Nikwax Concentrated Tent & Gear SolarProof
It’s that time of year when our minds turn to activities such as camping trips or hiking adventures, to make the most of the longer days. But before heading outside you need to ensure your equipment is ready to cope with either rain showers or hot sunshine. Synthetic fabrics used on tents and rucksacks are coated with a water repellent treatment, but exposure to UV light will destroy this and diminish the fabric tear strength, meaning your equipment’s lifespan is reduced.

Nikwax Concentrated Tent & Gear SolarProof doubles the life of equipment by protecting against UV damage and replacing the Durable Water Repellency (DWR).

Nikwax Concentrated Tent & Gear SolarProof:

  • Adds DWR
  • Provides protection from the sun’s damaging rays
  • Increases fabric strength
  • Is specifically designed for synthetic outdoor equipment, including tents, rucksacks and bike panniers
  • Can be applied to wet or dry fabric
  • Saves you money by effectively doubling the life of your gear
  • No heat required to develop the DWR and UV protection
  • Is water based, non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is fluorocarbon-free.

  • Test your knowledge on our WebQuiz and if you answer all 10 simple questions correctly, a FREE 50ml sachet of Nikwax Concentrated Tent & Gear Solarproof will be on its way to you.
