KING RANCH leather care kits

kingback810x270.jpg

Ford King Ranch leathers have unique features similar to vegetable-tanned saddle leathers made popular by its cowboy and western aesthetic visual appeal, but instead of color going darker when exposed to sunlight its aniline dyestuff inevitably fades. Period color rejuvenating is rectified by hydrating into the leather structure to activate the dormant or excess dyestuff to resurface as an option before resorting to re-dying it. It’s clear topcoats help amplifies and magnifies the beauty of the grains are often subject to scuff, scratch, abrasion and wear that diminish its visual aesthetic. However, preventive routine care includes applying a rub-resistant, buttery-feel protection that reduces wears or damages to the clear topcoat. Restorative care to eliminate unwanted scuffing, scratches and abrasion is by refinishing it with a clear topcoat. Other common problem is the leather becoming darker when exposed to body contact especially the console and prolongs neglected darkening contact leads to cracks. Preventive care to the darkening effect is by removing the body oil, grease and sweat on a routine basis with a leather-safe pH 3 to 5 cleaning system both removing the contamination and protonating the leather at the same time from darkening effect or denaturing the leather or reverting leather to rawhide. Most darkening effect from body contact contamination causes damages to the topcoat, dyestuff and denatures the leather. Color restoration to camouflage after restorative cleaning and conditioning will require a transparent coating dyestuff and the darkest stain becomes the lightest color matching just to camouflage it. Option is to use a translucent dyestuff for a better coverage of the unwanted stains. Satin luster topcoat instead of gloss helps reduces camouflaging clarity as well.
