Ballistol works well on leather and wood. It prevents leather from becoming brittle and protects it against humidity. It will protect & preserve boots, belts, saddles, bridles, slings, holsters, seat covers & clothes made of leather, even in tropical & desert climates.
Leather that is frequently exposed to rain or high humidity will become hard and brittle, if not treated adequately. Ballistol will keep all smooth leathers soft. It effectively protects leather against the impact of water, insects and fungi. Its use is recommended for carrying slings, belts, scabbards, holsters, boots, saddles, bridles, baseball gloves, saddle bags and motorcycle clothes (Do Not use on suede). If properly processed, leather will contain acidic residues from tannic acid. Ballistol will form a permanent chemical compound with these residues within the leather which will make the leather virtually impermeable to water.
