Clean shine for the sauna

Tintable Supi Arctic can give your sauna the silky grey shade of old deadwood or the glistening black of a charred log, straight from nature. You can choose from 10 natural pearly colours in the Arctic colour card.

Repels moisture and water

Supi Arctic forms a dirt- and water-repellent, luxurious and subtly glittering surface for the walls and ceilings in your sauna rooms. Supi sauna products are in the best M1 building material emission class. This means that no harmful substances evaporate from them into the indoor air.

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least + 5ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Preparation
New clean wood surfaces:
Remove dirt and dust. Moisten lightly with water spray, let dry and sand loose wood fiber off. Remove sanding dust.
Old dirty and previously with e.g. Supi Sauna Finish treated wood surfaces:
Wash down with Supi Saunapesu Cleaning Agent according to instructions, rinse thoroughly and let dry. Sand and dust off.
Waxing
Stir Supi Arctic properly, from time to time also during usage. Treat steam room walls once with tinted Supi Arctic. Thin with water if necessary. You can also treat the steam room walls twice, thinned with water up to 50 %. This way the brush marks will be less noticeable. Treat washing and dressing room surfaces first with Supi Arctic thinned with 20 % of water, then with unthinned product. Make a test application in a inconspicuous spot to ensure that the colour is correct. When the product is thinned the colour becomes a little lighter and more transparent than in the colour card. The properties of the wood and previous treatments incluence the final colour. Treat entire small surfaces without interruptions and large panel surfaces 1-2 panels at a time in order to achieve a uniform colour. You get a matching colour to benches - without the pearl effect - by tinting Supi Sauna wax according to the Valtti Arctic colour card. Pre-heat and ventilate the sauna thoroughly before use.
Cleaning of tools
Clean the tools with soap and water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of hardened sauna finish.
Maintenance instructions
Cleaning earliest about 1 month after applicaton, if necessary:

Clean the surface with Supi Saunapesu Cleaning Agent (1-2 dl of cleaning agent into 5 litres of water).

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.
