    >>> We have a Baxter couch and the colour (especially seats) is gone.

    Looking at picture #3 the uneven wear to the topcoat contributed to the appearance where the loss of color intensity corresponded with the lost of topcoat besides fading.

    Color is restored in stages as follows:

    1 st - The existing topcoat is recommend to be removed with Razor-60 to reflect a more even appearance for easier color restoration during the wet preparation process with Degreaser-2.2 > Acidifier-2.0 (products suffix numbers denotes its pH value)

    2nd - Color intensity or richness is improved by activating the dormant dyestuff within the thickness of the leather with Hydrator-3.3.

    3rd Further saturation the color intensity is with Fatliquor-5.0 to up to 14% of fatliquor content.

    4th Further coloring intensity is worked with Adhesor-73 to resurface especially the scratch marks.

    5th It is at this stage that new color is decided or determine and the darkest unresolved stains becomes the lightest color just sufficient to camouflage it. Picture #3 shows the color range from yellow to orange and grains is shown in darker shade. Color intensity is control by mixing or cutting the matched Aniline-76 color with clear to limit the color intensity by a 25% incremental mix. Otherwise each color coating will intensify the color drastically.

    6th When the color is satisfactorily applied to even out appearance AnilineTop-76G gloss is applied and any luster adjustment is done with the satin gloss with a camouflaging effect.

    7th Protector-B+ leather scented or B scentless protects and prolongs the finishes from wear and friction rubs.
