Why protect the surface of your leatherette car seats?

Originally, all leatherette or imitation leather car seats are protected by a suitable varnish, which serves as a protection to preserve the aesthetics and material of the seats. However, and as we explained above, over time, daily aggressions, but also the application of more or less aggressive household products, this varnish gradually wears out and disappears. Without active protection, it is therefore the colour and then the material of your car seat that quickly degrade, at the risk of irreparable damage.

Indeed, too much wear and tear on a leatherette or imitation leather surface does not allow you to carry out a simple repair with a satisfactory result. In this case, you are obliged to carry out a complete renovation of the imitation leather of your car. In order to avoid this situation, it is therefore necessary to protect your surface regularly with a varnish suitable for artificial leather. You can thus be sure that the incomparable aesthetics of your car's interior will be preserved for a long time to come, with colours that are as bright as ever and a preserved material.

Sofolk Clear Varnish: the ideal protection for your imitation leather car seats.

Sofolk Leatherette Clear Coat is a protection that can be applied on many materials such as leatherette, vinyl, polyurethane, but also real natural leather. Its quality formula allows you to protect all your leather or leatherette car seats effectively, even when you don't know the precise material. In addition, our Sofolk varnish is available in two versions to best suit your situation:

- Clear Varnish in 125 ml, 200 ml, or 500 ml cans for easy application: water-based, this solvent-free product promises you simple and effective protective care with each use, and comes in a variety of formats so that you can choose only the quantity that suits your needs.

- Clear Varnish in 400 ml aerosol cans, for improved resistance: with a solvent base, this product allows you to protect all surfaces quickly. An anti-UV option can also be added to the formula if you wish.

Whichever you choose, you will benefit from a top-of-the-range varnish to protect your vehicle's leatherette or leatherette seats. This way, you help to maintain their impeccable condition for a long time to come, as well as their daily comfort. In addition, the two available versions of our Clear Varnish allow you to choose the finish of your choice on your car seats with three variants for all types of vehicles: gloss, satin or matt.

How do you protect the imitation leather of your car?

All Sofolk protective varnishes have been developed to be accessible to everyone. So you don't need any special skills to use them yourself on your car seats, and you can carry out this protective care at home with ease.

For the water-based Clear Varnish, simply apply it to the surface with a slightly damp sponge. If the varnish has a few bubbles, you must absolutely crush them before it dries, in order to avoid an unsightly finish and uneven protection of the material.
If you choose to use the Clear Spray Varnish, the practical format of this article allows you to spray the product easily onto the material. However, it is recommended to carry out this application outdoors with the doors open so as not to breathe the solvents contained in this version.
In any case, it is important to respect the drying times indicated before using your vehicle again. This time allows the varnish to dry properly and guarantees optimal protection of your leatherette car seats. Furthermore, we advise you to clearly define the quantity necessary to protect your car seats in order to avoid any unsightly demarcation and make it easier for you to preserve your interior.
Our items are available in different sizes to suit your needs. If you have any doubts about the quantity to order, our teams are at your disposal to advise and guide you according to your project.

When should I apply the protective skai varnish?

Sofolk Clear Varnish must be applied after each wash of your car seats. An application that only lasts a few seconds, the time it takes to apply a thin layer of varnish to your cleaned surfaces and to guarantee renewed protection for your vehicle. No matter how dirty your car interior is, it is advisable to apply Sofolk Stain Remover and Clear Varnish at least once every three months in order to preserve the aesthetics and comfort of your imitation leather or leatherette car seats as much as possible.

In the same way, it is advisable to apply a protective varnish when you have just re-coloured your seats. Indeed, this new stain must be preserved for a long time and remain brilliant over the years. The only way to achieve this is therefore to offer it an adapted and regularly renewed protection that will withstand the daily aggressions in its place and thus prevent premature wear and tear, as well as a dull colour.
