How Do I Paint Interior Ash?

Ash is a light hardwood used extensively in joinery and furniture manufacturing

  • Clean down as required using Tikkurila Cleaning agent or similar to remove any grease oil or other contamination. It is advised to apply a stain blocking primer to untreated ash prior to top coating. 
  • If previously painted, remove any loose, flaking paint with a scraper and feather off any edges. 
  • Sand hard, glossy and industrially painted surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks and sand the filled parts.

The temperature of the air and the surface to be painted must be at least +8°C, the relative humidity of the air below 80%.
