A fast curing, ready-to-use crosslinking agent used to strengthen polyurethane coatings for a robust, professional finish.
Crosslinker Eco is a hardener used to strengthen polyurethane coatings, it is a fast curing ready-to-use waterborne activated polycarbodiimide crosslinking agent.
Specially formulted to be completely non hazardous, the addition of this complex molecule is used to enhance the physical properties of waterborne polyurethane coatings. When mixed with Leather Finish, Crosslinker Eco reacts quickly with the coating to remove the water content and any impurities. At this stage, the Crosslinker then proceeds to form a chemical bond between the molecules in the coating, creating a much tougher and harder wearing finish.
The diagrams above show how the addition of Crosslinker to the coating changes the bonds formed during the curing process and produces a finish with superior strength and durability.
Crosslinker Eco can be used on all different articles of leather, from furniture and car interiors to clothes, shoes, handbags and even equestrian leathers. Crosslinker Eco is an additive to the Leather Finish where a more robust finish is required. It can be used anywhere Leather finish is normally applied but is particularity suitable for high use wear areas. It works on all colours of leather and all different grain types.

Crosslinker Eco should be mixed into the finish at a ratio of 1 part Crosslinker eco to 8 parts finish;
As an example, 50ml/grams of Crosslinker Eco should be added to 400ml/grams of Leather finish giving 450ml/grams of ‘crosslinked Leather Finish’.
The crosslinked Leather Finish has a pot life of 7 days; meaning once mixed, it should be used within this time.
