DESCRIPTION: A water-borne penetrating dye for coloring semi-aniline 2008 - 2014 King Ranch leather. Easily colors the front two seats. For the back seats, add another 8 oz. of color.
FEATURES: Easy to apply. Original look & feel.
Remove stains as much as possible. Spray a wet coat with (TC) Triclean Prep Cleaner over the entire area. Use a soft nylon brush to lightly scrub clean. Blot dry with a clean lint free towel or paper towel. Allow to dry completely. Use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process. Lightly sand the leather with #600 sandpaper. This will help to break the surface coating and allow penetration (always sand before using color #SAC-707).
Check the leathers ability for penetration by placing a drop of water on several areas. Wait for minute, if the water leaves a dark circle, then the leather will accept aniline dye. If the water beads up with no dark circle, a second or third cleaning is required.
APPLICATION: Semi-aniline leather finish.
Color: SAC-707 Chaparrel.
This color has a semi-aniline finish. A light topcoat protective clear is applied by the factory over the color to help resist staining.
After prep cleaning, a light sanding with #600 sandpaper is required to remove the protective topcoat.
1) Check color match. Mix 2% crosslinker (#SL-7) into the semi-aniline dye color.

3) Allow to dry. A hair dryer may be used to speed drying.
