    Bicast / Bycast leather is split leather with a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface and then embossed. One common problem is the finish becomes sticky

    Kit B7 is the recommended kit to solve the sticky issue.

    From pictures #2
    It looks like fabric remnants becomes stick to it and when sitting on it and getting up will hear a familiar peeling sound. The topcoat has deteriorated and will need a refreshing new application to solve the sticky problem as follows:

    1st The surface soiling has to be removed and this is best done with Degreaser-2.2 working with the Eraser-4 to remove all sticking residue off with sponge extraction.
    2nd Surface is rinse to a squeaky clean with Acidifier-2.0.
    3rd When dry any roughness is sand accordingly.
    4th Crosslinker-25 is transfer into the BicastTop-76G and mixed well before application of your choice, best is with a varnishing soft brush to reduce streaks. Airbrushing will give professional result.
    5th Let dry in-between coats and sanding an option to smoothen the original roughness or surface undulating effect.
    6th When dry Protector-B+ application will impart a smooth buttery-feel non-stick surface for immediately use when dry.

    Clean it with Lexol or oil-based cleaner.
