What's special about GTECHNIQ L1 Leather Guard?
GTECHNIQ L1 Leather Guard offers the best of its type protection against friction and staining. The friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas. The anti stain function is particularly worthwhile on light coloured leathers that are typically stained by dark coloured fabrics such as indigo jeans.
Many leather products market themselves on how they feed leather. In fact your car's leather seats are first coated with a very fine emulsion to give them the desired colour and then a clear coat. So for best longevity you should be keeping that coating as well protected as possible which is exactly what L1 does. These same companies would also have you believe you should feed your car's acrylic or polyester urethane paint finish with olive, cantaloupe, sunflower and coconut oils...!
How do I get the best from this product?
For best results apply to new or recently recoloured leather. For used leather first clean using a 1:20 dilution of GTECHNIQ W2 Universal Cleaner, allow to dry and then coat with a thin layer of L1. Allow the product to dry for 30 minutes before use.
For the very best results clean and then reapply a coat of L1 on high wear areas every 3 months and for less stressed leather every 6 months.
