Use approximately 50ml of product per 1m2 of fabric.
The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated.
Why exposure to UV can compromise synthetic materials
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 SolarWash® can double the effective life of equipment by cleaning and protecting against UV damage, while also revitalising Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to keep the rain out.
