Product Features

For interior painting of concrete, plaster, filler-treated, plasterboard, chipboard and wood fiberboard surfaces according to instructions. Also suitable for repainting previously painted surfaces.

Recommended Uses

Ceiling and wall surfaces in dry interior spaces.


Non-absorbent surfaces: 9–12 m²/l. Absorbent surfaces: 6–9 m²/l.



Application Conditions

The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature at least +5°C and the relative humidity of the air below 80%.

Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: Clean the surfaces by removing any dirt and dust. If necessary, level the surfaces with a suitable Tikkurila Presto filler and sand the dried surface. Remove the sanding dust. Prime with LM 3. Previously painted surfaces: Wash previously painted surfaces with diluted Maalipesu cleaning agent. Sand the painted surfaces non-glossy. Remove the sanding dust. Fill any cracks and holes with a suitable Presto filler and sand the dried surface. Remove the sanding dust. If needed, prime with LM 3.


First coat:

Stir LM 20 well before use and thin with water, if necessary. Apply 1–2 coats by roller, brush or spray.

Maintenance Painting:

Surfaces painted with LM 20 can be maintenance painted with the same or similar water-borne paint.

Cleaning of tools

Remove excess paint from tools and wash with water. Tikkurila Pensselipesu is recommended for paint that has hardened to a certain extent.

Maintenance Instructions

If needed, approx. one month after surface treatment at the earliest. Clean the surfaces with a neutral (pH 6–8) cleaning solution and e.g. a sponge or cleaning cloth. Clean very dirty surfaces with a mild alkaline (pH 8–10) cleaning solution and e.g. a cleaning cloth, mop or sponge. After washing, rinse the surface thoroughly. Follow the dilution instructions given by the detergent manufacturer when mixing the cleaning solution. The product achieves its final hardness and durability after one month under normal conditions, and therefore the surfaces must be handled with care during this time. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, clean them lightly with a damp cleaning cloth or mop.


(cat A/a) max. 30g/l (2010). LM 20 contains VOC max. 30g/l.
