Why we made this
The easy to use, safe, high performance waterproofing and UV blocker for all synthetic weatherproof textiles.
  • Product Description
    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. It can be applied to wet or dry synthetic fabrics and it is water-based, non-aerosol, non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. It contains no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and is completely fluorocarbon free. Nikwax recommends 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.

Would Nikwax Tent & Gear be suitable to waterproof synthetic horse covers?
Ngaire R on May 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Not 100% sure Ngaire. Might be worth calling your local store for the best advise -
Is this ok for nylon. Does it form a ‘skin’? As looking to windproof fabric. Thanks
Pw J on Apr 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hey Pw! This product is safe for use on nylon, but will not add much wind repellancy. It is designed to increase water repellency and add UV protection, but will not do much for the wind resistance of a material. Refer to the Nikwax website for more information on their products.
