COLOURLOCK Primer ensures good adhesion between the leather surface and the leather colour. It is sticky, and sinks into the leather binding the colour to the surface. It has a very soft binder and reduces the use of colour considerably, which increases the softness of the leather.
Before priming, the leather should be prepared (cleaned and sanded) according to the instructions provided. The amount used must be according to the kind of leather it is being used on. The more porous a leather is, the more primer should be used. For extremely porous leather we recommend 'Primer PLUS' which is a concentrated product and only recommended on porous leather. Pre-treating repair areas (scratches, tears, holes, etc) with Primer improves the adhesion of the leather filler and makes the repair more durable. In case of rips and cracks, the primer can also be applied with a sponge or a brush. The Primer can also be used as a thinner for the Leather Colour (max. 30%), so it is ideal if aniline leather needs minor recolouring and a soft grip (like for garments).
This product will need to be sprayed using a spray gun. It is suitable only for professionals who repair leather on a regular basis and have experience in spray work.
COLOURLOCK Leather Colour is the best choice for recolouring or changing the colour of pigmented Napa leather, vinyl and plastic. Leather Colour is applied with a spray gun or an airbrush. The leather colour has a high covering power but still maintains the features of the leather. It can also be used for converting nubuck to napa and aniline leather to pigmented leather. The Leather Colour is a water based formula that gives extremely high adhesion values if used correctly. It is fully approved for use by leading manufacturers in the automotive , furniture and the aircraft industry. The COLOURLOCK repair method requires that you use Primer, Top Coat and Crosslinker for best and long lasting results. Available in 22 primary colours. Additionally, we offer a pallet of five luminous colours that can be mixed with the 22 primary colours.Note - This product will need to be sprayed using a spray gun. It is suitable only for professionals who repair leather on a regular basis and have experience in spray work.
COLOURLOCK Luminous Colours are available in addition to the 17 primary colours. Many leather items such as motorcycle racing suits, trendy handbags, jackets or other accessories have luminous or fluorescent coloured leather. As these luminous colours cannot be achieved only by using the 17 primary colours, the Luminous range comes in very handy for special work and increases the scope to repair and recolour. They can be mixed with our 17 primary Leather Colours to achieve a specific shade or tone. Top Tip: If colouring an area in a fluorescent colour, apply a layer of white before and if necessary thin them down with water. Luminous Colours are somewhat transparent and slightly thicker than standard colours and hence show up better on a white background. This product will need to be sprayed using a spray gun. It is suitable only for professionals who repair leather on a regular basis and have experience in spray work.
COLOURLOCK Top Coat is a clear transparent product which seals the colour coat. It gives the leather's surface a protective seal against water and dirt, making it insensitive against general wear and tear. The Top Coat is available in a "Dull", "Gloss", "High Gloss" and "Vehicle, Furniture, Vinyl" versions. All versions can be mixed with each other. Professionals usually use the "Matt" and "Gloss" version and mix the two to get the desired level of gloss.Companies that don't work with these products on a regular basis tend to stock the 'ready-to-use' satin Top Coat "Vehicle, Furniture and Vinyl". The Top Coat "High Gloss" is for surfaces where the "Top Coat Gloss" does not provide satisfactory results. The Top Coat always has to be applied with Crosslinker IC2. The Crosslinker provides the necessary stability for the Top Coat. Only on very soft Aniline, where the grip of the leather should be preserved as well as possible, very little Top Coat without Crosslinker may be applied.
Important: This product will need to be sprayed using a spray gun. It is suitable only for professionals who repair leather on a regular basis and have experience in spray work.Please consult us before buying this product if you have any doubts or questions.

What is the biggest problem with repairing leather? We asked our
customers and received the same reply over and over again: How can I
manage mixing the right and fitting leather colour? Until now, the
answer (and the challenge to the craftsman) was: a solid training, a
keen eye for colours and lots and lots of mixing experience. This will no longer be an issue - introducing the ColourScannerPRO! The ColourScannerPRO
is a very compact, Bluetooth®-tethered tool for formula selection which
enables you to scan leather colours and immediately view fitting
formula suggestions – making colour mixing a breeze. The device
will be calibrated by us and comes readily supplied with our up-to-date
formula database, containing more than 500 colours from the automotive
and furniture sector. We are continuously working on expanding this
selection (aiming for 5,000 colours), steadily improving measuring
precision. Simply use your mobile phone (iOS and Android alike)
to measure leather colours, to receive mixing suggestions or to create
COLOURLOCK Leather Filler is perfect for repairing scuffs, cracked
leather, tears, rips and holes on leather car seats, furniture, sofas,
settees, handbags, leather jackets, etc. The surface of COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather is smooth and matt once dry. To hide the repair, a colouration
with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh dye in the
respective colour is necessary. Lightly dab the COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh
several times with a sponge on the repair and dry with a hair dryer in
between the layers until the desired covering is achieved. Smooth rough
areas and scratches with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad before
starting any repairs with COLOURLOCK Leather Filler.The Leather Filler
has a removable cap. Remove the cap and fill the damaged areas. Evenly
spread the filler with a Spatula. Let the repair dry according to the
amount used - max 1-2 hours. Repeat the procedure until the repaired
area is as full and smooth as possible. Use COLOURLOCK GLD Pen to make
the surface smooth. Finally, repairs with COLOURLOCK Leather Filler must
be recoloured with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh to balance differences in
colour and gloss. In order to cover the COLOURLOCK Leather Filler
sufficiently, the COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh should be dabbed onto the
area several times and dried in between the layers with a hair dryer.
For purposes of care, the leather should be treated with COLOURLOCK Leather Protector a day later.Please Note: COLOURLOCK Leather Filler is
only recommended for damage where a filling is necessary. Scratches and
general wear and tear on the colour surface do not require a treatment
with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather. In such cases, we recommend to smooth the
surface with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad and to refresh the
colour with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh dye.
To make repairs invisible, an exact imprint of the leather structure must be
pressed into the filling repair products.The COLOURLOCK Fast Grain
Maker Set is a quickly hardening, two-component product to create Repair
Grains to press a grain structure into the repair area, filled with Filler, Fluid
Leather or Leather & Plastic Paste.
Napalan Finish is a soft finish for Double Face, Napalan, Novopel and similar coated suede leathers. Napalan Finish forms a flexible, soft surface without hardening the leather.
Application: After cleaning the leather, first spray the leather with water repellent spray. Waterproof well to prevent the finish sinking deep into the leather surface. Then iron in one direction until the surface is as smooth as possible. Second spray Napalan Finish evenly over the surface and dry immediately with a hot-air gun. Quick drying ensures that the leather does not soak the finish. Repeat until the desired optic has been attained. Iron the surface again.
Nubuk Fresh is a gentle water-based tint suitable for
refreshing and re-tinting suede and buffalo leather that is not too faded.
1 liter is sufficient for one leather set. In rare cases the
need may be higher. 250 ml is sufficient for smaller objects or for blending.
Nubuk Fresh 250 ml is only available in the basic colors for
self-mixing. From one liter also special colors and colors F001 - F046 are
Nubuk Fresh is easy to use and can easily correct light
fading of dark suede. In case of strong fading and dark stains on light
leathers, the covering power is not sufficient! Recoloring is not possible!Nubuk Fresh can be applied either with a sponge, a pump
spray bottle or with a spray gun. Application with a spray gun is always the
first choice.Nubuk Fresh has a pleasant feel with very good adhesion.
Nubuck, velour, aniline and buffalo leathers regain their color freshness after
Always test all products first on a concealed area for
Always thoroughly clean and degrease the smooth or nubuck
leather to be treated before dyeing! If possible, dry-clean the leather first,
especially if it is very greasy. Otherwise clean with the leather cleaning
petrol and/or the grease remover spray and/or with the leather sanding pad.
Leather that is too heavily spotted or leather that has been soaked with sweat
is not suitable for color refreshing. The tint would not be accepted evenly and
would not adhere sufficiently to the leather fiber.
Spray Nubuk Fresh thinly from seam to seam and allow to
dry. After drying, carefully brush or rub the surface with a terry cloth towel.
Repeat process as needed. Be careful of drips. They will cause stains. Redyeing
or lightening of rough leathers is not possible. For very dark leathers used in
cars and furniture, Nubuk Fresh can also be applied with a sponge.
Rough leathers - when they are new - always give off color
slightly. Even after treatment with Nubuk Fresh, a white cloth will produce a
slight abrasion. However, this is harmless. If a fixation is still desired,
Nubuk Fresh Neutral can be applied after the color refreshment. In addition to
the impregnation, this also fixes the color. In extreme cases, add 1%
Always treat nubuck leather with Aniline & Rough
Leather Protector and Leather Impregnation. This maintains the leather, keeps
it supple, and reimpregnates the leather.
COLOURLOCK Aniline Dye is not a pigment-based colour. Aniline Dye is
transparent like ink and ideal as thinned additive for the creation of multi-
coloured effects on leather. Aniline Dye can be added to the Primer, the
Leather Colour or the Top Coat. The concentration should be kept below
5% to prevent the Aniline Dye from bleeding through the top! Always check
with a rub test for discolouration.Aniline dye is available in black, yellow, blue, red and brown
COLOURLOCK Antique Finish is a colour touch-up based on aniline dye to create an antique effect on porous aniline leather. It is mostly used to refresh antique, uncoloured and embossed leather.

It is mostly used to refresh antique, uncoloured, vegetable-tanned and embossed leather. The colour should be applied using a sponge. The wipe marks created by the sponge together with this product's very low opacity / covering power contribute to the antique look. It can be mixed with COLOURLOCK Leather Colour for a deeper tone and higher opacity if desired. For best results, apply a layer of COLOURLOCK Primer before using this product to prepare the surface, and fix the final look with COLOURLOCK Top Coat and Crosslinker at the end. COLOURLOCK Antique Finish is available in black, yellow, blue, red and brown. Brown is the most common colour. Note - whilst spraying is not necessary, a certain amount of knowledge of spray work will be helpful to achieve excellent results with this product.
COLOURLOCK Crosslinker IC2 improves the friction values, sensitivity and protective qualities of Top Coat. It makes the surface more robust, and reduces the overall consumption Top Coat. With soft surfaces 1-2% COLOURLOCK Crosslinker IC2 must be added to COLOURLOCK Top Coat. 1% with soft furniture and garment leather, 2% with robust car and furniture leather. When colour changing in cars or furniture, we recommend adding an additional 2% Crosslinker IC2 to the COLOURLOCK Leather Colour. On hard surfaces (dash boards, steering wheels, etc.) it is recommended to add 5% to the Leather Colour and 3% to the Top Coat. This is important for hard plastic surfaces to make them scratch resistant. On soft vinyl upholstery, we recommend adding 3% Crosslinker IC2 in the Leather Colour and also 3% in the Top Coat. Important: The mixture of Top Coat and Crosslinker has to be stirred well before every use. If the mixture is not stirred before use it may dissolve the colour over time if exposed to water. Crosslinker IC2 is extremely reactive with water. All contact with water and humidity should be avoided. Always close the lid after use. The Crosslinker becomes viscous and then hard when in contact with water. Mix only as much Top Coat with Crosslinker as you need for the subsequent treatment. Otherwise the Crosslinker will lose its effect. Please follow the safety instructions. This product is flammable. This product will need to be sprayed using a spray gun. It is suitable only for professionals who repair leather on a regular basis and have experience in spray work.
Made in Germany Prevents reappearance of old dye marks on leather Creates a block between leather and dye stain Application areas: Car Leather, Furniture Leather, Shoes, Bags & Accessories, Leather ClothingFor: Pigmented leatherCOLOURLOCK Ink & Dye Blocker prevents the migration of old ink and other dye stains from coming through a newly coloured area. This is very effective when repairing stains caused by marker pens, ballpoint pens, glue migration or black mildew. Such marks often migrate through the new colour layer after a while. Applying the blocker will prevent this. Important: Clean the dye stains throughly to remove as much dye as possible before using the Blocker.
COLOURLOCK Wax Slip and Soft Slip are added to the Top Coat to achieve
grip effects. With Wax and Soft Slips it is possible to achieve a waxier
or softer surface grip.
Mix 3-5% Soft or Wax Slips with Top Coat.
Wax Slip is often used to generate a waxy grip on furniture or garment leather.
The COLOURLOCK Metallic Effect is available in pearl, bronze, gold,
silver and red. It’s an additive for the Top Coat to achieve a metallic gleam
on the leather. Normally, 5-10% of the Metallic Effect is added to the Top
Coat Gloss, because most metallic leathers have a glossy surface. Metallic
Effect can also be mixed with Top Coat Dull and any other mixtures of the
different Top Coats. The Metallic Effect can be enhanced by multiple applications. Crosslinker IC2 always has to
be added according to the recommendations.In case of damage of the base colour under the Top Coat, these colour repairs must be done
first. It is possible to add the Metallic Effect to the colour, but a majority of the added amount
will be lost in the colour. Therefore, the usage with Top Coat is preferred and recommended.
The Metallic Effect of the Top Coat can be adjusted by adding little amounts of Leather Colour
or Aniline Colour to get better results. But only add transparent pigment colours like deep blue,
violet etc. White and ochre would "dirt" the colour effect too strongly.
A 100% approximation to the original is not always possible.
