Description Technical Specs Application
What Is Heavy Duty LP?
An industrial strength leather preservative paste best used for conditioning full grain leather, top grain, and nubuck. Made with natural oils, beeswax, and propolis to create a smooth cream/paste that melts when applied by hand. The beeswax, in our leather preservative, provides a protective barrier on the outside, while the natural oils are absorbed into the leather. A true leather preservative and conditioner, Heavy Duty LP restores lost oils, provides protection from moisture and dirt while still allowing leather to breathe.

Benefits of using Heavy Duty LP:

  • Repels water, acids, petroleum, salt, and chemicals
  • Restores dried & sun-faded leather
  • Resists scuffing, abrasion, stitch tear, and premature cracking in flex areas
  • Odorless after applied (will not spook game)
  • Contains no harmful petroleum, solvents, paraffin, or mink oil

A Leather Preservative Paste Designed to Protect Work Boots
Our Heavy Duty LP provides industrial strength protection to keep work boots looking like new as long as possible. Applying leather preservative on a regular basis can double the life of most leather work boots used in extreme conditions such as, welding, farming, hunting, hiking, biking, horseback riding, inside factories, and outdoor workers like, lineman, trail builders, firefighters, ranchers, etc.

Don't need to preserve leather boots? Heavy Duty LP resists water, preserves, restores, and conditions leather shoes, belts, holsters, sheathes, saddle bags, tool pouches, and athletic gear. Not just a leather preservative, apply Heavy Duty to clean, warm, cotton oilskin dusters and hats to re-waterproof.

Leather Preservative Originally Developed for Wild-land Firefighters

Originally developed for severe working conditions of Wild-land Firefighters to preserve leather boots and provide heavy duty protection, naturally! Wild-land Firefighters boots are subjected to heat, steam, wet ashes, and fire retardants. If left untreated (without leather preservative), these conditions can ruin expensive boots faster. Obenauf's® Heavy Duty leather preservative paste provides a beeswax barrier to resist heat, chemicals, and moisture while replacing lost oils.

For tips on applying leather preservative, see the instruction videos below provided by Leather Crafter, Woodlander North.

    Unique Formula of Heavy Duty LP
    An Idaho Wild-land Firefighter developed this unique Beeswax/Propolis* Suspension Formula to protect leather against caustic fire retardant chemicals, heat, water, and abrasion. Natural oils are suspended in beeswax and propolis creating a smooth, leather preservative cream. On the leather, these oils gradually seep out of the Beeswax/Propolis Suspension Formula. When exposed to heat or flexing the oils are released faster, so leather gets oiled when and where it needs it most, instead of parched and cracked. This Beeswax/Propolis Suspension Formula provides a time release lubrication to inner fibers, reinforcing the surface against scuffing and abrasions, while still allowing leather to breathe.

    *Propolis is an antibacterial tree resin that resists bacteria and mold. It is a barrier against body acids, salt, and caustic chemicals. Combined with beeswax it will resist water better and longer.

5 of 5 Quality Product November 11, 2021
Reviewer: Thai L from Seattle, WA United States  
I have used the Heavy Duty LP on my boots for more than a decade after its recommendation by a Red Wing boots seller. It has not only kept the condition of the boots in tip top shape even with the usual abrasions and cuts found in the toe area, but has that pleasant effect of darkening the boots over time to an almost blackish quality which i find really helps give it some character. I have also successfully used it on some of my leather gloves and jackets just to get the life back into them. While gloves have a shorter life span than jackets the results do show an extension of oh i would say a couple extra months or so, but the jackets look fresh and supple. I would recommend this product to others and typically have.

Reviewer: James from Long Grove, IA United States  
As usual, the Heavy Duty LP is an excellent product and the service\shipping is first-rate. I will not use anything but Obenauf's products on my leather goods.

5 of 5 Classic car upholstery October 27, 2021
Reviewer: Wayne, classic car restorer from Australia, USA and New Zealand  
I started using Obenaufs LP about 20 years ago while living in US, on Jaguars, Porsche 911, Buicks, Mercedes, after spending hundreds of dollars before that on all products available, found Obenaufs , i was hooked, it is without a doubt the best leather restorer on the market. In some situations with old seats that originally may be removed for good, can be saved and restored back to looking better then  repaired by a shop. In today's classic car sales, original seat is worth more than re-upholstered seats. It is easy to apply and lasts for years, i can honestly recommend  this great product any time. Using many other products i found  they removed the colour, this is bad so i just threw them into the trash. Also, because its so good on autos, i also use it on small  items like, shoes, belts, wallets etc. So don't hesitate to buy your first Obenaufs.
