Redecorating paint

  • Water-borne

TELA 20 is a semi-matt, water-borne, dispersion paint containing acrylate for interior use.

Especially suited for use on new and previously painted surfaces of concrete, plaster, stopper, brick and building boards. Suitable for walls and ceilings where good washability and abrasion resistance is required. Not suitable for doors, windows or fixtures.

Surface preparation

Clean new surfaces from dust and dirt. Wash previously painted surfaces with RENSA SUPER paint cleaner. Matt down hard or gloss surfaces by sanding and thereafter remove the dust. For smoothing of irregularities in the surface choose a suitable filler from the SILORA series. The dried filler is sanded down and the dust removed.


Steel surfaces are primed with FERREX AQUA Anticorrosive paint. Galvanized surfaces are painted straight on with TELA 20. Other surfaces are painted straight on with TELA 20 Redecorating Paint or primed with TELA 3 Primer. Before use stir the paint thoroughly. The paint is thinned with water when needed. Apply once or twice by brush, roller or spray.

Application conditions

The surface to be painted has to be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %. Good ventilation during the application and drying period quickens the drying process.


The final forming of the paint film takes abt. 4 weeks under normal circumstances and after that the ultimate durability and hardness is reached. Before this the painted surface must be treated with care. The painted surface can be cleaned by light wiping. Use a damp cleaning cloth, soft sponge or similar for cleaning. Avoid coarse brushing or heavy abrasion.
