Break through Technology! Colourlock Leather Shield Nano Protector® is a unique lotion, designed to protect and reduce friction damage on high contact areas, (leading edges on car seats, seat, arm and headrest areas on furniture) and also minimise and inhibit colour and dye transfer from clothing and textiles onto leather and vinyl surfaces.
It achieves this by modifying the surface of the top coat polymers with tiny (100 nanometre) particles and additives, buffering the surface against friction damage and clothing dyes.
Developed in Germany for the auto and furniture industries, and used by many world-leading automakers and furniture manufacturers throughout Europe, Asia and the USA. Colourlock Leather Shield® is ideally suited for use on car seats, furniture, leather clothing and bags.
Available in 200ml bottles.
Protect your leather from staining and friction damage with Colourlock Leather Shield Protector
Having problems with stains on leather sofa, car seat, bags or accessories?
Want to protect your new leather furniture or the leather interior in your new car?
Colourlock Leather Shield Protector offers an easy and safe way to prevent dye or colour staining from materials like denim and newsprint from penetrating the surface of leather and also helps to reduce wear and tear on leather surfaces.
Colourlock Leather Shield Protector is NOT a leather cleaner – use it BEFORE the leather surface gets dirty or damaged and AFTER CLEANING to create a protective barrier and reduce soiling and damage.
This does not mean that cleaning becomes unnecessary, but it will be more effective and cleaning products can be less aggressive and still achieve good results. Leather Shield Protector is a leather care product that will need to be re-applied on a regular basis and after any cleaning process.
As with all leather care products applied to leather or any other material, the Leather Shield Protector must be pre-tested in an inconspicuous area. Apply with a clean lint-free cloth, gently wiping the leather protection cream over a clean, dust-free surface with circular movements to ensure an even coverage of the whole surface.
Where to use Colourlock Leather Shield Protector?
Colourlock Leather Shield Protector can be used on any leather (except suede and nubuck), especially useful on lighter coloured leather where staining is more visual. Use in high contact areas, seat cushions, arms, car seats. Colourlock Leather Shield Protector can also be used on vinyls.
How to use Colourlock Leather Shield Protector?
Always test on a small area first. Shake well before use. Apply lightly across the surface area with a lint free cloth and allow to dry. Re-apply every 3 months, car interiors and leather sofas may require more frequent application. Keep out of reach of children.
Denim and dye staining on leather costing millions in claims
Denim staining on leather and coated fabrics is a multi- million pound problem for a range of industries including the automotive, upholstery and fashion sectors.
The British Leather Council has seen a significant increase in the number of clients’ products affected by denim staining especially on lighter coloured leathers where staining from dark coloured jeans is more visually prominent.
Denim staining can occur within minutes of contact, not only is it unsightly but it can be extremely challenging to remove.
The level of product returns and customer complaints is unknown but denim staining on leather is a global problem regularly affecting products such as leather car interiors, upholstery, handbags, accessories and footwear. Ultimately any leather product which comes into contact with denim is a potential target.
Denim staining is a problem for all levels of the leather supply chain from leather manufacturers through to retailers. The cost and time involved in replacing products is significant, understanding why denim staining occurs and ways to prevent denim staining should be understood at all levels of the leather supply chain.
