Makes any item look like new again!
Ready-mixed and ready to apply. Will not crack, peel, flake or rub off on clothing.
Color Flex is a specially formulated, water-based finish that dries quickly, looks and feels like the original surface; just like the new finish coatings that furniture, clothing and automotive manufacturers use on their leather. Dries into a flexible Satin finish in about 15 minutes. See our Clear Coat page for other available top coat finishes. Highly flexible and scratch-resistant. Will not crack, peel, or flake. Color Flex will hide minor imperfections but it will not fill cracks. Only our repair compound can do that.
Recolor: Stains, scuffs, faded and worn areas..even change colors.
Suitable for Use On: Furniture, auto interiors, shoes, purses, briefcases, equestrian leather and much more!
Safe for Use On: Vinyl and all leather except for suede or Nubuck.

Estimating coverage can be tricky. Much depends on the condition of the surface the Color Flex is being applied to and the color itself. For most small projects our 5.1 bottle is more than sufficient. A good comparison that most people would be familiar with: A typical 12 oz aerosol can holds approximately 3.4 oz of color, the rest is solvent and propellant.
Lighter colors (colors that contain white) will cover better than colors that contain more transparent tints like red. Shades of red typically require more applications. We double the tint base to combat that but please be aware that shades of red may not cover as well as the stated areas below.
One 5.1 oz bottle of Color Flex (double these for the 10 oz bottle)
Same color or similar – 1 coat covers approximately 14 sq ft – or two front seats of a car or one large arm chair
Change color – 2 coats covers approximately 7 sq ft
Store in a cool, dark place with the lid tightly fastened. Make sure that the edge of the container is clean and free of any debris. Stored properly, Color Flex should last for at least a year (possibly longer) without degrading. If it thickens, you can add some Clear Coat to it to bring it back to its normal consistency.
For another car seat repair this year I used only the Color Flex Finish that I have selected based on the listed car internal color and matched it with the Auto color charts table on Magic Mender's website. It was a Light Grey color, and as with all light colors, I knew the matching could be a problem. This time the supplied Color Flex Light Grey finish had a bit blue shade to otherwise light grey color. After some consideration I have decided to apply the color using the technique shared by Magic Mender's representative. Although the color matching was not perfect, in general I was satisfied with repair.
I want specifically praise Magic Mender's responsiveness and their attitude to customer questions.
