    You have a choice of repair or refinishing, are you sticking to just repairs only?

    Upsized products from 60gm / 2.1oz to 120gm / 4.2oz are Adhesor-73, Bicast-32, Bicast-76 and BicastTop-76G. Standard colors available in Black, Antique-Brown, Dark-Brown and Red-Brown – please email roger@LeatherDoctor.com for your option.

    Leather Doctor® Kit B8.cl, Bicast leather color refinishing kit is design for a holistic restoration approach to not only the finishes but also rejuvenating the leather crust for suppleness. Most of these repairs are for abrading damages into the leather split-suede crust.

    Most of these exposed areas may be contaminated with foreign soiling that includes conditioners, protectors, body oil, grease and sweat or alkaline overexposure from non leather-safe cleaners.

    A comprehensive repair for a long-term lasting solution will require a holistic approach to deal with both the exposed leather split-suede for structural integrity and surface finishes for aesthetic.

    A leather-safe restoration system begins with removing foreign contamination from the penetrated leather structure and from the surface with the proven Degreaser-2.2 follows with Rinse-3.0 to a healthy squeaky feel.

    A pH in-balance leather structure with alkalinity overexposure will manifest as tackiness, stickiness or in extreme cases sliminess. The ionic strength of such denaturing leather will need to be strengthen by protonating its ionic positive (+ve) with the help of Acidifier-2.0 until the leather is revert back to a healthy pH chemistry integrity.

    Penetrated soiling may be further moves with the help of Hydrator-3.3 by successive wicking process with optional reverse transfer technique and erase off with Eraser-4 for a satisfactorily inspection.

    Leather rejuvenating system for softness and strength is accomplishes with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 - Hydrator-3.3 system.

    Crust weakness from dry rotting will require an optional Impregnator-26 to strengthen it.

    Surface uneven absorption is seals with Adhesor-73 to smooth out the suede and restore a skin to reduce the need for color over-coating thus increase its flexibility and stretchability from coating premature cracking.

    With Adhesor-73 as a base for adhesion promotion as well, it is ready for color coating with Bicast-32 an opaque pigment coloring to block out the unwanted based color. Bicast-76 is an aniline transparent color that gives the beauty of depth as the secondary coloring to simulate the appearance of aniline leather. And BicastTop-76 is a gloss topcoat that seals the coloring from bleeding, crocking and resistant to cleaning during the course of the leather useful life.

    Protector-B+ imparts a non-stick rub-resistant surface with a buttery feel, reduces noises that translate into less friction wear. As the leather surface is well lubricated it reduces compression when comes to heavy body contact thus reduces compressed creases, wrinkles thus prolong the useful life of the new finishes.

    Note the products suffix numbers denotes the pH value of the product.
