Colorbond penetrates the surface of leather, vinyl, abs, pvc, polycarbonate, polyurethane, lexan, thermal plastic urethane, metal, and (tpo) polypropylene, and forms a molecular bond that restores or changes the color permanently.

Colorbond is dry to the touch in minutes and cures within 10 minutes. The vehicle can be used within minutes of application.

Colorbond will not crack, flake, or peel. The grain simulation is never altered or hidden, no matter how many times colorbond is applied. The suppleness or "hand" is never affected and does not become stiff or brittle.

A base and tinting system is available so an OEM color match is achieved each and every time.

Colorbond is easy to use. In many cases Colorbond is a one step process.

Colorbond is UV stable.

Colorbond can be used on dash panels, seats, instrument panels, steering wheels, airbag covers, convertible tops, mirrors, and exterior trim. Virtually any where on a vehicle, boat or powersport.

Colorbond is OEM approved and used by the Ford Motor Company.

Tips + Tricks

Quick Methods for Testing Adhesion

Wipe a small area of the substrate with a solvent or mineral spirit. If it becomes sticky, (tacks up) 100 % adhesion will occur. Place a piece of tape over the affected area and remove. If any Colorbond is removed, then the molecular bond has not occurred.

Feel the surface of the substrate. Plastics such as PE will have an oily film on the surface. Colorbond cannot penetrate through the heavy concentration of oil.

Three Primary Reasons Colorbond will Fail to Adhere

Improper application. Colorbond has been sprayed too heavily or quickly. This will not allow the solvents to dry. Use light mist coats and allow 2 minutes between application.

Improper surface preparation of the substrate. Cleaning the substrate is critical. If any silicone or oils remain on the surface of the substrate, Colorbond will not adhere. The use of a solvent is recommended on painted surfaces. Alcohol for removal of silicone.

Application to an incorrect substrate. Application to a substrate such as polyethylene.
