WOCA Wood Lye Details

WOCA Wood Lye is for priming unfinished or newly sanded interior woodwork like floors, stairs, furniture and panels. WOCA Wood Lye prevents the wood from yellowing and enhances the natural wood grain. Wood Lye may be used on all types of wood. It creates a colored wash effect, depending on the chosen color.

How To Apply WOCA Wood Lye

Woca Wood Lye application instructions
WOCA Wood Lye Application Instructions
  1. The unfinished woodwork must be well sanded, clean and dry before application of lye. Clean with a solution of 1/4 cup Wood Cleaner per gallon of water if the wood surface is dirty and
    allow to dry . Shake the lye container well and pour the lye into a plastic bucket and stir regularly during application to get a uniform finish.
  2. Apply the lye undiluted with a nylon brush in an even coat on the floor lengthwise. Use at least 1 liter of lye per 100 sq. ft.
  3. Rinse work tools clean with water.
  4. When woodwork is dry, remove any visible lime pigments from surface. Possibly clean with Wood Cleaner or loosen with green or yellow pad under floor machine and subsequently vacuum clean the floor.
On vertically mounted woodwork, apply from top to bottom. Rinse work tools clean in water.
A lye primed wood floor may be finished after a drying time of approx. 8 hours at 68° F (the wood must be completely dry) with Woca Master Oil or Color Oil.
