Catalyst for oils with high abrasion tolerance !

LIGNA®’s CATALYST is an additive that improves performance, drying speed and reduces curing time by 1/3! This product is only compatible with traditional wood finishing oils like TANDEM-2 or new generation oils like PRONTO and EASY-SOLO. CATALYST should not be used with water-based products, hybrid oils or exterior oil. This catalyst provides a high tolerance to chemical and mechanical aggressions and ensures a durable finish.

  • Accelerates drying speed
  • Increases performance and durability
  • Reduces cure time by 1/3
  • Provides high tolerance to chemical and mechanical aggression
  • Compatible with penetrating oils for wood surfaces

Mixing :

Mix the oil and catalyst together thoroughly. Never add more than 5-6% catalyst to the finishing oil.

  • 54 mL of catalyst for ± 946 mL of oil.
  • 220 mL of catalyst for ± 3,78 L of oil.

Application :

According to the oil manufacturer’s recommendations.

After 5-10 minutes, remove any excess oil by rubbing the surface with a cotton cloth.

If the temperature in the room is high when applying, do not wait more than 5 minutes to elapse before removing the excess, otherwise the product will dry on the surface. Catalysed oil dries more quickly.
