Liquid Leather Professional Leather & Vinyl Repair Kit
Professionals make fast, easy repairs to leather, vinyl and naugahyde because of the special heat tool in their kit. This same tool is now available to you in this leather repair kit. You can repair holes, rips, tears and burns in minutes.
The color compound is applied into the damaged spot, covered with a grain texture paper, and the paper is heated with the special electric heat tool in your kit. When cool, the grain paper is peeled off and repair is finished
You are able to match the color you need from the 7 different color compounds, just follow the included color-matching instructions.
You can repair auto and boat seats, car tops, luggage, dashboards, office furniture, leather jackets... anything made from genuine leather, vinyl, or naugahyde.Kit contains:
- 7 color compounds (white, black, red, yellow, blue, brown and green)
- Graining papers
- Electric heating iron
- Sub patch material and adhesive
STEP 1 - Prepare the damaged area:
Trim off any loose threads or damaged pieces of vinyl or leather. Clean the damaged area with a conventional non soapy cleaner. Alcohol is a good cleaner and works well removing oily residue.
STEP 2 - Provide Support with backing fabric/Fill in Damage (if needed, backing fabric included):
Cut it slightly larger than the damaged area and insert it into and under the damage. If there is a depression under the damaged, fill it in with cotton. This will support the repair job and it provides a base for the repair compound. Note: Very small (less than ¼ inch) cuts, burns or holes do not require backing fabric.
For deep damages: Use the spatula to apply Vinyl Adhesive into the damage area until surface is level. (Note: The Vinyl Adhesive will shrink when it dries, leaving a slight void, which is then filled in with the color repair compound.)
For rips or tears:
Use the spatula to apply the Vinyl Adhesive under both edges and center to hold backing fabric in place. Allow adhesive to fully dry, may take up to 24 hours.
STEP 3 - Mix the color repair compound:
Use the spatula and thoroughly mix color. If color matching, use the spatula and transfer the color(s) into the empty mixing bottle. Mix color thoroughly. For color matching assistance, refer to the reverse side of this page. Wipe off spatula with a paper towel. For repairing hard surfaces: Slowly stir in Powder Hardener into the color until the repair compound becomes thick. (When heat is applied, the compound will create a tough, hard finish similar to a dashboard or vinyl top.)
STEP 4 - Apply color repair compound:
Now, the damaged area should be level to the undamaged area. Use the spatula and apply the repair compound in a thin layer, into and across the damaged area. For a quality repair job, smooth and even application is very important. Remove any excess repair compound from around the damaged area with a paper towel.
STEP 5 - Grain Texture (Reusable) Release Paper:
Mark an X in the middle of the chosen grain paper. Place that X right over the colored repair compound. (The pattern will transfer onto the repair after it is cured.)
STEP 6 - Heat Curing Repair Compound:
The application of heat is the most important part of the repair process! Heat is the agent that cures the repair compound, turning it into a vinyl-leather like material. Insufficient heat will result in a weak repair. Excessive heat can burn the grain paper and discolor the repair.
*It is essential that you do a practice repair on the enclosed piece of practice vinyl to get familiar with the technique.
Plug in the electric mini iron. Allow 4-5 minutes for iron to heat up. (Do not leave unattended and Never allow iron directly touch the vinyl.)
After the tool is heated, immediately place the mini heat iron on the X on the grain paper and move it in a slow, circular motion for 90 seconds. When you take it off, the grain paper should feel very hot.Allow the grain paper to cool for about 2 minutes. Slowly remove grain paper off of repair.*If you notice that the repair compound is still wet, place the grain paper back down and heat it again. If there are any under-filled areas, refill them with the colored repair compound, cover it with the grain paper and heat again. Repeat as needed for best results.

I was very concerned that I would not be able to repair a rip that was right in the middle of my leather couch. This kit was amazing, and the small line that shows, blends perfectly with the natural aging of my couch!
Just received the kit on Oct. 12.
Have not done repair yet as I have to have my
undivided time to do it. I have read up on how todo the repair and I feel that I should have no problem with it.
Thank you for your service
The kit came in no time and looked as though it was in great shape. However, I was the problem. I ordered the wrong kit - I wanted the kit without the hot repair kit. My husband has told me that it will not cure correctly and may end up sticky after correctling the problems. I have not opened it. The entire kit is still glued shut. Please let me know what I have to do to return/exchange the kit so that I may get the cat scratches on the vinyl chair corrected. Not buying a cat in the first place would have helped but it is too late for that!
Than you. John Butler
I have been using LeatherWorld products for years and have been impressed with the simplicity and excellent results obtained with their products. The web based color match tool really made the matching simple.
Worked well. Practicing is essential.
I had a small puncture hole so I only had to use the vinyl adhesive, not the compound. Let it dry thoroughly then put dye on top.
I ordered it on Friday and had it on Monday. Product worked great and was easy to do with the included instructions.
I was pleasantly surprised. If you follow the directions, practice and then attempt the repair, the kit works flawlessly. only thing dicey is the color match. Be patient. Will use again.
I've only done a couple test runs but am quite satisfied with the results. The black doesn't have the gloss of my seats and there is no graining paper for just a smooth leather.
