Surface must be clean, dry and free from grease, dust and loose paint elements.

Unpainted surfaces:
Wood and wooden like surfaces should be primed before application of enamel with Tikkurila Everal Primer. Exterior surfaces should be primed with Tikkurila Valtti Super Guard (or Valtti Base+).

Previously painted surfaces:
Wood and wooden like surfaces covered with mould, algae etc. should be painted with special agent which will remove microorganisms, then rinse with water and let to dry. Remove all loose, old paint elements and sand the surface, remove dust and degrease. Before the application of enamel surface should be primed with Tikkurila Everal Primer. In case of repainting of the surface in dark colour and in case of application of colours which have a low hiding power, it is recommended to use primer tinted to colour similar to enamel colour. Metal surfaces should be cleaned from rust with metal brush to ST2 clean level according to PN ISO 8501-1. Remove dirt, water-diluted salts, grease and oils with Tikkurila Panssaripesu Cleaning Agent. Rinse with water and let to dry. Old, glossy surfaces should be matt down before painting. Prime unpainted metal surfaces with Tikkurila Everal Corrostop. Zinc surfaces should be sand down and then primed with Tikkurila Everal Metal Primer.

Number of coats
Product consumption, when surface is...


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.
