Lexol Leather Conditioner
The oils in Lexol have been modified to facilitate effective distribution of microscopically fine oil droplets which can be more readily absorbed into the leather fibers than the comparatively large droplets typical of raw oils or less fine emulsions. Lexol’s smaller oil droplets combine with the fibers, because of their affinity or adherence that is lacking with other oils. Thus the modified oils in Lexol are kept under control and are retained in the area of application. In this way, Lexol is able to nourish the leather and its fibers while protecting against migration, or seepage, into adjacent materials or surfaces.
Many leather dressings utilize chemical solvents in order to facilitate penetration of oils into the leather. Such solvents can lead to ”bleeding” or migrating onto adjacent materials, causing discoloration or other damage. In addition, such chemical solvents may be flammable, irritating or toxic.
Lexol does not contain any chemical solvents. As an aqueous emulsion, it achieves several objectives: (1) fiber penetration and nourishment; (2) absorption and retention in the leather; (3) control of migration or seepage. Unlike most organic solvents, Lexol is nonflammable, odorless, non-toxic and non-sensitizing to the skin. Also, Lexol does not impart a greasy or tacky feel to the surface of the leather.
Although Lexol is widely accepted as a treatment for the more common vegetable and chrome-tanned leather, there are certain leathers for which it is not suitable (e.g., napped leathers, such as suede or glove soft leather, which call for treatment with lighter lubricants). NOTE: Leather that has become cracked from inadequate or inappropriate care cannot be restored to its original state by any available method.
In summary, Lexol is readily absorbed into the fibers and provides lasting and effective lubrication without migration while leaving leather feeling soft and smooth.
Lexol Conditioner Wipes are "Oh, so Convenient." Wipes are the latest idea in cleaning products and Lexol has taken them to new heights. Who else would think of putting a leather conditioner in a wipe?
The pop-up wipe canisters contain 25 pre-moistened towelettes. A single towel will clean and treat the entire interior, and can be kept just about anywhere. You don't have to worry about spilling liquid in the vehicle and no applicator is necessary to apply the products.
Lexol Conditioner Application:
A little bit of Lexol goes a long way. Multiple light coats are better than one heavy coat.
