boards to avoid overlapping. The product dries quickly. Apply the product enough to form a clear layer. Apply liberally on the end grain.
Apply two coats on new primed surfaces and in maintenance painting 1-2 coats depending on the condition of the old surface and earlier treatment. Surfaces treated earlier with a thin product absorbed into the wood require normally two coats. Check the condition of the treated surface and make maintenance treatment when necessary, as soon as the product starts to wear off from the surface. The maintenance interval is affected by the location and direction of the object as well as weather conditions.

Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with soap (or similar detergent) and rinse with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended for removal of hardeded finish.
Maintenance instructions
Handle the painted surface with care as the product achieves its final hardness and durability in normal conditions in about four weeks.
If cleansing is needed soon after treatment, use a soft brush, a mop or a damp cleaning cloth. Earliest after one 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 stronger solution of Huoltopesu and water (1:1). Rinse well and allow to dry.
