Primers (adhesion promoters)

Product Description: PR-1 and PR-2 are water-based resins used in conjuction with denatured alcohol or acetone, to ensure adhesion on leather surfaces prior to repairs or color application. PR-1 is appropriate for such problematic leathers as nitrocellulose finished, pull-up, oil-tanned, or pH damaged. It is also used to provide hold-out when finishing open-pored leathers, such as full- or semi-aniline, and to retain softness and break characteristics. PR-2 is for finished leathers only, to promote adhesion on leathers exhibiting signs of poor adhesion, such as peel-up or flaking, or leathers that fail adhesion tests prior to repair compound or finish application. SG-4 is an economical one-step cleaner, pH corrector, and primer for all types of leather surfaces that is supplied ready to use.

Oil Extractor

Product Description: Used to remove oils from leather in areas saturated with human or pet body oils. Usually the result of repeated, extended exposure, oil saturation is most commonly found in headrest, arm-front, or seat-top areas, and represents as a concentrated darkening of a particuar area. If you'd like to view the Product Description and Application sheet for this product, click this link.

Please note - The use of oil extractor will most likely bleach the color from the area treated on unfinished leathers, and will require subsequent color application to fully restore the area to the original aesthetic. If you are not a leather repair technician, we recommend contacting us prior to purchase so that we can help you establish a restoration strategy after the oil extraction process.

Moisturizer

Product Description: Moisturizer is designed to re-instill moisture into dry and/or stiffened leather.
