Perforated Leather Auto Seat Sticky Topcoat Refinishing - Kit-Sa7.st by Leather Doctor is formulated to restore the sticky problem associated with deteriorating urethane topcoat especially to common body exposed areas like the armrest and headrest. The system includes removing foreign contamination, pH balancing, a fresh new crosslinking topcoat applied and a non-stick protector for another lease of useful life. LeatherProCleaner-1.5 (pH 1.5), which takes care of the general non-body contact areas, follows with LeatherAcidifier-2.0 as rinse. Restorative cleaning both removes foreign contamination and reduces stickiness at the same time. Stripping the surface contamination including aged conditioners and protectors to the original finishes is done by LeatherDegreaser-2.2 with the help of LeatherEraser-4 for better traction to removed surface materials. Less body contact areas are generally clean over with LeatherProCleaner-1.5 in the same manner. Suspended soiling is towel extracted simultaneously and rinse with LeatherAcidifier-2.0 until it shows clean. Fine sanding helps remove deteriorated sticky clear topcoat, which turns powdery white but cease when color is pick up by the sandpaper and the dust free surface is ready to receive a new topcoat. A 10% LeatherCrosslinker-25 is mandatory added to the MicroLeatherTop-54S prior to refinishing for extra finish strength from stickiness. The application is dry between coatings to match the original luster level. LeatherProtector-B (scentless) imparts a non-stick buttery-feel against sticky soiling and rub-resistant against friction-wear. The optional LeatherScentedProtector-B+ extra feature further diffuses a leather scent enhancing the leather more sensuously and luxuriously. This starter kit is design as a holistic system, with 3 coatings of MicroLeatherTop-54S + LeatherCrosslinker-25 it covers approximately 80 square feet. Optional adds-on and refills are available as individual bottles. This is a concentrate fill up kit, thus the 250ml bottles need to be cut and fill with distilled water prior to use accordingly.
