Prep area with S100 Silicone Wash. This assures a clean surface free of protectants.

If damage is completely through the fabric, insert a piece of VM6 Sub Patch Material between the fabric and foam cushion using tweezers or palette knife. If the foam is gone you can put a piece of DACRON in the hole. Fix backing in place with FBA (Fitzgerald's Base Velour Adhesive), adding enough adhesive to fill the hole. If the damage is only superficial, simply add FBA directly to the repair area.

Using the VCC Velour Color Chart, select the velour color which best matches the fabric. If need be, intermix other colors to make an exact match. Try to use fibers within the basic color family. Embed fibers into the adhesive using a detail brush or toothbrush. Accent patterned velour using a single-edged razor blade to define lines or squares. Place remaining fibers into an EVA-2000 electrostatic velour applicator or a velour atomizer.

Fitzgerald's Water Base Velour Spray Adhesive

WBVA spray adhesive may be applied with a mouth atomizer, Preval sprayer, or Wagner Power Sprayer. If the adhesive is too thick for your method of application, reduce with water only as much as needed to attain atomization. Spray adhesive over repaired area, blending into adjacent fabric. For large or multiple repairs an entire panel may be sprayed.

Shake velour fibers with a VS (velour shaker), an EVA electrostatics velour applicator, or apply the fiber with a A11 (velour atomizer) onto the adhesive. If you use an EVA the fibers will be drawn into the adhesive, standing on end, leaving a soft velvety feel to the repair. Apply a light coat of velour adhesive over the fibers and heat "set" the adhesive using a hair dryer or heat gun on low. Top coat with S-704 Durashield to add a soft finish.
