Leather & Vinyl Protector

Restores natural oils and luster.

With leather and vinyl, it is very important to replace essential oils that are removed naturally during the cleaning process. Tremendous care and decades of experience went into developing our protector. It’s easily applied with a damp sponge and instantly restores beauty and luster back to the surface.

Whilst our fabrics are designed to be easily cleaned, it is not self-cleaning and requires a regular maintenance regime to extend the life of the fitout.  Most spills and stains can easily be cleaned with a towel.  Just wipe up the spills with a clean cloth.

Both MAT 9 (vinyl and PU fabrics) & MAT 13 (Silica) are bleach cleanable with a solution of bleach and water.  It is important to follow the concentration recommendation and further ensure you rinse any residue.

Fabric Care MAT 13
  • Silica can be cleaned very simply with just a damp cloth.

We recommended the following cleaning procedures for various types of spills:

  • Step 1: Clean affected areas with a damp cloth.
  • Step 2: Virtually all stains can be removed using only the procedure explained in Step 1; however, if desired, Step 1 can be followed by additional cleaning using soap and water, 4 parts water / 1 part bleach solution, or any solvent-based cleaning agent without causing harm to the surface of Silica or its performance attributes. Thoroughly rinse with water.

Always test in an inconspicuous area first. In some instances not all stains can be completely removed.
