Customer Questions
I know it says interior primer for wood etc..does this mean it's suitable for priming bathroom doors..? I always thought it would need a specialised product for that due to the high level of humidity. I know many brands dulux has a primer and undercoat for wood..valspar the same..any basic primer says wood..but I want one specifically for bathroom areas. Or is this fine for that?
Yes, the Tikkurila Otex Akva is suitable for this surface.
Can this primer be used on a previously painted oil based gloss surface?
Yes, The Tikkurila Otex Akva can be applied to this surface
