Nikwax Waterproofing: Fabric & Leather Proof 125ml
Washing and reproofing your waterproof will improve performance and longevity. This should be done with the use of gentle non-detergent based cleaners so that the weatherproofed coatings are not stripped off (with DWR) and so pores stay unclogged (as with membranes such as GORE-Tex and e-Vent). You should retreat your waterproof garments every 4-6 months, depending on usage.
Waterproof garments can be treated with a wash-in product in the washing machine, or spray-on solution. Sprays are best suited for coatings, whereas wash-in treatments work best with membranes.
Nikwax treatments coat fabric and leather fibres with a network of elastic TX.10i water-repellent molecules. They bond to anything that is not water-repellent, but leave the spaces between fibres open and breathable. Nikwax treatments can flex and move with the fabric and leather fibres. That is why Nikwax treatments can withstand several washings and remain whereas the competitors must be re-applied after each wash.
Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ is easy and quick to apply; either spray or sponge on to wet boots. Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ provides highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) which develops on air drying. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres of fabric and leather. This allows moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and keeping your feet dry. Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof™ has been specifically designed and optimised for fabric and leather combination footwear.
