Surface preparation

Take out the fuzzy or gray wood surface mechanically. Untreated surface: Clean the untreated wood surface of any dirt, mold or loose material. Wash the previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu or Homeenpoisto, if necessary. Remove loose resin from knots. Prime the bare wood surfaces with Valtti Plus Base or Valtti Primer. A surface previously lacquered or stained: Use a wire brush to remove any loose material from a previously treated surface. Wash the previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu or Homeenpoisto, if necessary. Sand any glossy surfaces non-glossy and round any sharp edges. Remove the sanding dust. Interior wooden parts: Apply Spakkeli Wood Putty to holes and dents and sand the treated surfaces. Prime the bare wood surfaces with Valtti Plus Base or Valtti Primer. Apply Presto Window Putty to make the glazing. Note! Unica Akva Lacquer cannot be appliedon top of silicone putty or on a surface stained with silicone.


Painting

First coat:

Stir the Unica Akva Varnish paint thoroughly down to the bottom before use. Spread 1-2 times with a brush, twice for new surfaces. On large surfaces, it is recommended to first apply the paint with a roller and then level the coat with a brush. Don’t let the working edge dry out. Unica Akva Varnish can be diluted by water, max 5 %, for brushing (if necessary). The lacquer dries quickly, so the work is best done in strips. We recommend the use of synthetic brushes with multi-branched bristles. Treat the end grains of wood with particular care.


Maintenance Painting:

Unica Akva Lacquer can be maintenance treated with Unica Akva Lacquer. See Preparation.


Maintenance Instructions

The product achieves its final hardness and durability at the earliest after 2 weeks under normal conditions, 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 soft brush, damp cleaning cloth or mop. At the earliest after 2 weeks from finishing the surfaces can be cleaned with Talon Huoltopesu (1 part Talon Huoltopesu in 10 parts of water). Very dirty surfaces and stains can be cleaned with a stronger Huoltopesu solution (1:1). Rinse the surfaces and allow to dry.


For new and old surfaces

Unica Akva withstand harsh conditions without cracking does or yellowing. In addition to first paint applications, it is an excellent maintenance paint for industrially painted or lacquered wooden doors and windows.
