A thin liquid used for strengthening heavily worn or cracked leather

  • Soaks deep into fibres
  • Repairs minor scuffs
  • Extremely flexible
  • Helps restore heavy cracking

Leather Binder is a thin liquid filler that can be used to strengthen the weakened fibre structure of leather that is heavily worn or cracked.

It can also be used on small imperfections in the leather such as scuffs and scratches, allowing the leather to be sanded smooth.

The Binder soaks deep into the leather fibres holding them tightly together creating a stronger leather structure. This stronger structure greatly improves the tensile strength of the leather, which makes repairing leather easier and gives longer lasting results.  Great to use before Leather Repair Paint.

Why is this important?

Using the Binder gives you the confidence that when you make a repair you know it will last. For instance, if you just used the flexfil you would get a great repair but it might not last. Not because the flexifil isn’t good enough, but because the leather beneath it is weak – it is the leather that might tear open, not the filler. By using the Leather Binder first, you guarantee yourself a much longer lasting repair.

The Leather Binder also makes sanding worn leather possible. By strengthening the fibres, you can sand leather down that would otherwise have gotten worse as you sanded it.

Leather Binder Coverage and Shelf Life

Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Store between 8°C and 30°.

Once opened, use within 1 year.

For Light to Heavy Cracking:

The Leather Binder should be applied to the affected areas with a sponge. It should be applied with pressure to allow the product to soak into the fibre structure. Leave the Binder to dry; this can be sped up with the use of a hairdryer.

Apply a further three coats in the same way. It is important to use pressure when applying the Leather Binder for the first four coats, this will ensure that the product soaks deep into the network of fibres and hold them tight together which will create a much stronger base for a long-lasting repair.

You will notice as the Leather Binder soaks in, it will cause the absorbent areas to darken. At this stage, the surface can be sanded with wet and dry sandpaper, or for best results, a sanding pad to smooth out any raised or rough areas. You should always remove any dust caused from the sanding action with a cloth dampened in Alcohol Cleaner.

Several more coats of Leather Binder should then be applied; this time by gently wiping it over the cracks rather than applying pressure. Again, drying between coats. Applying the product in this gentle manor will allow it to build up in the damaged areas and start to fill out the cracks. Numerous coats can be applied in this way to achieve the desired fill level.

Depending on the severity and depth of the cracks, they can be filled out with the Leather Binder alone. However deep cracks will be better being repaired using Flexifil.


Why is the Leather Binder an important step in repairing damaged leather?

The fibre structure within the leather is what gives leather its strength. When leather becomes damaged, this fibre structure becomes weaker which may then lead to rips and tears. By applying the Binder first, it binds the loose fibres back together, making a much stronger base for the filler to sit on. If this step is missed out, the fibres beneath the filler will still be weak and may tear under the repaired area.

Do I have to use the Binder before repairing leather with one of the fillers?

No, it does not have to be used, however it is highly recommended as it greatly improves the strength of the leather, before applying the filler. This means that your repair will last a lot longer by using the Binder first.

I have a hole in my leather, do I still need to use the Binder?

If the hole is due to wear and tear then yes, we would recommend using the Leather Binder, however if the hole has been caused by a burn or something sharp, the fibre structure is  more than likely still intact and therefore the Binder is not so important.

Just perfect
Judy Foote, 16 November
Goes on very easily – don’t need much. Still have another coat to do. Does leave a bit of a shine on the leather.
Alan Parr, 16 September
This product certainly worked binding the leather fibres together. The leather is still flexible.
