Leather Care

Leather Care

The subject of leather care is complex. There are many different kings of leather, of various ages, in many different conditions and in many fields of use. This is why there is no universal care product which can be considered 'best' within every kind of leather, field of use or age etc. A product best for one of these categories must be chosen in order to considerably lengthen a leathers skins lifespan for many years, with regular care.

It is important to note that regular, sparing treatment of leather is better than a seldom and excessive treatment. You must always clean leather before applying care product to avoid sealing in the dirt/soiling.

Newgate Online offers specialist leather care products from two different sources:

  1. Lederzentrum Gmbh (under their Colourlock brand name)
  2. BLC Leather Technology Centre

Lederzentrum (German for Leather Centre) are the premier leather care specialist in Germany. Under their Colourlock brand name, Lederzentrum offer a premium range of products designed for leather cleaning, protection and preserving. The Colourlock products available through Newgate Online:

Description of each of the Colourlock products:
 
The mild cleaner is an effective but gentle cleaner for most leather surfaces/all full-grain and coated leathers. The mild cleaner is just that, it is not harsh and does not attack the leather. Not for absorbant leather such as suedes or nubuck. Always test on an unseen area before proceeding!
The mild leather cleaner is the first choice for all 'normally' soiled pigmented napa leathers before a care treatment - you must always clean a leather surface before applying a care treatment so as not to seal in dirt/soiling. The mild cleaner is also the ideal workshop cleaners for use before the re-colouring of soiled/worn pigmented napa leathers.
 
The strong cleaner is a concentrated cleaner for deeply soiled full-grain and coated leathers. Not for absorbant leather such as suedes or nubuck. Always test on an unseen area before proceeding!
Even soiling deep in the leather grain will be dissolved and removed with the correct use of the strong leather cleaner. the ideal cleaner for deeply soiled leathers/pigmented napa leathers. 
 
The leather protector is a complex care cream for the most commonly known pigmented napa leathers. Not for absorbant leather such as suedes or nubuck.
Leather Protector contains UV filters, antioxidants, wear-protectors and the required conditioners. The leather stays soft and comfortable and the antioxidants stop the disintegration process of the leather through regular use. The main use for Leather Protector is furniture and automotive leather of any age.
 
The elephant leather preserver is a purely synthetic, acid free leather wax and an ideal treatment for antique leathers plus leathers constantly exposed to harsh conditions. The wax has a strong waterpoofing action and prevents mildew growth, prevents threat-rot, revives faded dyes and gold embossing. A common treatment for older convertable cars with leather seats and leather seating and surfaces on boats, this formula has been used for many years by European museums for preserving and restoring stiff or old leather, hence the name of the product. Also can be used on quality handbags, suitcases, saddles and shoes.
