Fluid Leather
  • Fluid Leather is only recommended for damage where a filling is necessary. For scratches and general wear-and-tear on the colour surface we recommend smoothing the surface with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad and refreshing the colour with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh.
  • The surface of COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather is smooth and shiny after drying. To hide the repair, apply COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh in the respective colour to the area. This covers the gloss of the COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather. Lightly dab the COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh several times with a sponge on the repair and dry with a hair dryer between layers until the desired covering is achieved.
  • Degrease the repair area with COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaning Spirit in order to remove care product residue.
  • Before starting any repairs with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather, smooth rough areas and scratches with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad 
  • For hardened leathers, use COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather before any treatment with COLOURLOCK Old Leather Softener. This oily treatment would reduce the adhesion of the COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather.

PROCEDURE

Fill the damaged areas with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather and spread evenly with a spatula. Leave to dry for 1-2 hours, depending on the amount used. Repeat the procedure until the repaired area is as full and smooth as possible.

COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather cannot be sanded dry. This would damage the repair.

We recommend using the COLOURLOCK GLD Pen to smooth the repair. The GLD Solvent slightly dissolves the surface of the COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather and provides a smoother finish.

Open the lid of the COLOURLOCK GLD Pen and press down the felt tip several times until it is moistened. If the felt tip gets too moist, remove the excess quantity by cleaning it with a cloth. Smooth the repair area carefully with the moistened felt tip. When the repair area is wet with GLD, an additional treatment with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad can be done to smooth the repair area. Always work with a small amount of GLD to prevent the repair area from becoming too dissolved. Using GLD, a repair can be adjusted to achieve the best possible result.

Professionals can repair the graining on a work area using a Repair Grain. Usually, old leathers are smooth and do not need a new graining.

The tip of the COLOURLOCK GLD Pen can be removed and reversed when worn. Especially when working on a new colour, it is necessary to change or turn the felt tip upside down.

Finally, repairs with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather must be recoloured with COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh to balance differences in colour and gloss. In order to cover the COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather sufficiently, the COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh should be dabbed onto the area several times and dried between the layers with a hair dryer. After 24 hours treat the leather with Leather Protector.
 

A HOLE WITH MISSING LEATHER

Holes should be reinforced before repairing by gluing a thin piece of cloth underneath the hole with COLOURLOCK Leather Glue. Cut out a small piece of the original leather from a hidden area and adjust its shape according to the hole. Use the COLOURLOCK Leather Glue to glue it onto the piece of cloth and the edges of the hole. Close the visible rims with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather.

Leathers with big tears must first be examined in order to decide whether it would be better to replace the weak leather. Especially long tears in old and rough leathers, or in areas of high use, are often irreparable or not durable enough after a repair. We recommend the repair of tears only on stable leathers and only if the tear is no larger than a few centimetres.

Procedure: Minor tears which are not under tension should be provisionally glued with COLOURLOCK Leather Glue from edge to edge. Then close the tear with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather, as explained.

Tears under high tension should be backed by thin cloth. In the case of very large tears and/or very rough leathers, it is advisable to sew the leather with a thin but strong thread. Place a seam every 3-4 centimetres with the starting knot on the leather's reverse. Cover the thread with COLOURLOCK Fluid Leather.

If the leather is not too rough, drill a small hole to the right and the left of the tear (approximately 2-3 millimetres) and sew with a round needle. Lay the knot underneath and pull the tear together. Tears in areas of frequent use should always be replaced by new leather when they are too large; the same is true for weak or hardened leathers.
In cases like these, it is more advisable to replace the leather.

Black leather.

Gummy at first then it settles and becomes a pleather like glue. Must use a lot and also great to seal the leather.

Love Liquid Leather!

I have had the most amazing, wonderful results with Liquid Leather...I used the off white on my leather couch to repair over twenty scratches made by my cat. Since I have four matching pieces of furniture I was going to have to refurnish the entire room...now my couch looks brand new ...this product saved me thousands of dollars! I couldn't be more please with the result and it was a snap to use!

Looks great and adds renewed life

Leather couch repair on first delivery went in course but customer service sent a new tube which was thinner and matched the original texture. The product closed a pinky sized hole completely.

Recommended Products for Fluid Leather

Refresher for scratches
Leather Fresh Dye
Leather Fresh is a colour refresher (dye) for scratches, worn, or faded leather. Leather Fresh is ideal to refresh colour damages on car leather, furniture leather, leather garments and handbags. Do not use on porous leathers unless colouring the entire surface - it can make the surface appear patchy. It can be sponged on or sprayed using an airbrush.  Application Always test any products first on a hidden area to test for colour match!Firstly, clean the leather thoroughly and prepare the surface. Use Mild Leather Cleaner for normal degrees of soiling or Strong Leather Cleaner to remove heavier dirt (where the leather has been neglected for many years). Cleaning prior to treatment ensures the paint bonds to the surface well and ensures durability. Use Leather Cleaning Brush to effectively remove all ingrained dirt. Cleaning removes dirt but for long lasting results you should also de-grease using Leather Cleaning Spirit.Use a sponge to apply the colour evenly, working from seam to seam. Dry afterwards with a hair dryer. On small spots, a one application is sufficient. Apply multiple thin layers and dry each layer using a hair dryer.A day later, after it dries, apply Leather Protector. It gives the leather a good sheen and helps blend the repair. It contains antioxidants, which stops the leather's decay, and its UV filters protect the surfaces of old and valuable leathers from bleaching and fading. Also keeps the leather supple.  46 standard colours and prepare special colours according to sample or manufacturer name.

GLD Pen 40 ml
The GLD Pen can be used to smooth down Fluid Leather or Filler repairs. Amount: 40 ml Application: If the damaged area is large, it may not be possible to achieve a smooth and even surface with a spatula. Post-processing is required but Liquid Leather should not be sanded dry, as it would damage the repair. Instead smooth the repaired area with the GLD Pen. GLD Solvent dissolves the upper layer of the repair substance, so that the surface can be easily reshaped. Open the cap of the COLOURLOCK GLD Pen and press down the felt tip several times, so that it soaks up the GLD Solvent. Dab off any excess with a piece of cloth. Carefully dissolve the dried Liquid Leather repair, smooth it down and let it dry again. Alternatively, the repair can be sanded with the COLOURLOCK Leather Sanding Pad after dissolution. Both methods serve for smoothing down a repair. Always work gently and with a small amount of GLD Solvent. Too much liquid causes the repair to "blur". This process can be repeated as many times as required, until you are satisfied with the result. The felt tip of the COLOURLOCK GLD Pen can be taken out in case of soiling or wear and be replaced the other way round. This exchange should always be performed after a colour change.
