The 2 day detailers SMART repair course is for vehicle detailers looking to offer specialist detailer cleaning and repairs to leather interiors. Make sure you bring a leather item with you to work on like a car seat.
We go through the different types of leathers in vehicles today and what isn't leather and what some car manufacturers call leather that is, in fact, fake and how to handle this. The 2-day detailers course covers all leather ID and general SMART repairs
Car manufacturers today are using all sorts of names for leather when it isn't leather at all, simply put its vinyl, you only have to look at the classic minis they used a product called Vynide, again this is vinyl, it carefully used part of the names vinyl and hide to make it sound like leather trim.
We look into Artico that Mercedes call man-made leather and SensaTec what BMW calls it, all of these items are just vinyl.
Even names like naugahyde have been used for the automotive industry, basically, it was a knit fabric backing material covered with polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
We look at the different methods for restoration, cleaning and care of these materials, we also look at what some believe to be suede when it is in fact Alcantara.
The course goes through colouring mixing, carrying our colour repairs, scuffs, cigarette burns, tears and wear holes.
Along with dye transfer removal, how to handle this and resolve the problems without causing issues to the man-made materials or genuine leather and what to do in the event of non-removal and how to restore this back to its former glory.
The course also looks at full seat colouring along with steering wheels, gear sticks and door cards.
