Leather gets accidentally damaged, it wears, creases and cracks appear, unsightly scuffs, scratches and rubbing wear all catch your eye every day, a Liquid Leather 65ml Scuffmaster colour dye kit will cover these marks and conceal them
ScuffMaster dyes are water based “new generation” leather dyes which are easy to apply, safe to use and transport. They require no separate top coat sealant, are permanent and will not transfer to wet or dry clothing. They are used by international furniture and car seat manufacturers, airlines and retailer’s service technicians, upholsterers, car and marine trimmers within the UK and around the world.
The standard boxed Scuffmaster kit contains 65ml of concentrated dye, which, when diluted with water will colour in all the creases and cracks on a large car, or re-colour one base car seat. All our colours are mixed to the manufacturer’s original new leather. But leather fades and to combat this problem, a 65ml Scuffmaster kit contains 2 x 5ml colour toners. By adding tiny amounts of a toner, you can tint the main colour to allow for this fading/discolouring. Leather can also become shiny with use. A 5ml gloss enhancer is also included in the kit, complete with 2 foam applicators and an instruction card. Additional instructions are included in our mail order packages. This 65ml kit is ideal for re-colouring leather steering wheels.
Larger individual bottles of Scuffmaster leather dyes can be purchased for re-colouring larger areas. 250ml, will re-colour the front of 2 average seats, 500ml for the front of 4 seats and a litre for a whole car, including door panels. A Rolls-Royce in poor condition may need a litre and a half of dye.
These bottles are available on there own or in a Re-Colouring Kit which contains all the preparation materials you will need to produce a long lasting durable finish. We strongly advise that the leather is prepared correctly before the dye is applied. We also offer a Hobby Spray Gun, this is a simple tool which is a quarter pint glass jar onto which an aerosol power unit attaches. Pour filtered diluted dye into the jar, press the aerosol top and it sprays.
TO REPAIR SCRATCHES AND MINOR CUTS: Use Scuff Master Kit, concentrated and toner if necessary, fill the scratch with dye using a tooth pick or split match, wipe off excess dye from the sides of the scratch, allow to dry, then "colour wash" if necessary (described below)
COLOUR RUB OFF AND SCUFFS: Apply Scuff Master Dye, neat after toning and dab onto the damaged area with the foam provided, repeat if necessary, then "colour wash" to blend in.
CREASES AND CRACKS: We do NOT want to fill in the cracks with dye as this will form a wedge and increase the damage. We need to recolour the brown or grey leather that shows within the cracks. Clean the leather thoroughly with GT12, wipe out residue with a wet cloth and leave to thoroughly dry. Dilute Scuff Master with 10% water and rub into cracks, leave from 60 seconds to a couple of minutes (dependent on hot conditions) and wipe off with a damp cloth: this process we call "COLOUR WASHING", the dye will remain in the cracks but come off the good leather.
Leave all repairs 24 hours before conditioning with GT11. Water based Scuff Master does not attack stitching, does not dry out leather and does not smell of cellulose thinners.
'ScuffMaster Colourwash" is a treatment NOT a product, to carry out a "colourwash treatment" you should order 1 x GT12, 1 x GT11 and 1 x Scuffmaster kit'
