Acrylic dispersion.


Solids content


Base A – approx. 56% (depend on colour), Base C – approx. 54% (depend on colour)




Base A – approx. 1,34 g/cm3, Base C – approx. 1,28 g/cm3 (depend on colour)



Up to 16 m²/l max. with one coat. The coverage depends to a large degree on such factors as absorbability, substrate texture, application method and colour.


Drying time

At temperature +23°C, relative air humidity 50% the paint needs approx. 1 hours to dry. The interval between application of subsequent coats must be at least 4 hours. In lower temperatures and higher humidity the time between the application of next coat  might be longer.


Resistant to wet scrubbing

Highest – 1st class (according to norm: PN-EN 13300:2002). (PN-EN ISO 11998:2007P). In case of dirt on the surface for cleaning might be used water with delicate cleaning detergent.

Resistance to disinfectant agents

Paint durable to cleaning with disinfectant agents used in hospitals. List of such products available on customer request. 


Resistance to radiation

Durability test for irradiation of the surface with UVC germicide  lamps – the look of the surface and the shade didn’t change after 8 hrs. of irradiation.


Surface regeneration

Imperfections of the surface, which was made during using of the surface can be eliminated after gently wiping them with dry or wet cloth.







Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: New plaster and concrete substrates can be painted after 4 weeks of seasoning. Clean these surfaces from dust and dirt, smooth out irregularities and losses with putty. Gypsum boards, cardboards and putty may be painted after they are fully dry. In case when unevenness of the surface is considerable, the wall should be even with leveling mortar and afterwards apply on the whole surface smooth putty. In case of small unevenness you may apply smooth putty  at once. The use of above mentioned mortars and putty should be done according to data sheets of these products. Machine plaster with visible glossy sinter surface should be sanded and clean from dust. Then apply one coat of Tikkurila OPTIVA PRIMER, as finishing coat apply two coats of Tikkurila OPTIVA CERAMIC SUPER MATT [3] paint.



Previously painted surfaces:  Wash the surface before coating and remove grease and dirt and loose and flaking fragments of old coat. Sand glossy surfaces and smooth out irregularities and losses with putty. Paint with gloss grade: satin, semi-matt, semi-gloss and gloss should be sanded on the whole surface before final dusting. For sanding use sanding paper with grain 150 - 200. Prime the whole of substrate with Tikkurila OPTIVA PRIMER. Paint twice with the Tikkurila OPTIVA CERAMIC SUPER MATT [3] paint.






Surfaces painted with glue or lime paint: Remove thoroughly the lime or glue paint. Clean the surfaces from dust and dirt, smooth out irregularities and losses with putty. Then apply one coat of Tikkurila OPTIVA PRIMER, as finishing coat apply twice the Tikkurila OPTIVA CERAMIC SUPER MATT [3] paint. In case of loose substrate prime with impregnate Tikkurila SUPRABILIT.  


Notice: It is recommended to check if the used putty is strong and stable surface – if after delicate hand wipe the putty is falling or leave the dust on hand then it means that the surface is loose and it has to be primed with Tikkurila Tikkurila SUPRABILIT impregnant.



Application method

Brush, roller, spray (nozzle: 415, pressure: 150 bar).



If necessary thin up to 5% with water.


Application conditions

All surfaces intended for coating must be dry, air temperature may not be lower than +5°C and not higher then +25OC, relative air humidity below 80%. 



Before application thin sufficient amount of paint from one production batch to avoid possible colour difference. Before painting stir the paint thoroughly. Depending on substrate porosity apply 2 coats of Tikkurila OPTIVA CERAMIC SUPER MATT [3] with brush, roller or spray. For colours of particularly weak hiding power (marked within the tinting system) it may be necessary to apply additional coats. In case of applying colours marked in tinting system as weakly hiding (LH) and intensive colours from C base, it is recommended to use priming paint Tikkurila OPTIVA PRIMER tinted to a colour close to the colour of finishing paint. The painting tape should be removed immediately after painting, before the paint will dry. It is recommended to use ANZA painting tools.
