Auto Leather Color Refinishing Kit Ap7.cl by Leather Doctor is for abrasion damages from friction rubs while getting in and out of the seat. Most of these repairs may range from missing finishes to abrading damages to the leather structure. Some areas may be contaminated with foreign soiling as conditioners, protectors, body oil, grease, sweat, and alkaline overexposure with all-purpose cleaners.
A comprehensive repair for a long-term solution will require a holistic approach to dealing with the exposed structure and surface finishes.
The practical and functional suppleness of the leather depends on the structure and the average thickness between 0.9 to 1.2mm from stiffness and cracking.
The aesthetic aspect of the leather finishes averages 0.02mm (or 20 microns) in thickness for practical compressing and flexing from cracking.
How Leather Color Refinishing Works!
Step-1. A preview of a holistic leather-safe restoration system begins by stripping with Stripper-2.3 and rinsing with Rinse-3.0.
Step-2. Degreasing with Degreaser-2.2 follows with Acidifier-2.0.
The suffix numbers of these four products denote their pH value for recharging the protein fiber ionic positive besides the act of decontamination.
The leather integrity is revitalized once the ionic attraction between the positive protein fiber and its other constituents like the tanning agent and fatliquor (fat and oil) is activated.
Step-3. Leather suppleness is accomplished with Hydrator-3.3 and Fatliquor.5.0 rejuvenating system.
Step-4. Structural weakness from overstretching is re-strengthened with Impregnator-26, while uneven absorption is sealed with Adhesor-73. These repair and auxiliary products are necessary to reduce the need for color coating and increase its flexibility and stretchability from premature cracking.
Step-5. Protector-B imparts a non-stick, rub-resistant surface with a buttery feel, reducing noises that translate into less friction wear. As the leather surface is well lubricated, it reduces the compression of heavy body contact reducing compressed creases and wrinkles.
