Our Graining Mat with Additive is used to reproduce an impression of the grain finish of the leather after the damaged area has been filled. This is a twin tube system, one tube contains liquid latex the other a hardener. When installed in the gun and fitted with a special “curly whirly” nozzle, both mix together at the correct rate as they descend the tube. Apply to the area next to the damage, dry with hairdryer and peel off. A reverse impression of the leather grain is in the mat, which can then be used to put the leather grain into your filler.
Note: It is important to orientate the patch in the same direction as the desired repair and to make the patch as thin as possible. If the patch is too thick, it can be difficult to get enough heat through it when using the welding iron.
