AltBerg Leder-Gris® Xtreme
Altberg Leder-Gris Xtreme is a mixture of 50% oil, and 50% wax. It is not recommended for everyday use. Leder-Gris® Xtreme should be used as a restorative only. If the leather has been extremely wet, or is getting regularly wet and dry, then hardening of the leather will begin, and this can result in early signs of cracking where the boot flexes. Use of Leder-Gris® Xtreme softens the leather, and used correctly, it will extend the time before the leather begins to crack. Leder-Gris® Xtreme is also good for using on heavy leathers, if you want to soften them a little.
High oil content: oils are restorative oils
Meduim wax content: waxes are a mixture of synthetic waxes and bees
Occasional use only: to restore leather oils lost during drying out, after boots have been extremely wet
Not for regular everyday use: if used too often, Leder-Gris Xtreme will over-soften leather – so only use if leather is getting regularly soaked
Size of tin 80gms
Not tested on animals
Keep out of reach of children – if swallowed, seek medical advice Avoid contact with eyes and mouth
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF ALTBERG LEDER-GRIS
Brush in Leder-Gris® when the boots are almost dry
Use the brush to work, and drive the wax oil into the leather
Always treat with Leder-Gris® before storage
If leather shows signs of hardening, or after use in extreme wet conditions, use Leder-Gris® Xtreme as a ‘one-off’ treatment
Alt-Berg only recommends Leder-Gris® – we DO NOT recommend dubbins, saddle soap, or any kiwi type polishes
All leather will eventually show signs of cracking where the boot flexes. Treatment with Leder-Gris® will slow down the rate at which this cracking will occur.
Drying boots too quickly will harden the leather and accelerate flex cracking - rapid drying may also shrink the boot and alter the fitting. Always let boots dry naturally in a cool place.
DRYING LEATHER WHEN WET
Never dry quickly Never dry near heat
Never dry, or leave in sunlight
Never force dry in any way Drying boots too quickly can shrink them - if you're in a very hot climate, cover the boots with a damp cloth to slow down the rate of moisture evaporation
Use Leder-Gris Original (green label) regularly
