WOCA Wood Lye Tester DetailsWOCA Wood Lye Tester is for the testing of WOCA Wood Lye before completing your project. Woca Wood lye is used for lye priming of unfinished or newly sanded interior woodwork i.e. floor, stairs, furniture and panels. The priming prevents the wood from yellowing and enhances the wood grain creating a colored wash effect, depending on the chosen color. Wood Lye may be used on all types of wood. Results vary.
- 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.
- 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.
On vertically mounted woodwork, apply from top to bottom. Rinse work tools clean in water.
A lye primed wood floor may 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.
