People Also Ask:
What is Perforated Leather?
Perforated leathers are easily recognizable by the tiny holes placed at regular intervals, which add pattern and texture to the leather.
Why Perforated Leather?
Perforated leather becomes breathable and sitting comfort increases as air easily flows through it. However, the cross-section of the perforated holes is raw suede.
Why are leather-safe Products Recommended for Perforated Leather?
Leather-safe products have a pH value close to the pH neutral of leather between pH 3 and 5 to preserve the leather chemistry integrity from side effects or reverting leather to rawhide. Besides, leather-safe frequent cleaning and conditioning free the perforation from clogging and cracking thus preserving their appearance, breathability, and sitting comfort greatly.
Why the Need to Periodically Condition Perforated Leather?
The perforated cross-section and stitching holes are suede and the original fatliquor comprises emulsified fat and oil, which evaporates much faster from these holes, without a periodical replenishing of the fat and oil the leather stiffs out and micro tears develop into cracks.
How is Conditioning Performed on Perforated Leather?
Conditioning, replenishing, or restoring softness to perforated leathers are performed by relaxing the leather thickness first to plump with Hydrator-3.3 so that the following Fatliquor-5.0 with its fat and oil water encased molecule could move freely to hydrogen bond with the leather fiber. Conditioning perforated leather at periodic intervals ensures long-term suppleness that prevents leather stiffness, creasing, and cracking.
