A strong solvent cleaner used to remove the manufactured finish ready for recolouring or restoration. The leather prep is used to simply remove the finished coatings that the tanneries have put on. As well as doing this, it will remove any hair gel, stains, grease, waxes, oils & silicones which build up over the years, it’s very important they are all removed at this stage.
Failing to remove these will cause issues with colourants bonding and this will make the surface structure unsafe. The leather prep from the leather repair company strips away all colour coatings, helps to remove most cracks in the leather finish and surface. Those that cant be removed with the leather prep will require fibre binder and fillers.
Your surface is then ready for sanding to make it smooth again ready for applying colour from one of our colour repair kits or restoration kits. Any questions please don’t hesitate to e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Soak a cloth in leather prep and place this between some red (fine) emery cloth.
The red abrasive pad will release the leather prep through its pores as you start the removal action on the leather.
Never let your red abrasive pad get too dry as this can then cause damage to the leather grain structure which will cause issues with restoration.
Remove all the manufactured finish on the leather surface leaving it with no colour on it and in a state of being absorbent again ready for the application of the leather dyes.
