Stir Luja finishing paint well before use. Apply two finishing coats by brush, roller or spray.

Cleaning of tools

Clean tools with water. Use of Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Brush Cleaner) is recommended to be used to remove a bit harden paint from the brush.

Maintenance instructions

Cleanse the surfaces with neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent using soft brush, sponge or cloth at the earliest 1 month after painting. Very dirty surfaces can be cleansed with lightly alkaline (pH 8 -10) detergent using e.g. a cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surfaces carefully after cleaning. Follow the dilution instructions of the detergent manufacturer.
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 lightly with a soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.

Maintenance treatment

Surfaces painted with Luja Finishing paint can be repainted with similar water-borne paint. See Preparation.
