 2x 5ml Toners
 1x 5ml Gloss Enhancer
 2 x Sponge Applicators
 Instructions

 This is the most popular dye product in our range.

Additional Information.
If you are looking for a small maintenance dye to correct scuffs, scratches, discolouration in cracks and crease or to replace leather colour than has warn off then this box kit is perfect. There is typically enough dye to fully re-colour two bolsters or address local wear areas on all four bolster with enough dye left over for touch-ups (Or to re-colour a steering wheel) All leather changes shade so toners are supplied to enable you to tint for a closer match if required. Although rarely required it at least gives you the option especially if you’re undertaking a repair in the middle of a panel.
Whilst not recommend for use on plastics or dashboards (unless its leather). But if you do have a couple of unsightly scratches that catch your eye then we often recommend using a very small amount on the affected area, the results will be no worse than it is now. If you are looking to apply this dye on vinyl then you must use it in conjunction with Set 1 or 2, EP1 & EP2. Failure to do so can result in a short lived repair. If you are intending to change the colour of leather or vinyl then Set 1 or 2 EP1 & EP2 must be used prior to dye application.

 Concentrated Repair Dye

 Available in.
 65ml
 250ml
 500ml
 1 Litre

 Discription.
 A concentrated water based dye with built in sealer.

Additional Information.
There are a few factors to take into account when deciding what quantity of dye you may need when looking to completely re-colour leather. Remember if you have a light coloured interior then you will use more dye than if you had a dark coloured interior. How bad the wear will also affect the amount you use. If you apply the dye by hand you usually end up using more dye than if you were to spray the dye on. A 250ml will typically re-colour one seat with some left over for the passenger seat. 500ml should be enough for two front seats and maybe some interior parts and 1 litre enough for a family size saloon interior. Interiors such as Rolls Royce’s use a minimum of 1 litre, possibly 1.5 litres. If you are unsure please contact us.

Flexicote "Colour Accelerant"

 Discription.

Additional Information
Flexicote “Colour accelerator” can be used to quicken the process of changing a leathers colour. Typically use when you are looking to change a strong dark leather such as black, to a light colour, beige, cream, champagne etc thus reducing the overall amount of coats you apply to achieve a uniform finish. This is used in-between the application of EP1&2 and the final finish colour (Scuffmaster). This dye requires a separate matt sealer which is supplied with every purchase.
Flexicote can be used on its own (with sealer). If you are looking to do this then in most cases you will need to supply us with a sample no smaller than 2x2”. Flexicote dye cannot be used four touch-ups. Matt and gloss sealers can be mixed to achieve the desired finish.

Conditioners

gt11_leather_conditioner

GT11 Leather Conditioner

 Available in.
 250ml
 1 Litre

 Discription.
 A Leather Conditioner which resonates the smell of Real Leather.

Additional Information
GT11 Conditioner really is as good as it gets. Not only does it resonate the smell of fine leather but with periodic use it will reintroduce the natural nutrient content. Leather will either do two things over its lifetime. It will crease which is normal or it will crack. Cracked leather is a sure sign that your leather is drying out and if you think about it cracks will weaken the leather. So conditioning a minimum of three times a year (more in warmer climates) will most certainly prolong the life of your leather. Use sparingly and leave for a few days to soak in. For leather that's really dry apply conditioner over the course of a few weeks. If you find the conditioner has left a slightly gloss finish then you can wipe over with either GT11 or GT15 cleaner. Don't worry you will not be removing all the conditioner you have applied. You will just be removing the excess conditioner that has not soaked in and is sitting on top. .

EP 1&2 are mixed together and applied onto leather or Vinyl,either with a sponge, spraying or both. EP provides a solid foundation onto which the dye is applied. Ideally you should have enough to apply two coats of EP and before the second application has dried it is advisable to apply at least one coat of dye. EP once mixed must be used within 2 hours (add an hour longer for colder environments)dry each coat including the second coat with dye applied with a hairdryer. Set 1 typicially has enough to cover one full seat, Set 2 a full interior.
If you are looking to change the colour of leather or Vinyl then EP MUST be used. Failure to do so will result in colour adhesion failure. Your Colour change will not last!

 A two part solution that when mixed gives unbeatable surface protection

Additional Information
Top Coat Protection (TCP) is the ultimate in surface protection. If you are looking to offer the best protection to something you have dyed or looking to prolong your current leather or Vinyls surface finish then look no further. TCP is a two part solution that needs to be mixed before application.Once mixed simply apply with a sponge or airbrush and dry with a hairdryer. The more you apply the more protection you will get, but dont overdo it. To much TCP can start to turn the surface finish milky. Typically 2-3 medium coats will be enough. If you are applying TCP to a Black surface then be carefull, 1-2 light coats will be enough too much and you can get a dark blue finish. TCP Set 1 should be enough for 1 full seat and Set 2 a full interior. If you have Set 2 and do not want to use it all in one go, just mix half of TCP1 with half of TCP2.TCP1&2 when mixed must be appled within two hours (add an extra hour for colder environments)

Fillers

 Discription
 A flexible waterbased putty-type filler

Additional Information
Aquafil is a waterbased filler used for filling in small marks and scratches.Apply small amounts and dry with a hairdryer. Each application may sink "settle" when dried and further applcations maybe required to fill the damaged area before dye application.You can also add a small amount of dye to the this filler, turning it to whatever colour is required. Aquafil once fully dry can also be sanded. We typically use Aquafil for very small scratches on flexible areas such as seating as we find it a semi flexable filler. If you have deeper marks/scratches to fill then use Dutch Stress filler and then Aquafil to finish.You are able to fill much deeper types of damage on hard areas such as doorcards and dashboards as these are not "Moving Parts"

dutch-liquid-filler Dutch Stress Filler

 Available in.
 30ml

 

 Discription
 For use on cracks in areas that move/stretch.

Additional Information
Dutch stress filler is use to fill deeper damage such as cracks on flexible areas such as seating.Apply a small amount with a fine brush or toothpick and dry.More than one application may be required and once the depth of the damaged has been reduced you can also use( but not necssesary)Aquafil to finish. Cracks in leather appear because the leather has dried out. Cracks can be of any depth and can have hard raised edges. It is worth trying to lightly sand the cracks to reduce the appearence and try to make them look like natural creases, this will reduce the amount of filler thats applied.If sanding first we recommend using 800grit.
