WOCA Driftwood Lye
WOCA Driftwood Lye Primer
If you’re looking for a weathered appearance on interior woodwork, WOCA Driftwood Lye will recreate this popular effect.
Suitable primarily for untreated oak and similar hardwoods, this pre-treatment oil is available in either white or grey and will give an attractive patina.
As a pre-treatment product, Driftwood Lye needs an additional coat of oil or soap to complete the protective system.
Preparation: You will need a suitable nylon brush or paint roller, plus a plastic paint tray. Contact with skin should be avoided, so wear protective clothing including gloves and eye protection. Make sure the product is kept out of reach of children and locked away after use. Brushes and equipment can be cleaned with water and soap.
Strong Application: Sand all woodwork with 120 grit abrasive immediately before using the lye. Remove all dust, ideally by vacuuming. Shake the lye well and pour into the paint tray, ensuring that no pigment remains in the container. Stir thoroughly and repeat now and again while working to maintain an even colour.
Use a nylon brush or paint roller to apply an even coat, working in the direction of the grain. At least 1 litre of lye is needed to cover 10m2 of timber.
Allow 24 hours drying time at 20 degrees C. Then denib the raised grain or standing fibres with a fine polishing pad. Alternatively, use a WOCA Polishing Machine fitted with an appropriate pad on large areas of flooring. Vacuum away all dust, then apply a suitable WOCA Diamond Oil or Natural Soap.
Grey – will create a weather-beaten patina on new oak
White – will give pale, tinted effect on oak
