Product Description

Vachetta Leather Dye-Transfer Stain Remover - Kit-V5.ds

 

Dye-transfer stains from new blue jeans, including clothing, fabric, paper and plastic object is a common occurrence.

Most dyestuff are acidic in nature and so is naked leather thus is easily rubbed and transferred onto vachetta leathers.

 

Vachetta leather is pH sensitive that even clean tap water with a pH value of neutral 7 will easily marks and rings it.

However, to remove a dyes transfer stain would also require a mild pH 7.9 surface active agent to moves it.

By doing so would then need a low pH value 2.0 rinse to neutralized it back to its original pH value of 3-5 without producing any side effects. Tackiness if any is rectified during the low pH value rinsing process to return the leather to a healthy squeaky feel. By the way tackiness is a sign of leather denaturing back to raw hide as the tanning agent breaks the ionic hydrogen bonding with the leather protein fiber.

 

Returning the leather back to its original suppleness is accomplished with the process of leather rejuvenating with a hydrating and fatliquoring system.

 

Healing, sealing and a non-stick, rub-resistant protection is accomplished with a draggy-feel protector system.

This kit comes with reduce shipping weight, thus all the concentrates in the bottles have to be mix/cut and fill with distilled water prior to use.
