NOW YOU CAN PAINT YOUR WHOLE HOUSE WITH FALU RÖDFÄRG
Falu Rödfärg Knut&Foder is based on old, tried-and-tested traditional handicraft combined with modern production techniques. Its timeless colours preserve centuries of cultural expression, and its unique qualities allow the creation of new, classic architecture.
The paint has all the qualities of a linseed oil based paint and the beauti- ful appearance of distemper. For example, the paint does not form a sealed membrane but allows wood to breathe naturally, which means moisture is not locked in and cannot cause wood rot.
Falu Rödfärg Knut&Foder is a water-soluble distemper based on linseed oil. The paint has a beautiful matte finish and is primarily intended for use on corners, casings and bargeboards, but is also suitable for other house woodwork. The carefully selected traditional colours, their lustre and matte finish harmonize perfectly to provide a natural, balanced complement to houses painted with Falu Rödfärg Original.
HERE IS WHAT TO DO
Brush new, untreated or factory-primed timber free from dirt and dust. In the case of previously painted surfaces, remove all loose paint and wood (so-called grey wood) using a scraper or steel brush. Then brush away all loose dust. Wash the surfaces with a facade cleaner. It is extremely important that the surfaces be treated with a fungicide if mould spores are present or there is a risk they will occur.
Thoroughly stir the paint. For new, untreated wood, dilute the paint with 10 per cent water for the first coat. Allow to dry for 48 hours. Then apply one coat of undiluted paint. Previously painted surfaces are usually given one coat of undiluted paint. For a lasting finish, it is preferable to apply a second coat to vulnerable surfaces such as those facing south or west. After painting, clean away as much paint as possible from your tools before washing them with detergent and water.
