    Default Peters- Peeling flaking chairs

    Roger,
    We have these 2 chairs that are flaking and peeling. They were restored by someone else. We need to strip them down and restore them. How should we do it?

    >>> We need to strip them down

    Use Stripper-2.3 (leather-safe) for stripping unwanted finishes.
    And a stripper brush (StrippingBrush-9
    http://www.leatherdoctor.com/strippingbrush-9/
    helps detailing the stitches more efficiently).


    >>> and restore them. How should we do it?


    1st - Determine original finishes by removing “flaking and peeling... restored by someone else.” If there are signs of fading, then it is most likely aniline dyed. And Aniline-76
    http://www.leatherdoctor.com/aniline-76/
    will restore back to original finishes. If there are no signs of fading, then probable it is semi-aniline using micro pigment like Micro-54.

    >>> How should we do it?

    The standard of refinishing with Leather Doctor system is as follows:


    Step-1 - Preparation for Refinishing:
    Remove accumulated soiling, grease and oil and unwanted finishes in this case with Stripper-2.3 and follows with rinsing either Acidifier-2.0 or Rinse-3.0. A through stripping with rinsing in most cases suffice. Otherwise all known stains are removed accordingly.


    Step-2 - Leather Rejuvenating System:
    The close-up pictures shows evident of dryness as cracks.
    And will need Hydrator-3.3 to soak through the leather structure to lessen the cracks and plumps it as well.
    When the leather structure is swollen up, Fatliquor-5.0 is repeated replenished until the fatliquor stays on the surface and absorbed no more.
    Leave to natural dry and repeat one more cycle of Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 till the leather absorb no more.
    All surface fatliquor residues are then removed with Hydrator-3.3 to a squeaky feel.
    Leave to slow overnight dry for extra softness.


    Step-3 - Dry Preparation:


    Eraser-4 and fine sanding is used accordingly to remove existing deteriorating finishes.


    Step-4 - Repairs:

    Any repairs follows accordingly.


    Step-5 - Adhesion Promotion

    Adhesor-73 is scrub with 3M white nylon pad to remove deteriorating finishes and wipe with a lint-free towel.
    This primer preparation, applied by scrubbing, ensures no failure to the new finishing, you mentioned above . . . (flaking and peeling . . . restored by someone else).


    Step-6 Color Finishing:

    Aniline-76 (transparent) or Micro-54 (opaque) when both are mixed in equal ratio it becomes (translucent).


    Step-7 Topcoating:


    Aniline-76 matches AnilineTop-76 in gloss or satin luster.
    Micro-54 matches MicroTop-54 in the satin luster as the common match.


    Step-8 Protector:

    Rub-resistant protector will reduce flaking and peeling as well from friction rubs.

    Default Peters flaking chairs

    hey Roger, this is pat. so the stripper 2.3 does work very well in the stripping process after I got out what I could chemically I tried some sanding which I probably shouldn't have. most of the arms look great this one seems to be the most severe

    Also here is a close up of the piping along the arm. I seem to have sanded a bit too deep and turned it almost to a nubuck. any suggestions?

    >>> 1B: close: > 1C: closer:

    These close-up shows dryness of the leather, and need to proceed with Step-2 prior to the piping repairs in Step-4.

    Step-2 - Leather Rejuvenating System:
    The close-up pictures shows evident of dryness as cracks.
    And will need Hydrator-3.3 to soak through the leather structure to lessen the cracks and plumps it as well.
    When the leather structure is swollen up, Fatliquor-5.0 is repeated replenished until the fatliquor stays on the surface and absorbed no more.
    Leave to natural dry and repeat one more cycle of Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 till the leather absorb no more.
    All surface fatliquor residues are then removed with Hydrator-3.3 to a squeaky feel.
    Leave to slow overnight dry for extra softness.
