Nikwax treatments coat fabric 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 Cleaners are specifically designed to revitalise the waterproof properties of the fabrics. Breathable waterproof items always come pre-treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating that prevents the absorption of water into the material. DWR is compromised by dirt, or by cleaning with a conventional laundry detergent. Dirt attracts water and household detergents leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, leading to fabric 'wetting out' in wet or damp conditions. Nikwax Cleaners for waterproof items clean water-repellent fabrics effectively and revitalise DWR by removing water-attractive dirt and detergent residues.
