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.
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).

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.
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.

COLOURLOCK Duller is a dulling agent to reduce the gloss level of Leather Colours applied on extremely matt surfaced leathers, which is especially the case with new vehicle leathers. More info: Add up to 5% Duller to the COLOURLOCK Leather Colour and use as normal. It is also possible to add up to 3% to the Top Coat. However, this can cause a greying effect on dark leathers. For this reason, we recommend adding it to the paint. To reduce the greying effect a max. 3% of Leather Colour can be added to the Top Coat. 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 Licker Oil is used to make dried and hardened old leather softer before it is professionally colored. Licker Oil is water-soluble and makes coloring easier. Application: First make all the necessary repairs with Filler or Liquid Leather. Then mix 20% Licker Oil with 80% warm water. Wipe the leather with the mixture and let the product sink into the surface. The mixture can be applied with a sponge or a cloth, or it can also be sprayed on very porous leathers on the backside of leather. Repeat if necessary. Wait at least a day before next treatment.Leathers which are to be colored after the treatment with Licker Oil should always be degreased with Leather Cleaning Spirit before the coloration. Wait at least a day between the treatment with Licker Oil and coloration to give the oil time to sink into the fibres. The leather can not be made as soft as new, but it will be greatly improved, and the risk of breaking will be strongly reduced.
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 thickener is used to thicken Filler, liquid leather neutral, and leather color and edge protection.
Stir in about 2 to 5%. After that, the mixture can be used immediately. In the following 24 hours, the thickener will still thicken a little.To thicken COLOURLOCK FillerCOLOURLOCK Filler remains white after drying. Therefore, mixing a few drops of colour into the Filler is recommended for achieving a closer match to the original colour.If too much colour is added, the Filler will become too liquid. This can be reversed by adding very small amounts of COLOURLOCK Thickener.Important: Use sparingly. The Filler does not have to be dyed completely! Too much Thickener added to colour will will weaken the strength of the Filler.Thus, only small amounts of colour should be added and the Thickener should only be added in exceptional cases. The same applies when working with Liquid Leather.The Thickener is also used to thicken Leather Colour. Stir in about 2% to 5% if possible, always wait 24 hours. The liquid will become thicker if left over night.
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.
