Description

Cotton is highly absorbent and retains water, so it takes a long time to dry once wet. Therefore, it is important to ensure that cotton outer garments and equipment don’t absorb water, as this will cause them to increase in weight and will impair their breathability.

To prevent cotton fabrics from absorbing water Durable Water Repellency (DWR) can be added by applying Nikwax Cotton Proof™. Nikwax Cotton Proof™ is a must-have for people who enjoy outdoor pursuits. Whether you have cotton or polycotton jackets or workwear, or a canvas tent, it will provide Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to prevent water absorption and weight gain.

  • Safe product to use on cotton outerwear and equipment
