Swedish red paint

  • Water-borne

Traditional old-fashioned Swedish red ochre paint. The paint provides a surface that breathes and will protect the wood in a natural way. Finish: full-matt.

To be used on unpainted sawed plank surfaces, unplaned timber surfaces and also on surfaces previously painted with Swedish red paint, e.g. on granaries, outbuildings etc. The paint is not suitable on planed surfaces or on surfaces that have been painted with other types of paints.

Surface preparation

Untreated sawed plank and rough log surface: Remove dust and dirt and also all loose wood fibres. Wash mildewed surfaces with RENSA FACADE facade cleaner. Prime metal parts with FERREX AQUA anticorrosive paint. Surfaces previously painted with red ochre paint: Remove with steel brush all loose paint from the surface. Coat rusting metal parts with FERREX AQUA anticorrosive paint.


Apply by a broad brush. First prime with TRANEMO PUNAMULTAMAALI that has been diluted 10 - 20 % with water. Apply the paint in layers as thin as possible until good coverage has been achieved. New surfaces are to be painted twice, surfaces previously painted with red ochre paint are to be painted once or twice. TRANEMO PUNAMULTAMAALI contains iron oxide pigment that is a natural pigment. Therefore little variations of colour might occur. Combine the different paint batches into a same vessel or use the natural lines e.g. corners. NOTE! TRANEMO PUNAMULTAMAALI contains iron sulphate that might dissolve from the painted surface and cause rust stains into light plastered or concrete socles. It might also yellow light wood surfaces.

Application conditions

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 %. The best weather for application is cloudy but dry.
