Application Details:
Application method: Brush, sponge or spray.
Application conditions: The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +8°C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80%.  Lower temperature (approx. +15°C) and higher humidity (50-70 % RH) will make the open-time of the paint longer and the work easier.
Preparation: Remove all dirt and dust carefully to obtain good adhesion. Wash down previously painted or lacquered surfaces with a suitable cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Let dry. Remove loose, flaking paint or lacquer with a scraper and sand the whole surface. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with filler and sand the filled parts. Remove sanding dust.

Stir Helmi Primer well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply by brush, roller, paint pad, or spray.  Apply on large surfaces with e.g. a furniture paint roller and then level with a brush. Multi-branched synthetic brushes are best suited for the work.

Prime absorbent surfaces first with primer thinned with 5-10 % water, and sand.

After 2 hours, paint the surface with unthinned primer. Finishing can be done after 5 hours with Helmi Furniture Paint.

Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity

Maintenance instructions

Cleaning earliest approx. 1 month after painting. The surfaces are cleaned with a soft brush, damp cleaning cloth or sponge and neutral (pH 6-8) dish washing solution. Very dirty surfaces can be cleaned with a slightly alkaline (pH 8-10) washing detergent using e.g. a cleaning cloth or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully.

The product achieves its final hardness and durability after one month under normal conditions, therefore the surfaces must be handled with care during initial couple of weeks. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, clean them lightly with a soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.
