Leather Wash up is a product that has been studied and improved over the years. It has adopted the most advanced technologies and raw materials available. To make it even more effective special surfactants were added into the formulation, which guarantees an excellent wash up/vintage effect.
The product has a slightly whitish liquid appearance and a pungent smell. It has been studied to be applied after the colouring phase of the leather surface with the Maxcraft Leather Dye.
The wash up effect immediately acts by partially removing the colour on the leather surface. This allows a very particular and unique effect. The final result depends on the quantity of the product applied and on the technique used.
Once applied, the product dries quickly (5-10 minutes, depending on the room temperature) and above it you can complete the finish by with recolouring it or using other products such as Leather Dye Fixative, Leather Gloss Finish and Leather Dye Conditioner.
The ammonia and the surfactants present in the formulation work by partially removing the colour, avoiding at the same time to modify the structure, the touch and the softness of the leather. Rest assured your leather will remain soft and supple.
The wash up effect is also used in the recolouring processes of finished leathers, in fact its characteristics allow to remove part of the coloured surface before proceeding with the recolouring phase.
