eVent Fabrics and Nikwax have established a partnership agreement that will allow both companies to talk up the other's benefits and worth in marketing materials and web sites. In addition, consumers purchasing a technical garment made with eVENT Fabric Technology will also come away from the sale with information on Nikwax Tech Wash and TX-Direct. According to a Nikwax company release, the endorsement is the culmination of thorough testing in which Nikwax Tech Wash and TX-Direct were used to clean and treat the eVENT waterproof/breathable laminate. SNEWS® View: We like Nikwax products a lot and believe this is a natural move and a partnership that will serve eVent very well as it continues to establish market position. We've long used Tech Wash for cleaning our outdoor garments when very dirty and it works extremely well. Keep in mind, though, that since this is a fabric company competing with Gore, we very much doubt if it tested ReVivex, and eVent certainly wasn't going to endorse that product under any circumstances.
