How to rub and restore your leather like new!

To use this product, wash the area having the Permi Rub applied well with Leather Prep and lightly sand with 400g sandpaper feathering out to 600g. 

Using a sponge, apply the Permi Rub in an even, thin layer to start with and allow to dry. Repeat until the area is repaired to your liking. Best to recolour the complete panel one the repair area is completed to blend the colour if its not quite correct.

Touch dry in around 30 minuets but allow to completely dry for 24hrs before using.

*Adhesion on oil soaked areas may be an issue. As always, for a permeant repair we recommend leather panel replacements in these areas.

    I highly recommend Couchguard, their products are quality that I’ve proven over time.
    Our corner leather lounge was in great condition other than scratches and a hole, so I decided to repair it instead of spending thousands $ on a new lounge! Its been over a year since I painted my leather lounge with a few coats of Permi Rub in the same colour, satin black. It hasn’t cracked or peeled, just looks just the same since I painted it, I’m impressed! The lounge has been well used since painting, and is wiped every week at least with leather wipes as it’s undercover in the shade on our patio.
    The painting preparation as detailed on the website is crucial. I watched the video on how to use the products, easy! I bought a kit which gave me everything I needed, I bought extra Permi Rub because it was a large lounge and I wanted to do a few coats. I filled the scratches and holes, sanded, and used a regular size, fine, soft professional paintbrush putting on 1 generous but not heavy coat as it was hot weather was drying too quickly. Then 2 more coats on seats and arms.
    Have a go, save $$$

    I recently purchased PermiRub to see if I could inject some new life into our old leather lounge that had been sitting in storage. I wasn’t sure what kind of a result I was going to get because I really thought the lounge was beyond help. The product was easy to use and the results are absolutely amazing. The lounge looks near new again. I could not have imagined there could possible be this much improvement in the colour, texture and overall appearance of our lounge suite. I purchased 2 tubs so I could match the colour as closely as possible. I would definitely recommend this product.

    I recently purchased a jar of your PermiRub Leather Colour Restorer – amazing product! Based on my successful first time use on a lounge.

A. Simply click or tap on the "In The Box" tab on the products page. Thats the Leather Repair Kits page.

A. This is common with this type of leather. It is meant to develop the worn look over time. So what ever you spill or mark it with will add character to the leather surface. This includes body and hair oils. The idea of the care kit is to clean the leather surface before replenishing the oils and waxes back into the leather hide to prevent it from drying out.

No. You can't use leather filler or our Leather Repair Resin and leather dye together. The Leather Dye is alcohol based so it will soften the filler or resin. If you have an aniline leather, then no filler just dye. If you have a finished / pigmented leather then you can use the resin or filler and leather colour, which is leather paint.

You can’t repair Aniline Leather like you can a Finished / Pigmented Leather. Once you sand and apply Leather Filler to an Aniline Leather it then becomes a Finished / Pigmented leather and needs Leather Paint to cover the filler. Your not going to replicate that finish with Leather Paint.

You can rub Leather Dye into your Aniline Leather (once prepped with Leather Prep) but you can't fill and sand the cracking. Dye takes on the colour is being applied to. So where there is colour now or a darker spot this will keep getting dark so the finish will be uneven. Thats how Aniline is.

We say our Leather Dye is for leather but its up to you what you want to use it on.

Yes. You can use the Comprehensive Leather Care kit on all coloured leathers and not just white. This kit is designed for pigmented and finished leathers.

Yes and No. Not all leather is repairable as such. Generally the seating areas along with the arm and headrest areas are damaged from body oils, perspiration etc. The leather has absorbed these contaminates over the years so getting a permeant repair is near impossible. Adhesion may / will be an issue or those areas will crack again with little use.

You may also want to look at using our Leather Repair Resin if you don't want to do leather panel replacements.

If you do go ahead and repair badly damaged areas and the repairs fail, please don't blame our products when this happens.

No. You would need 3 litres or the 3lt kit for a 5 seater modular, no chaise. You'll also find an "Coverage Guide Ideal For..." under each kit listed in the "In The Box" tab. If you are ordering a 3lt kit and your modular has a chaise or is extra large you will need to purchase the additional 1lt Leather Colour
