Nikwax Tent and Gear SolarWash - 500ml Spray Bottle
Easy to use technical cleaner with UV protection for cotton, canvas and synthetic tents, awnings marquees, rucksacks, paniers and camera bags. Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash cleans effectively, revitalises water repellency, and improves the useful life of fabrics by protecting against UV deterioration.
Anyone who is active outdoors needs waterproof equipment. Whether it be a day-to-day rucksack, panniers on your bike, or a tent for summer holidays, most of us have outdoor equipment of some description.
Tents and rucksacks use synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or polyester, with a thin watertight polyurethane (PU) or elastomeric coating on the inside and a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating on the outside. This combination gives great strength and water resistance, combined with light weight; ideal attributes for outdoor equipment. Unfortunately these fabrics are vulnerable to sunlight and in two weeks of continuous exposure, can lose up to half of their strength. Additionally, the inner coating will degrade if it is left damp for long periods.
Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash cleans the entire fabric, and protects from the effects of both UV and water. It saves you money by potentially doubling the useful life of your outdoor gear. Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash can be applied to wet or dry weatherproof fabrics, including cotton, canvas and all synthetic fabrics.
For effective cleaning of outdoor clothing, and synthetic sleeping bags, use Nikwax Tech Wash.
How to use Tent and Gear SolarWash:
Your outdoor equipment could be soaking up water just because it is dirty. First, try cleaning it with Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash, and if it is fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning.
* You don't need to re-waterproof every time you clean your waterproof equipment. Regular cleaning will enhance the performance of your gear. With regular cleaning, you should be able to clean your gear 5-6 times with Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash before it requires re-waterproofing. When Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash alone does not revitalise the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of your gear (e.g. water does not bead on the fabric surface) it’s time to re-waterproof using Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof for equipment or Nikwax Cotton Proof for cotton, polycotton and canvas.
Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash can be applied to wet or dry weatherproof fabrics, including cotton, canvas and all synthetic fabrics.
Item(s) should be air dried. Allow item(s) to dry fully before packing away.
*The coverage is approximate and depends on the condition of the fabric being treated.
Nikwax Product Ethics:
Nikwax takes great care to minimise the effect of Nikwax waterproofing products on the environment and on you, the consumer.
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 SolarWash an double the effective life of equipment by cleaning and protecting against UV damage, while also revitalising Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to keep the rain out.
