MAXMATT Basecoat Dense will allow you to achieve the highest quality on your leather edge. The Basecoat can be used almost on all kinds of leather and it is recommended when you have to finish a leather edge with a large width.
This paint should only be used as a first layer and its purpose is to prepare the leather edge for the following coloring phases. Basecoat Dense could be applied both by hand and by automatic machine. Once it is completely dried it could be sanded or brushed, in order to get a very smooth leather edge surface.
The Basecoat Dense (previously known as Dense Edge Paint Colourless) was designed to facilitate leathercrafters during the leather edge finishing process, especially when they work on leather edges with a very large width. Used as first layer on the raw leather edge, the Basecoat Dense increases the adhesion characteristics on the leather and acts as a filler for all the blank spaces of the edge surface.
Finishing leather edges made up with more than one leather layer (such as in bags, bag handles, wallets, etc.) this filling function will make the line in the middle of leather edge disappear. Usually with old leather edge paints you can still see the line in the middle.
During the application phase the Basecoat appears to be whitish in color but once dried has a semi-transparent color and a very solid consistency. Once completely dry, the Basecoat can be worked using a brush, a scotch-brite cloth or a sand paper (we recommend a very fine grain) in order to get a uniform and very smooth leather edge without any imperfection. Once you have prepared the leather edge in this way, you can proceed to the next coloring phases, choosing the most suitable paints for your leather type and your favorite finishing effects.
In case of application on oily/greasy leather the product may loose some adhesion due to the difficulties in penetrating the leather. In that case we suggest the use of the Adhesion Aid specifically designed to solve this kind of problem.

- Très efficace
- Je travaille le cuir fini chrome, lorsque je veux teindre ma tranche, il est très difficile de donner un fini professionnel aux bords du cuir. Il faut souvent jusqu'à 7 couches de teinture pour que je sois satisfaite. C'est avec joie que j'ai découvert la teinture Giardini. Maintenant, 1 couche de base et une autre de la couleur choisie et le tour est joué. Bravo Giardini !!! (Posted on 6/26/2018)
