WOCA Wood Lye is used for lye priming of unfinished or newly sanded interior woodwork i.e. wood floors, wood stairs, wood furniture, and wood panels. The priming prevents the wood from yellowing and enhances the wood grain creating a white wash effect. Wood Lye may be used on all types of wood species. Use Wood Lye in combination with WOCA Master Oil or Color Oil.
877 Floor Guy has a wide selection of Wood Lye and Pre-Treatments available including: white, grey, antique, softwood and WOCA Panel White
. WOCA Panel White is a pretreatment for yellowed wood walls and ceiling panels. It reduces the look of discolored wood and knots.
Lye can be very dangerous, so it's imperative that you wear goggles and gloves while working with the wood lye pre-treatment. It's designed to use on unfinished wood only.
Application of Wood Lye
Make sure the wood is sanded, clean and dry prior to working with the lye. Shake the bottle and pour the WOCA Wood Lye into a plastic bucket, stirring regularly.
Using a nylon brush or roller, spread the lye (undiluted) on the floor lengthwise in an even coat. If you're working on woodwork that is vertical, then spread the lye from top to bottom.
Rinse any tools used with water. Once the wood has dried, check the floor for lye residue and remove using Wood Cleaner or use a green or yellow pad under a floor machine to loosen. Vacuum when finished.
With the lye treatment dry, proceed to finish the floor with WOCA Oil, Wood Soap or Lacquer.Coverage: 100sf/liter
