Water Repellent (No.23)
This is a flexible, breathable water repellent for all types of leather.
- Helps to minimise the absorption of water spills and splashes
- Easy to apply
- Low sheen finish
- Invisible, soft, flexible and durable

- Use in conjunction with Protect (No.3) for maximum water, soiling and UV protection
- Helps to prevent marks and stains
- Suitable for furnishings, cars, fabrics, apparel and footwear
Apply to clean leather. Spray directly onto the leather or pour onto a cloth and wipe over one area at a time. Allow drying then apply a second coat (approximately 30 mins to 2 hours). Allow to dry. Wait 1 days before using if possible.
This coating has good rub resistance which means that it wears well with normal use and appropriate care. On average, the reapplication schedule is around 3 months. Where usage is infrequent, for example, car back seats that are rarely used, reapplication may only be needed after 12 months or longer. The drivers seat may benefit from more frequent applications.
For leather jackets and footwear
Ideal for protecting leather that may get wet often, such as motor-cycle jackets and footwear.
Protection for anilines
Unfinished leathers like nubuck, suede and aniline can be particularly vulnerable to spills that become permanent stains. Water Repellent (No.23) helps to slow, minimise or prevent water from penetrating leather. This can mean a reduced risk of stains occurring. As always, test in an inconspicuous area first and ensure your leather is dry before applying.
For maximum all-round protection
To give your leather full protection, use Water Repellant (No.23) under Protect (No.3). The combined benefits of these formulations will deliver maximum water, soiling, stain, and UV protection whilst also making cleaning easier.
