Light into dark spaces

Interior spaces often seem to lack sufficient light. Thanks to a new kind of pigment composition, Lumi is visibly whiter than ordinary interior wall paints. The brilliant white of Lumi interior paint scatters light more than other traditional paints, on all wavelengths of the visible spectrum.

Fresh colours

Lumi imparts spaciousness and freshness to a room. It can also warm, illuminate, and give energy. The sophisticated white surface of Lumi interior paint is perfect as such, if you want your walls to be pure white. The Lumi colour card’s tinted whites create different moods for a room, like the play of light and shadow on a snowdrift.

Application conditions
The surface to be treated must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5oC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %
Preparation
New surfaces:
Remove dirt and dust from the unpainted surfaces. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Presto filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust. Prime with e.g. Luja Universal Primer.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu cleaning detergent and rinse carefully with water. Sand hard and glossy surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust.

Maintenance instructions
Cleaning earliest abt. 1 month after application of the finish, if needed.

The surfaces are cleaned with a dry brush or dust towel. Dirty surfaces are cleaned with a well squeezed damp, soft sponge or cleaning cloth and neutral (pH 6 – 8) washing detergent. Dilution instructions given by the detergent producer have to be followed by preparing the washing dilution. The surface must be dried after the cleaning.

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 dry or damp cleaning cloth.

Instructions

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.
