Application conditions
The surface to be treated must be dry, i.e. the moisture content of the wood should be below 20 %. During painting and drying, the temperature of the air, surface and wood finish has to be at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Untreated wood surfaces:
Remove dirt, dust and loose material from untreated surfaces with steel or scrubbing-brush. Wash down surfaces affected by mould with Valtti Mould Removal (Homeenpoisto) solution or Tikkurila Tehopesu (Power Cleaner) according to directions for use. Prime surfaces as soon as possible with Valtti Base priming oil. Protect plants from splashes of Valtti Color and Valtti Base.

Surfaces treated previously with wood preservative or wood finish:
Remove loose material from previously treated surfaces with scraper or steel brush. Clean the surface and wash down with Valtti Mould Removal (Homeenpoisto) solution or Tikkurila Tehopesu (Power Cleaner), if necessary. Glossy film remaining on the surface of the wood should be removed or at least sanded down. Protect plants from splashes of Valtti Color.
Surface treatment
Make sure you have enough tinted Valtti Color for one uniform surface, mixed into one canister to avoid possible colour differences. Stir Valtti Color thoroughly before use and during painting. Apply Valtti Color evenly by brush along the whole length of a log or couple of boards to avoid overlapping. Treat end-grain carefully. Apply 2 coats, thin coats on planed and log surfaces. Always use tinted product to protect new surfaces.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with White Spirit 1050 or Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner).
Maintenance instructions

weeks under normal circumstances. If cleansing is needed soon after finishing, use a soft brush, damp cleaning cloth or a mop.

Maintenance treatment
Observe the condition of the finished surface and perform maintenance painting, if necessary. Factors affecting maintenance intervals include the location, compass orientation and weather conditions.
