Will it stiffen the area?

In the world of fillers, this product is classed as 'flexible'. That means that isn't stiff and brittle and can flex and stretch with a substrate that needs to flex and stretch; that is, leather. For most jobs, any stiffening effect is minor and temporary. More firming may occur on jobs where a lot of filler is used.  

Adhesion

There are universal 'laws' to adhesion. Best results occur when the surface is free of loose particles, keyed by sanding, clean, dry, free of oils, silicones, waxes or any other factor that inhibits a strong bond. 

 

This product/kit is suitable for use on most leathers.

To conceal repairs made with leather filler and/or glue, refinish (recolour) the area with the leather paint system available in our Repair & Recolour Kits. Note that leather dyes are generally not suitable for covering leather repairs as they are transparent stains that do not provide coverage.

If your leather is pigmented (painted/coated) most repairs can be fully covered, concealed and well blended making them invisible or at least more discreet than before.

Repairs to waxed, aniline or semi-aniline leathers can be more difficult to blend and conceal due to the specialist nature of the coatings. Sometimes, a compromise on all priorities is the best possible outcome.

Glue : Applies to Glue and Filler & Glue Kit

20gm: A patch of cat scratches, a few handbag repairs, several small tears

50gm: Lots of minor fixings and repairs

Filler : Applies to Filler, Filler & Glue Kit and Repair & Recolour Kits

20gm: A patch of cat scratches, a 30cm2 - 40cm2 area of delamination, a few small tears

50gm: 1-3 demainated cushion tops, lots of small scuffs and tears

250gm: 3-5 delaminated seat cushions, armrests

Coverage estimates are approximate. Your job may require more or less product.

1) Prepare the surface thoroughly before attempting to glue. Use Spot & Prep (No.4) and a scrubbing brush to remove any surface soiling, oils, waxes or silicones that might prevent good adhesion. Allow to dry.

2) Sand to remove any loose particles, smooth textural irregularities and key the surface.

Glue (Skip if no gluing is needed. Go to Step 8)

3) Apply glue to the edges or surfaces you wish to join. Allow the glue to go tacky (a few minutes)

4) Apply a second smear of glue over the first then bring the edges or surfaces together.

5) Wipe away any excess glue from the surface.

6) Hold together until the glue cures. This can be done by hand, using masking tape or by applying weights. A hair dryer can be used to speed drying.

7) Once the glue has cured, it can be sanded. More glue can be applied if needed.

Filler

8) Using a palette knife or similar scraping tool, lay in/on thin layers of filler (around 1ml depth). Aim for neat filling to minimise the amount of sanding needed.

9) Allow complete drying of each layer. This is critical to a successful job.

10) Continue to apply thin layers of filler until the depth of the scratch, scuff or surface damage has been filled and the surface is level or you've achieved the level of filling you require.

11) Around 10% Leather Paint and/or Dye can be added to the last couple of coats of filler. Tinted filler can be easier to cover when refinishing.

12) Filler can be applied using a stippling technique. This can render a leather grain look which may help your repair to blend in more effectively.

13) Lightly sand to render the final surface

14) Refinish (recolour) the repair site using a Repair & Recolour Kit

Good foundations

Very useful product

I have some Julius Marlow shoes, and there are strips of leather on the heel that have lifted because the heel compresses and pushes them out (it's a poor design). The cobbler told me he couldn't do anything. I cut off some of this leather and filled the gap with the surface filler, then sanded back and polished the heel, and it has come up a treat.
