Muuri Paint for fireplaces and firewalls
Inorganic silicate paint for interior use with excellent heat-resistance
lime, lime cement, cement plaster, sandlime brick and brick surfaces as well as mineral board
surfaces indoors. Suitable also for surfaces previously painted
with lime, lime cement, cement and
silicate paints. See instructions.
Firewalls, fireplaces and similar interior wall surfaces, where surface temperature can rise higher than normal.

after 12 hours
Water vapour resistance (EN ISO 7783)
< 0.14 m.
Tinted product 180°C and untinted product 300°C dry heat.
Protect from frost. Store in a dry and cool place protected from sunlight. Keep the can tightly closed until next use. Tinted product or opened can does not withstand longterm storage.
The surface to be painted must be clean, dry and solid and the temperature of the air and surface at least +10 °C and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
New concrete, screed and plastered surface must be sufficiently dried and hardened before finishing treatment.
Clean unpainted surfaces from dirt, dust and other impurities.
Previously painted surfaces:
Clean surfaces from dirt, dust and other impurities. If necessary, clean with Tikkurila Maalipesu Cleaning agent according to instructions. Remove flaking and poorly attached or powdery paint layers.
Patch cracks, holes and dents so that they are in the same level with the surrounding surface. Use an appropriate dry filler on concrete surfaces and lime plaster or lime cement plaster on plaster surfaces. If necessary, patch paint smoothed areas with Muuri Fireplace paint.
Apply one priming coat of Muuri Fireplace paint. The product can be
thinned with water up to 10%, if necessary. After the primer has set for at
least 12 hours, finishing coat will be
Cover surfaces that will not be treated, such as windows, natural stone
or clinker-tiled surfaces and metal surfaces. Remove any paint spatter
immediately with water.
The variable porous structure of the surface to be painted and moisture
and temperature variations during paint application and drying may cause
diversity of color.
It is recommended to wait for at least two weeks before the treated
surfaces are taken into use so that the product can reach the heat durability
requirements set for it.
Mechanical strain may cause visible marks on the painted surface. This
is a typical product feature of matt paints; however, it does not affect the
technical functionality of the product.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of hardened paint.
If necessary, clean the surfaces with a dry brush, mop or dust cloth after a month of the surface treatment at the earliest.
Surfaces painted with Muuri paint can be maintenance painted with the same product.
