Application Method


Application Conditions

The surface to be treated must be dry. This means that the moisture content of the wood is below 20%. During painting and drying, the temperature of the air must be at least +5°C and the relative humidity below 80%

Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: Clean surfaces affected by mold and dirt with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto solution . Prime the surface at the earliest possible stage of construction with Tikkurila priming oil. Remove loose resin from knots. Previously painted surfaces: Use a scraper to remove any loose material and gray wood from the surface and brush the surface clean with a wire brush. Wash any dirty and moldy surfaces with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto according to instructions. Treat any bare wood surfaces with Tikkurila priming oil.


First coat:

First application: Stir Öljypohja well and apply on bare wood surfaces once by brush. Treat the end grains of the wood with particular care. Finishing painting is recommended to be performed as soon as possible after priming; however, after 6–10 months at the latest. Wood contains resin and other staining extracts, particularly around knots, which can cause discoloration or bleeding in the painted surface due to variations in temperature and humidity.

Prevents water uptake

Painting a wooden surface with Öljypohja primer, forms a water-repellent surface that prevents direct rainwater from penetrating the wood.

Good adhesion

This classic primer creates good adhesion to new factory-primed and old bare wood surfaces before painting with house paints. Öljypohja is also suitable for painting surfaces previously treated with oil paint.

Good result with top coat

Öljypohja primer forms a protective base layer on the wood and provides an ideal base for the top coat. The finishing paint is easy to apply on the primed surface. The use of the primer under top coat also reduces the discoloration caused by wood extractants.
