This professional grade DIY clear coat lacquer leather finish is intended to lock in the colour once it has been applied to the surface of leather. It also feels soft and natural on the leather, without making it seem or look artificial. In reality, it significantly improves the touch and texture of leather, resulting in a very smooth, soft, silky feel that is very natural and so realistic that you won't be able to tell them apart.
The topcoat Lacquer Leather Finish is an excellent complement to produced antique polished leathers. It's an excellent do-it-yourself option especially where the coloured finish is rubbed off, providing a two-tone effect coloured look and finish.
Two tone leather, antique finish leathers and chesterfield leather finishes are prone to wearing off the topcoat finish over time, this is best re applied to protect the painted finishes applied in the making of the leather hides.
On average clear coat leather finish lasts around 2 to 5 years on the surface depending how its cared for and what clothing you wear, jeans can cause the topcoat sealer to wear away quicker so re coating may be required in 2 to 3 years.
The beauty of these leather sealers, compared to others, they can be mixed together gaining any sheen level you desire, from adding a small amount of gloss to a matt leather lacquer, to making a 50 – 50 mix to make a satin, to making a mixture of 70%satin and 30% matt to give you a sheen level that’s just below a satin finish. Apply a new layer of clear coat lacquer is a great way of putting some life back into your leather. Rather than complicate issues we have left these lacquer sealers as standard that tanners use Gloss, Satin and Matt, this way you create any sheen level you require even blending into older worn leather to make it look original on antique leathers.
