FAXE Softwood Lye

Series: 0283

Highlighting grain and protects softwood against yellowing.

FAXE Softwood Lye effectively stops natural pine, spruce or pitch pine from yellowing. The wood will take on a light, white, but seasoned appearance, typical of surfaces treated with lye. Depending upon the type of wood, the heartwood will be accentuated, structure and grain will remain.

Package dimensions: 1 l., 2,5 l., 5 l.
Coverage: 8-12 m²/L.
Dry time: Approx. 5 hours at 20°C.
Application: Nylon brush or lye applicator, plastic bucket, sanding pad or disc.
Fareikoner: GHS 05
Fareord: Danger
Risiko: - May be corrosive to metals.
- Causes severe skin burns and eye damage.

The wood must be sanded down, with a fine grain pad or disc, clean and dry. Remove stubborn dirt using FAXE Intensive Cleaner. When working with lye, always wear suitable gloves and protective goggles.

• Apply the undiluted lye evenly, with the grain, using a nylon brush or lambswool lye applicator. Smooth out overlaps, as long as the wood is still wet. For a particularly
intensive effect, repeat the process after the first coat has dried.
• When the wood has dried, remove the chalk-like coating and smooth the surface of the wood using a fine sanding pad or disc.

After Care:
The finish should be applied in to suit the planned usage: FAXE Wooden Floor Oil, FAXE Prestige Oil or FAXE Coloroil for particularly high quality wooden floors, FAXE Wooden Floor Soap for robust and natural Scandinavian-style softwood floors and FAXE Tabletop Oil for table tops and worktops. Products with a white pigment are preferable in all cases.
