A substitute for quality leather is used in the manufacture of a large number of items. In addition to elasticity and a high level of quality, for a relatively small amount, it has many of its features, manifested in the subsequent transformation.
Any product upholstered in artificial leather has its own life or unpleasant moments associated with improper use. For maximum effect, you need to know a few rules and relationships contained in the composition of the substance.
How and with what to stick dermatin to dermatin?
Strength is sufficient for heavy loads, but does not reach maximum compaction. In case of damage, you should buy a special glue or liquid skin.
The development of a new product has created a solution to most problems with fixing almost any kind of damage. Its effectiveness is aimed at interacting with real skin. How to be in our case? For a strong connection with dermatin, effective masking and obtaining a uniform surface, it is better to use special glue.
With them we connect the lining with two sides of the material. After the glue has dried, a thin layer of liquid skin can be applied. It has an additional property of fixation and many shades that will hide all the shortcomings of your product.
To achieve a cheap and quick result, some people use super glue. As a result, the material and lining deforms and hardens, obtaining an additional layer of translucent material. If a thing is suitable and expensive, do not save money on its repair.
Any kind of contact adhesive can solve your problem. Its composition does not "conflict" with dermatin, but at the same time provides a tight connection. The most popular, on this issue, is the Moment adhesive. It is multifunctional and has practically no significant disadvantages.
How to glue?
Wipe the necessary part of the material with a solvent (or other degreasing, water-containing substance). Glue spread with a thin layer, allowing it to dry (a second layer is necessary for a stronger connection). After pressing or strongly compressing the two parts, we grind the outgoing edges (if any).
How to stick dermatine on the couch?
Why not use the tools at hand and save time and money with proper repairs? The method described below can be applied to the restoration of the car interior, items with a thick and strong layer of leatherette. Do not forget that each approach depends on the type of damage.
Patches are used for tearing, large scuffs and when the edges of the material do not touch each other. Their function is to cover the gap, in which the edges capture more space. The application of dermatine to the surface leads to a thickening of the layer, which is very noticeable from the side.
To avoid loss of general appearance, people resort to another option. When you buy the necessary piece of dermatin to match the color and pattern of your furniture, you cut it so that it fits correctly and tightly into the damaged space. If this is a scuff, then you can carefully cut it around the circumference, getting rid of the corners.
Here you will need a lining made of any material, including cotton. It is necessary to strengthen the seams and captures a larger space than the patch itself. Glue should be a special elastic glue on the previously wiped with a solvent space. After drying with a hairdryer, a small layer of glue is applied to the side of the strip that will come in contact with the patch.
Burned or different types of cuts are eliminated in an easier way. Set the lining and evenly spread the contents of the tube. To obtain a pattern, a special cloth is attached to the tool. As a final action, press it with any object with a hard surface, passing through the entire area.
Adhesive material selection
Despite the fact that liquid skin is an adhesive, for a long and high-quality fixation, you have to additionally purchase. All the same rules and features described above apply here (glue bases). Unambiguously the choice falls on the Moment glue. Its feature is that it can withstand maximum loads, with a small volume.
Important! Clay moment comes in different types and from different countries of producers. This should be remembered when buying in a store. Be sure to see the composition and function of the product.
Dermatic iron door trim
You can attach the layer using special holes for nails. For iron doors, glue is used. Such work has many difficulties and features.
What to look for?
Start by completely cleaning the door from the bulges. Remove the lock, eye and other objects, proceed to wipe with a water-containing substance (solvent). Depending on the proper functions, glue the desired number of layers. If you need serious insulation and sound insulation, use foam rubber and a special fabric with a high density. Foam is glued to the glue, and sound insulation blocks have a device - the sticky side. Lastly, a layer of dermatin is being established. When attaching from top to bottom, pull along the length and sides.
Important! Before cutting holes for the lock and eye, set the layers as correctly as possible, without making a mistake in size! Otherwise, you have to buy a new roll.
Types of glue
- heat resistance;
The “Moment” and contact adhesive 88 have these properties. In some cases, PVA is used.
Attention! When stopping at PVA, do not forget about its variety. It happens clerical, household and universal (construction). Durability and effectiveness of the latter, suitable for laying on the door.
Having decided not to go to special workshops and do everything yourself, do not forget about the sequence of actions. For example: the lack of preliminary cleansing of the surface leads to poor bonding with material that is inhibited by fat or other
This article only describes dermatin use. In addition to it, there are a large number of types of artificial skin that are radically different in their compositions and methods of use.
