The easy to use, safe, high-performance waterproofing and UV blocker for all synthetic weatherproof textiles.

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.

To most effectively benefit from the ultraviolet (UV) and Durable Water Repellent (DWR) protection of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof® it is best applied to equipment from new.

During use, the equipment fabric will pick up dirt and other contaminants which stop water from beading on the fabric surface. When this occurs the DWR can be revitalised by cleaning with Nikwax Tech Wash®.

Over time the DWR will wear off through use. Both the DWR and UV protection can be replenished by reapplication of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof®.

  • Erect tent OR protect working surface and lay item flat.
  • Spray evenly to outside of fabric. For large items apply in sections.
  • Rub in well with a damp cloth/sponge, paying attention to particularly dirty areas. Use a soft nylon brush if necessary to remove stubborn stains.
  • Rinse with clean water using a cloth or sponge.

Drying:
Item(s) should be air-dried. Allow item(s) to fully dry before packing away

*Marks may appear on fabric if 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.
