    Default Bicast Leather – problem with lots of lint and texture is rougher and sticky!

    Thanks, Roger. It's just one non-removable seat cushion on a love seat.
    That white stuff is from a pillow inadvertently placed there.
    There is a lot of lint and the texture is rougher, and sticky, of course, than the rest of the couch.
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Here are the instructions for solving your Bicast sticky problems.

    Instruction

    Wet Preparation:
    1. Protect floor with plastic covering from overspray and drips prior to stripping accumulated soiling.
    2. Shake the Degreaser-2.2 to gel prior to use.
    3. Transfer to the Eraser-4 on the sponge side for normal cleaning and the crepe side for an extra scrub.
    4. Apply with agitation onto the leather finish to remove surface soiling.
    5. Suspended soiling is extracted with a lint-free towel or cleaning sponge until towel shows clean.
    6. Spray Acidifier-2.0, agitate with Eraser-4 and extract until towel shows clean again.
    7. When dry, sand surface roughness and ensure free of foreign material with 2000-grit sandpaper.
    8. Speed dry with hair dryer, free of residue and is ready for topcoat application.

    Refinishing:
    1. Crosslinker-25 10% is added into the BicastTop-76G to control existing stickiness. Empty the entire 7gm of Crosslinker-25 into the 70ml half filled bottle of BicastTop-76G and stir or swill it well. Once the topcoat is cross-linked, it is best to used within 8 hours, otherwise it will be cured hard and be useless.
    2. Apply by foam brush lightly to avoid streaks or use soft varnishing brushes for streaks free result or airbrushing for professional result.
    3. Steaks are corrected by fine 2000-grit sanding when dry.
    4. Use a hair dryer for speed drying in-between coats to satisfaction.
    5. Let it overnight cure before non-stick protection.

    Non-Stick Protection:
    1. Protector-B+ is applied evenly with either foam brush or paper towel and is ready for use when dry.
    2. For routine application, a paper towel is recommended to simultaneously extract soiling.

The finish gone dull on the seating areas and any material comes in contact sticks to it. The finishes feels a bit rubbery but after 5mins of sitting clothing were stuck to it.

Stripping the surface contamination is done with Degreaser-2.2 and help from leather Eraser-4 for better traction to removed surface materials. Suspended soiling is towel extracted and rinse with Acidifier-2.0. 2000-grit sandpaper is used to smoothen rough surface. A 10% Crosslinker-25 is added to the BicastTop-76G for extra finish strength that cures stickiness. Protector-B+ imparts a non-stick buttery-feel against sticky soiling; a rub-resistant against friction wear and diffuses a leather scent that enhances leather sensuous and luxuriously.
