Product Description

Tikkuria Optiva Primer is a water-based, acrylic primer for use on new and previously painted interior walls and ceilings.

Best Uses

Tikkurila Optiva Primer is suitable for new and old surfaces, plaster, GRP, dry lining board, and previously painted alkyd coatings. This durable wall primer is suitable for use in London Underground premises below and above ground.

Tikkurila Optiva Primer provides a decrease in absorption of the wall surface while unifies the primed surface ready for the subsequent topcoat. This primer also increases coverage of topcoats from Tikkurila Optiva family.


All surfaces intended for coating must be dry, clean and ready for application. Before painting stir the paint thoroughly and if necessary thin with water, up to 5%. Prime unpainted wall and ceiling surfaces with one coat of Tikkurila Optiva Primer. Application of finishing coat should be performed after min. 4 hours at 23°C.
