A gelatinous alkyd primer that provides good coverage and insulation on walls and ceilings.

Product Features

Recommended Uses

Walls and ceilings.


10–12 m²/l.



Application Method

spraying, brush, roller

Application Conditions

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

Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: Clean the surface of any dirt and dust. Previously painted surfaces: Wash the surfaces with Maalipesu detergent and let dry well.


First coat:

Tixomatt does not usually need to be stirred or thinned before use. If needed, e.g. for priming, thin 5–10% with Alkydiohenne 2010. After thinning, allow the paint to stand for approx. 1 hour to restore its gelatinous texture. Apply 1–2 coats by roller, spray or brush. Finish with Siro Himmeä, if needed. The product contains organic solvents with a noticeable odor.

Maintenance Instructions

If needed, after approx. 1 month from painting, at the earliest: Clean the surface with a neutral (pH 6–8) dish washing solution and a soft brush, sponge or cleaning cloth. Clean soiled surfaces using mild alkaline (pH 8–10) detergent solution and a cloth, mop 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 a couple of weeks. If the surfaces need to be cleaned soon after finishing, clean them lightly with a soft brush or damp cleaning cloth.


(cat A/g) 350g/l (2010) Tixomatt contains max. 350 g/l of VOC.

Binds and insulates

Tixomatt is binding and insulating primer for plaster, filled, chipboard, wood fiberboard, and wooden surfaces indoors. It is especially suitable for spray plaster ceilings, as it prevents bleeding.
