Product Description

Leather Doctor FatliquorLS-5.5 is the leather-scented version that imparts a classic leather scent to mask the unpleasant odor with softness and strength. It is a pH 5.5 anionic charged emulsion fatliquor for rejuvenating leather of all types. It relaxes coarse breaks, creases and wrinkles enhance suppleness and prevent cracking. It softens the leather with stretchability, compressibility, and flexibility while enhancing its rip tensile strength greatly. It is for replenishing the original fat and oil that diminishes through sun-bleaching, aging, heat and alkaline overexposure or cleaning. When applied the emulsified fat and oil encased water molecule breaks free when hydrogen bond attraction takes place between the fat and oil with the protein fiber, and wicks out leaving a breathing space behind for leather transpiration to function naturally. The fat plumps the leather with fullness from easily collapsing into creases and wrinkles during stress or flex, while the oil lubricates the fibers so that they slide over one another like millions of inter-connecting hinges with smoothness. Thus helps to keep leather at its optimum physical performance and prevent premature aging. It is for all leather types including pigmented, aniline, vachetta, nubuck, suede, hair-on-hide and woolskin. Size options are available in Fill and Con. Fill is concentrate in the bottle to be cut/mix and fills with distilled water prior to use to save on shipping. The Con is concentrated to be cut/mix with distilled water at a ratio of 1: 5 prior to use.

Leather Approximate Quantity or Percentage of Fatliquor:

The quantities of fatliquor (fat and oil) contents retained in the leather after a universal tannery fatliquoring process may vary up to 14% depending on the leather types and it usage. This percentage drops as the fat and oil content diminish or leaches through aging, water, heat or chemical overexposure.

Leather rejuvenating or fatliquor replenishing is base on the weight of the leather in relation to the percentage of remaining fatliquor. A simple calculation of percentage of fatliquor topping up requirement would be as follows:

If the weight of the leather in question is 100gm and fatliquor (fat and oil) content meter reading is less than 1%.

By applying 80gm of FatliquorLS-5.5 to it will deliver an end result incremental of 13.3% fatliquor when dry as the 66.6% water contents evaporate.

In the leather rejuvenating Hydrator-3.3 > FatliquorLS-5.5 > Hydrator-3.3 system, Hydrator-3.3 plays an important role by relaxing, opening up the inter-fibrillary spaces, facilitating and redistributing colloidal water movement, protonating and doing all the pre-conditioning work prior to fatliquoring including cleaning up any excess surface remnants to have a sticky-free surface. In practice, the ratio for Hydrator-3.3 is 2 to 1 of FatliquorLS-5.5.

It works out to be approximately 160gm of Hydrator-3.3 plus 80gm of FatliquorLS-5.5 to replenish a 100gm dry leather from less than 1% back to the original tannery up to 14% fatliquor content.

Instruction:

1 Apply FatliquorLS-5.5 and redistribute with foam brush until saturation.

2 Repeat application each time water contents evaporate until fully saturated.

3 Drive remaining surface remnants free of milky fat and oil until it turns clear with Hydrator-3.3.

4 Allow natural drying for extra softness.

Tips:

1 When crispy dry, prior surface contaminations/damages may darken as soiling particulates resurface.

2 Removes soiling particulates with Eraser-4 for all leathers including nubuck and Eraser-5 for suede.

3 Stretching the darken areas lightly will also lighten the appearance.
