The highest UV protection available for leathers exposed to the sun.
BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner keeps leather soft with state-of-the-art breathable polymers. Extreme UV protection resists leather yellowing or photo oxidation. The non-slick satin finish created by BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner resists wear and abrasion, arming your car's leather seats against daily wear and tear. In addition, BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner leaves a moisture barrier to prevent moisture from breaking down leather or stitching.
Many of the conditioners that claim to put a protective moisture barrier on the leather are not breathable. Because these products were developed a decade or more ago, they contained polymers that were greasy, slippery, shiny or actually sealed the leather's surface (preventing heat dissipation). While effective in some respects, these types of products do not meet all the requirements of leather.
BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner was developed to offer state-of-the-art UV protection plus a breathable moisture barrier that also guards against wear and abrasion. Sound like a tall order? It was but BLACKFIRE's chemist made it happen and now your vehicle reaps the benefits.
BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner penetrates deep into your leather for a conditioned, but not greasy, finish.
To resist perspiration, salt, skin oil, and lotion stains, our chemist selected a co-polymer recently developed by Dow Corning. This co-polymer crosslinks with itself to provide a blanket of protection on top of the leather. It blocks moisture yet still allows air flow through the coating to facilitate heat dissipation. This co-polymer is also non-greasy, dries almost on contact to a matte finish and isn't slippery.
For UV protection, BLACKFIRE's chemist went all the way to Switzerland to CIBA, the maker of TINUVIN 5151. Without getting too deep, TINUVIN 5151 contains both competitive UV absorbers and hindered amine light stabilizers (HALS) to significantly retard photo-oxidative degradation. UV-Absorbers prevent degradation by blocking, or absorbing, UV energy. HALS stabilizers act as radical scavengers and inhibit photo-oxidative breakdown reactions. Both UV-absorbers and HALS work together to provide the highest level of UV protection available.
To pack the maximum amount of conditioning oils, protective polymers and UV-absorbers in the formula, it had to be a rich cream. BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner is like applying a moisturizing lotion to your leather seats. However, it is not recommended on perforated leathers as it could clog the pores. Do not use on napped leathers such as suede.
Bottom line, if your car, bike, boat or RV has non-perforated leather seating, BLACKFIRE Leather Conditioner is the very best conditioner, UV block, and moisture barrier on the planet.
