    The sequence of products system in a holistic restoration is recommended as follows:

    1st – Picture is taken as reference for exposed areas and reading taken of the fatliquor content with a leather moisture meter or equivalent wood moisture meter.

    2nd – Duct tape is used to pull-off all existing lamination.

    3rd – Degreaser-2.2 > Rinse-3.0 and Acidifier-2.0 (further pH balancing if tackiness is detected) system removes foreign contamination.

    4th – Hydrator-3.3 preconditioned the stiff dried “mud-cracking” effect to swell the leather.

    5th – Fatliquor-5.0 replenished the fatliquor difference from existing reading to the optimum of 14%.

    6th – Adhesor-73 seals the leather crust for smoothness and even absorption for further color coating.

    7th – Bicast-32 an opaque coloring to block out base coloring.

    8th – Bicast-76 a transparent dyestuff to impart the beauty of depth.

    9th – BicastTop-76G seals the coloring with a gloss luster.

    10th – Protector-B+ protects the leather from wear with a rub-resistant, non-stick buttery-feel.

    Let me know of your further interest and we can go into details.

    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 follows with Fatliquor-5.0.
    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.

    Thank you Roger for your reply. How many square inches can this kit restore approximately?

    One fine coating from the upsize 120ml bottle covers 120sq.ft = 17’280 sq.in.
    You may wish to have a medium to heavy coating and at least 3 coating depending how absorbent the surface is therefore total coverage may reduce 3 to 4 times approximately 40sq.ft or 5’760sq.in.
