* Use as an effective alternative to repairing or replacing tents, non-breathable rainwear, backpacks, gaiters, panniers and sails. Great for repairing fabrics with damaged polyurethane, neoprene or PVC coatings. Quick and easy application can be used anywhere, anytime on wet or dry fabric.
* Available in 10 oz., 16.9 oz., 33.8 oz. and 169 oz. size bottles.

Instructions:
Clean by sponging off the tent or pack with a solution of Nikwax Tech Wash and water to remove any dirt. (Note: do not wash the tent in a washing machine.) You may also spray the tent with water to remove dirt or soap. Treat by applying Nikwax Tent and Gear Proof while the fabric is still damp, spray or apply with a brush generously and evenly on the uncoated side of the fabric. Check carefully to make sure no areas of the fabric have been missed. Wipe up runs with a damp cloth. Allow to soak into cloth for 5 minutes and then wipe all excess (drips, runs, puddles) away with a damp cloth. (Note: Failure to do so may leave a white residue) Apply a second coat to areas of high traffic or abrasion (such as tent floors or pack bottoms), following the instructions above. Allow the first coat to dry before applying the second, rewet the fabric before applying so that it is damp to the touch. Maintain after treating by sponging it off with a solution of Nikwax Tech Wash and water.
