Adds Durable Water Repellency increases fabric strength & protects against UV deterioration; one application can double the effective life of fabrics. Can be applied to wet or dry synthetic fabrics.
Synthetic fabrics used for tents and rucksacks are coated with a water repellent treatment. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light both destroys the water repellency and leads to a reduction in fabric tear strength, significantly shortening the lifespan of equipment. The application of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof® can double the effective life of equipment by protecting against UV damage, while also providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to keep the rain out.
For best results always clean item(s) first. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.
*Marks may appear on fabric if the excess product is not wiped away.
Test on a hidden area first.
Use approximately 50ml of product per 1m2 of fabric. The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated.
To maintain waterproofing always clean with Nikwax Tech Wash®. Do not use detergents. To waterproof cotton, polycotton or canvas use Nikwax Cotton Proof™.
