FabriCoat Upholstery Kit - Fabric Colour Change Guide - Step 1, Fabric Cleaning

Step 1.

Make sure the material is clean and free of dust. If cleaning is required simply spray on the Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner until the surface appears wet, agitate well with the Tampico Brush and allow to dwell for five minutes. After allowing to dwell, take the lint free cloth and firmly wipe the area down, this will draw the dirt out of the fabric. Repeat this process until you no longer see dirt being transferred onto the cloth. After cleaning you should leave the item to dry thoroughly.  
When changing the colour of an item, it is important to note that you should only use this kit to change to a darker colour. The material must also be absorbent, it is unlikely that the FabriCoat will properly adhere to a non-absorbent fabric.
 

FabriCoat Upholstery Kit - Fabric Colour Change Guide - Step 2, Prepare Fabric Dye Mix

Step 2.

Thin the FabriCoat down with Penetrating Solution using the bucket provided, this will help penetration into stubborn fibres. For example, you should be mixing 250ml of Fabricoat with 125ml of Penetrating Solution, 500ml of FabriCoat should be mixed with 250ml of Penetrating Solution and so on... This ratio can be altered as desired in order to achieve a thinner or thicker mixture depending on the kind of coverage or effects you wish to achieve.

Step 4.

Pour the FabriCoat into the plastic bottle provided and screw this onto the bottom of the FabriCoat Sprayer until secure. Please ensure that the bottle is properly secured while taking care not to over-tighten as this can cause the bottle to become loose.
 
 

FabriCoat Upholstery Kit - Fabric Colour Change Guide - Step 5, Spray FabriCoat directly onto surface to be coloured, like Fabric Paint.

Step 5. 

Simply press down on the head of the Sprayer in order to begin applying colour to your item. For best results spray the FabriCoat onto the item using straight regular strokes, moving from one end of the panel being covered to the other.
Once an initial coat has been applied this step should be repeated from different directions in order to ensure proper surface coverage. If at any point the FabriCoat in the bottle you are using, or the propellant in the can, run out, simply unscrew it, refill the bottle and re-attach, or simply attach a new sprayer as required (don't forget to attach the feed tube!).
 

FabriCoat Upholstery Kit - Fabric Colour Change Guide - Step 6, Wipe Down and Leave Coloured Fabric to Dry

Step 6. 

When the desired depth of colour and coverage has been achieved leave it to dry, this can typically take between 4 and 8 hours depending on saturation/volume of FabriCoat applied and the ambient temperature in the drying environment.
 
 

FabriCoat Upholstery Kit - Fabric Colour Change Guide - Step 7, Apply Fabric Protector to seal in colour and prevent fading & staining.

Step 7.

When dry, apply the Fabric Protector liberally to the entire surface of the item, spraying until the surface appears wet, and leave for 24 hours to dry before use. This will repel all water and oil based staining while the UV inhibitors in the formula work to prevent the colour from fading in direct sunlight.

A. Yes, FabriCoat is incredibly versatile and can be used on any fabric item including; chairs, sofas & upholstery, clothing, curtains, car interiors, carpets and many more!

A. No, FabriCoat is designed to dry with a soft, flexible finish, allowing you to recolour or change the colour of your fabric items without changing how it feels.

Q. How soon can I use my item after applying FabriCoat?

A. Items should be left for at least an hour until the FabriCoat has completely dried, after which they should be safe to use. However, FabriCoat will take 72 hours to cure and strengthen completely, so it is not advised to use any cleaning solutions or other treatments on your fabrics for 72 hours after applying FabriCoat.

Q. Can I continue to clean and maintain my fabric items as normal after applying FabriCoat?

A. Yes. After allowing 72 hours for FabriCoat to completely cure, you should always clean and protect your fabrics regularly in order to extend their life and guard against future dirt and staining. We recommend the use of our Fabric Care Kit for this, combining powerful cleaning and protection in one handy kit.
