How to do...
Master Lye does not contain any white pigments.
1. The unfinished woodwork must be well sanded,
clean and dry before application of lye. Clean with
125 ml Wood Cleaner mixed with 5l water.
Shake the container well and pour the lye into a plastic bucket and stir regularly during application to get a uniform finish. Stir the lye regularly during the work.
2. Apply an even coat of the lye with a nylon brush lengthwise the wood grain. Use at least 1 l of lye per 10 m2. On vertical woodwork, apply the lye from top to bottom. Tools may be cleaned in water.
Lye primed wood floors may after approx. 1 hour
be cleaned with Wood Cleaner. Alternatively the lye
primed surface may after approx. 8 hours be polished
with a green or black pad under the polishing
machine and finally vacuum cleaned. After a drying
time of 8 hours at 20° C (the wood must be completely dry) the wood floor may be oiled with Wood Floor Oil, Master Oil, Colour Oil or High Solid Master Oil or soaped with Natural Soap. The surface may also be finished with Oil Lacquer.
