1. Shake bottle well
2. Squeeze the fibre binder onto a sponge
3. Dab onto areas that are fibrous areas that require strengthening.
4. Allow to dry naturally
5. Your item is Now ready for sanding and colorant application
Fibre binder only requires one or two coats to work, the initial coating has to be pushed into the fibres or cracking to ensure it soaks in, making sure you have a generous amount of the leather repair binder on your sponge to do this, then while the surface is still wet apply a second generous coating but this time stipple this on rather than pushing this onto the fibres this will ensure its coating the full area and sealed the surface,
Due to the exposed fibres the liquid leather repair binder will darken the fibres as it soaks in, this is normal shows the binder is working as it should, once this has dried which can be left on its own to dry which may take around 30 minutes or you can use a hair drier and speed up the drying process and this can be dried this way with 5 minutes.
With this type of filler drying is always carried out using a hairdryer, or left to dry at room temperature, as it air cures its best to keep the lids closed at all times to avoid this liquid leather binder filler from drying up.
Once the filler is full cured and the exposed leather fibres are bonded back together again the area can be sanded using a 280-grit foam sanding pad, foam sanding pads are far safer for leather compared to general sandpaper.
When you sand over wipe the area down carefully with a terry towel cloth with a small amount of alcohol cleaner on it to wipe away any dust from sanding, once this has been done, you then start to use the filler required either the Heavy Filler or the Flexi Filler compounds. Then colour as normal.
Cannot be grained with a grain matt or heat cured with a heat iron.
The thicker you apply the longer it will take to dry, but if applied thinly then drying times are around five to ten minutes.
