• Water-borne

TELA 3 is a full-matt, water-borne dispersion paint containing acrylate for interior painting.

The paint is suitable for new and previously painted surfaces of wood, concrete, plaster, stopper, brick and building boards whenever a full-matt surface is required. As a primer the paint is well overcoatable with dispersion paints of different gloss.

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. Remove all of the old paint from the surfaces which have been painted with glue paint or lime wash. Spray filler ceilings, which are not waterproof, are recommended to be primed with solvent borne primer e.g. FUTURA 3 Adhesion primer. 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.


To prevent the knots bleeding on wood the surfaces are primed with FUTURA 3 Adhesion primer. Steel surfaces are primed with FERREX AQUA Anticorrosive paint. Galvanized surfaces are painted straight on with TELA 3. Other surfaces are painted straight on with TELA 3. 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.
