How to use MENOS-Priming Paint No. 646

- Hypoallergenic -

No orange oil, or other essential oils added.

Preparation: The surface must be dry (moisture content under 15%), solid, clean, and free of grease, resin and dust.

Application: Stir product thoroughly before use. Apply a sparing primer coat with brush, roller, or spray device at temperatures above 15°C ( 59 °F). Afterwards, repair holes and damaged spots with TAISTO Linseed Oil Putty No. 541, then completely cover surface with ANAVO Grain Filler No. 628. Subsequent treatment with CANTO Natural Oil Paint No. 645 (silky gloss), or with VINDO Natural Oil Paint No. 650 (gloss).


Renovation: Non-intact old coating must be completely removed. Follow instructions for untreated surfaces above. Old, intact, LIVOS coatings can be sanded and treated with only a final coat of Varnish No. 645 or 650, diluted with 5 — 10% SVALOS No. 292.

Important tips: Apply MENOS Priming Paint No. 646 sparingly and distributed well over the surface. Allow spray applications to dry thoroughly. Applying product too thickly can influence drying and result in cracking of subsequently applied coatings.

MENOS Priming Paint No. 646 contains little solvents, so it tend to develop a skin. Before stirring, simply remove the skin and stir well. Transfer unused portion of product into a smaller container for storage. The manufacturer assumes no liability for impaired adhesion and the development of odors that may result from painting over other manufacturers products. Do not paint over silicone objects. Adding 5% by volume of Quartz sand to MENOS Priming Paint No. 646 for the treatment of plaster surfaces prevents the penetration of impurities from the underlying surface (such as nicotine or dried water stains); subsequent treatment of the surface with DUBRON Wall & Ceiling Paint No. 400.
