Nikwax Raises the Bar with New Formula: Nikwax® TX Direct 11.1

The No.1 Global Choice for Aftermarket Care and Waterproofing Just Got Better!

Seattle, Wash. – As the global leader in environmentally safe aftercare and waterproofing solutions, Nikwax® announces the introduction of a revolutionary reformulation to its leading waterproofing product. The new TX.Direct® version 11.1 surpasses industry mandates for waterproofing and resiliency by 50-times. This new formulation showcases Nikwax's dedication to constant improvement.

“Here at Nikwax, our scientists never sleep as they strive to perfect even the most notable formulas we offer,” says Nick Brown, founder of Nikwax. “Whether your next adventure has you charting the seas or scaling the tallest peak, the TX Direct 11.1 will keep you warm, dry and comfortable when you need it most.”

TX.Direct® version 11.1 is so effective that it offers five times more protection than the original formula. Nikwax guarantees that no matter the age of the garment, you can revive it's waterproofing qualities, perhaps making its ability to withstand the elements better now than when it was first purchased.
