FAXE Special Lye

Series: 0288

Smoke effect on oak flooring

FAXE Special Lye stops untreated pine, spruce and pitch pine from yellowing and creates a change in colour typical for seasoned wood. Depending upon the type of wood, the heartwood will be accentuated, structure and grain will remain. Gives a smoked effect e.g. on oak. FAXE Special Lye is not pigmented. In order to apply colour at the same time, add up to 10% FAXE Combicolor.  If an even lighter colour on the surface of softwood is wanted, the FAXE Softwood Lye should be used. If the surface is of hardwood, then use FAXE Hardwood Lye.

Where to use:
FAXE Special Lye is used mainly on untreated or freshly sanded floorings, where a special surface is wanted. For oak, where a smoked or coloured tone is wanted or on softwood where the naturel look is wanted.

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 w ith 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 for particularly high-quality wooden floors, FAXE Wooden Floor Soap for robust and natural Scandinavian style soft wood floors and FAXE Tabletop Oil for table tops and worktops.
