Got new leather car seats, new leather surface or item/piece of furniture that you need to protect? Use the New Leather Care Kit with Mild Leather Cleaner and Leather Shield from Colourlock, for use on new pigmented or surface-coloured leather in cars, such as leather seats but can be also used on furniture, jackets and handbags.
COLOURLOCK recommend that new leather should be treated with our Leather Shield within the first three years to protect it against traces of wear and abrasion, as well as discolouration from clothing.
Application areas: New pigmented or surface-coloured leather in cars, such as leather seats but can be also used on furniture, jackets and handbags. Do not use on porous leathers, suede or nubuck.
Soiled leather should be thoroughly cleaned in advance. This prevents the dirt sticking to the leather when applying COLOURLOCK Leather Shield. Our COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaning Brush effectively removes ingrained dirt (use circular motion in all directions for better results).
New leather should be treated with our COLOURLOCK Leather Shield within the first three years to protect it against traces of wear and abrasion, as well as discolouration from clothing (dye transfer). The driver’s seat (entry bolsters of sports seats and high support cushions) usually begin showing typical signs of wear within the first three years. Leather Shield will prevent this. Treat the driver’s seat every three months, the rest of the leather every six to twelve months. Additionally, steering wheels, armrests and shift knobs often suffer from hand sweat so avoid grease- or oil-based leather care. Instead these areas (except those that are old and dry) should be protected using COLOURLOCK Leather Shield.
The amount is usually sufficient to treat a steering wheel, small parts or the most heavily strained entry bolsters several times. The Cleaner should only be applied to soiled areas.
Always test all products first on a hidden area in case they affect the colour.
COLOURLOCK Leather Cleaner
The Leather Cleaner comes in a foam dispenser bottle. Foams clean the leather more efficiently than liquid agents, the consumption is considerably smaller, and the leather does not become wet, which could otherwise become hard after drying.
The Leather Cleaner gently cleans the leather. Apply some foam on the Cleaning Sponge and proceed with cleaning. Remove dirty foam residue with a slightly moistened cloth.
The COLOURLOCK Leather Shield provides protection for heavily-strained leather surfaces. The Shield prevents rapid wear and discolouration from clothing. Wet a terry cloth slightly with Leather Shield and treat the strained areas every three months.
These products are also suitable for “Cool Leather/SRT (SunReflective Technology) Leather”!
