The substrate has to be sufficiently solid, dry and hard before the finishing treatment. Unpainted surfaces: Clean the unpainted surfaces of any dirt, dust and salt. Surfaces with mold, moss etc. are cleaned with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto in accordance with the instructions. Smooth, glassy concrete surfaces must always be treated mechanically to create an appropriate surface profile and remove any laitance.

Previously painted surface: Surfaces are cleaned by removing any dirt, dust or salt. Surfaces with mold, moss etc. are cleaned with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto in accordance with the instructions. Remove any flaking and poorly adhering paint coats. Select the removal method according to the strength of the substrate and paint type (e.g. wire brushing, pressure washing with hot water or wet sand-blasting). Render the surfaces with Yki Värilaasti according to instructions, as necessary.

Maintenance Instructions

Dirty surfaces painted with Yki Sokkelimaali can be carefully washed with a pressure washer without any detergent no earlier than one month after painting. The washing may leave permanent marks on the surface, so the area to be washed should be designed inconspicuously following the lines of the structure. It is recommended to remove any loose dirt dry with a soft brush, avoiding abrasion. For removing algae and mold, use Tikkurila Homeenpoisto and rinse thoroughly according to instructions. NOTE: The surface must be treated again always after mold removal.

Good weather resistance

Durable paint Yki Sokkelimaali protects socles from the weather conditions, slowing down the impacts of water. The painted surface retains a good protective coating in case of moisture and heat. The impermeable surface of the paint keeps water out of the structure while allowing it to breathe water vapor out.
