TOUCHMILL C/W8

Touchmill C/W8 is a touch modifier, ideal for all finished leathers and for nubuck and suede. It gives leathers a waxy and slightly talc hand. After using Touchmill C/W8, leather has the sensation of being softer. Neither the opacity nor the shine of the leather finish changes. Touchmill C/W8 is also used at the beginning of tumbling (when a temperature of 45°C is reached) to soften finished leathers and helps in “crocking” the finish. For it to have a good effect, it is sufficient to tumble only 4-5 hours after the product is applied. Compared to Touchmill C/FAT, C/W8 it has a less softening effect, but the leather is lighter, and the finish effect is unaltered. It is a product that can be used in water-based fixatives at 5-6%.
