Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Unpainted surfaces:
Remove dirt and dust from the surfaces. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Tikkurila Presto or Prestonit filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust. Prime with Nova 2 or Ykköspohja.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down surfaces with diluted Maalipesu cleaning detergent and rinse carefully with water. Sand hard and glossy surfaces matt and remove sanding dust. Fill cracks and holes with a suitable Tikkurila Presto or Prestonit filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust. Prime with Nova 2 or Ykköspohja, if needed.
Stir Nova 20 well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply 1-2 times with a roller, spray or brush.
Cleaning of tools
Remove the excess paint from tools before cleaning with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu (Tool Cleaner) is recommended to be used for cleaning hardened paint.
Maintenance instructions
Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting, if needed.
Surfaces are cleaned with a damp cleaning tool moistened in a neutral (pH 6-8) washing solution. Very dirty surfaces are cleaned with a weakly alkaline (pH8-10) washing solution. The surface may not remain wet after cleaning. Follow the dilution instructions given by 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 gently with a damp cleaning cloth.
Maintenance treatment
Surfaces painted with Nova 20 can be recoated with same type of water-borne paint. See preparation.
