Although resistant to most punctures and tears, there may be rare occasions when NYTEK grains are cut or bruised through abuse or an accident. Because of the high tear strength of NYTEK products, the cuts don’t tend to spread but can be difficult to repair. Tape inserted behind the cover to hold the thin material in place and close the cut will show as an outline or ridge, known as “x raying.”
Leather repair experts can remedy the problem if the cut or bruise has not penetrated the nylon microfiber. They can be found online and or through a referral from a leather upholsterer. They will apply waxes and other coatings to match the color, grain, and gloss of damaged NYTEK products.
