first time I used your product was on a 1997 Camaro SS with a
white leather interior. The interior had been exposed to the weather
for an extended period of time, and no matter how hard I cleaned
it, it simply wouldn't come clean (mold and discoloration were
deep in the leather). I found ColorBond at a local auto supply
store in white and decided to give it a try. After prepping the
seats and removing them from the car, I followed the directions
and applied a few coats of ColorBond. The result was nothing short
of amazing! In fact, when I put the vehicle up for sale the next
week, I had multiple offers from others to buy my seats - if only
they had known what they looked like initially. I've used multiple
competitor products over the years (SEM, Duplicolor), and they
don't come close (nor will they work on leather).

up two sections of FAA-approved vinyl fabric ... I'm not a chemist
or a professional upholstery person, but I do know when a product
is easy to use ... I pulled, scrunched, jumped on, beat them on
the ground, tied them in knots and gave them enough punishment to
replicate many years of being in use in an aircraft - even in the
luggage compartment. Both pieces of aircraft-approved vinyl still
looked brand new (not a scratch, not a chip)... One of my pilot
friends, after he saw the successful tests I'd made with the product,
said he'd be doing over the interior of his classic taildragger
in the same color. Colorbond really works!"

dries to the tough in 45 seconds and is fully cured within 10 minutes.
Sure enough we could paw the coating without disturbing it almost
immediately after application. The best results are obtained by
using steady, overlapping strokes ... Even after several coats,
the original grain pattern of the seatback is still clearly visible.
The cushion, which had been previously recovered with non-OE smooth
vinyl, took the coating without runs or sags. ... We pushed, pinched,
and scratched at the coating but couldn't do it harm."

After riding the XR in good weather and bad for nearly a month,
the surface neither stained our pants nor wore off - even after
numerous crashes. It shined up well after each use, showing no signs
of fading or cracking - amazing!"

The product is a molecular bonding component that (as its description
and name imply) actually penetrates and becomes one with the molecules
of material it's applied on. This means that when properly applied,
Colorbond won't crack, peel, or rub off, as the color becomes part
of the surface!
Too good to be
true, you say? Well that's what we thought - that is, until we
tried it ourselves! We tested it out on a scrap piece of leather
(following the prep and application instructions), and then did
our best to get it to crack, chip, or peel. Well, despite our
best efforts (including a tug-o-war with the dog) we failed and

The results were excellent ... Short of Sandpapering off the surface
we haven't found anything that makes the treated surface behave
differently than a new piece of vinyl."
