PU leather is cheaper than standard leather, which is what makes it attractive, but is not as durable. It relies on the polyurethane coating for stability. This coating makes the leather feel colder than standard leather and it is more likely to stick to the skin.
The polyurethane coating requires special care – normal leather care products will not penetrate, while the classic wax and oil treatments will cause damage. PU leather is also very sensitive to contact from skin and hair and can easily crack, which is why it needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly.
Use a lint-free dry or slightly damp cloth to dust the surface. Then, every 3 to 6 months, apply COLOURLOCK PU Protector gently with a soft cloth. This will remove dirt and keep the surface smooth and glossy.
Deep scratches and abrasions are difficult to treat. Sometimes light scratches can be removed by heating with a hair dryer. The PU coating has to be heated well to remove the scratches. In most cases, the scratches disappear almost completely. But this has to be done with extreme caution as excessive heating can cause irreparable damage to the coating. It’s advisable to test first by making similar scratches – but not too deep – on a hidden area. Where possible, areas that come into contact with skin and hair should, in addition to regular cleaning and treatment with PU Protector, be protected by pillows and blankets. Damaged PU coatings (matt, sticky, rough or cracked) can rarely be repaired. The options are to have the PU leather replaced by an upholsterer or buy new furniture.

Not much needs to be said, using it on $1100 pleather jacket, it works great.

Worked fine on Tesla Model S ultra white seats
Tried this product because Tesla uses polyurethane seats. Not sure if this product is truly compatible, but the liquid is white, so it didn't stain my seats and seemed to clean/protect/make them silky smooth. I also followed it up with the Leather Shield to protect further, which works great despite the seats not being leather.

Perfect for fashion boots made of polyurethane!
Well worth the purchase! I bought 2 pair of knee high boots, and both are polyurethane. I treated both pairs with this before I wore them out. I have been caught in snow a couple times with my boots which are more fashion boots as opposed to winter boots. The salt and the snow dries on the boots. I just wipe it away with a lightly damp cloth. My boots have kept up well over the last couple months, and I still treat them with this every few weeks while the weather is wet. This product makes them look great and cleans them right up. I hope to be able to extend the life of my tall boots with boot shapers and this product. I'm very happy.

As Advertised :)
Followed the instructions on the bottle & it protects & makes PU feel very smooth. Doesn't affect any colours on the furniture.

Preserving vinyl and faux leather.
I wish there was an easier way to apply. It does work really well with vinyl, time will tell if if the protection is worth the investment and the pieces not to crumble with age.

Didn't help at all. No difference noticed on the false leather.

It didn’t work
Bought this to fix/correct ‘sticky’ bicast leather sofa cushion. It didn’t work. After much research I ended up sanding the cushion with very fine car bodywork sandpaper, recolouring with dab on shoe polish and spraying several coats of silicone leather finish, sprayed from an old perfume bottle. It looked perfect but it still gets ‘sticky’ if it’s sat on for too long. We’ve ordered a new sofa.
