Using Tent & SolarProof® safely adds durable waterproof protection to synthetic weatherproof fabrics as well as protection against UV damage and increasing fabric strength. It gives you the most benefit when applied to new equipment with just one application potentially doubling the life of the fabric. Make sure the fabric is clean and apply - no need to wait for the fabric to be dry first. Waterbased and environmentally friendly.


  • Specifically designed and optimised for outdoor equipment to provide Durable Water Repellency (DWR) and ultraviolet (UV) protection
  • Unlike solvent-based products, which need to be applied to dry materials, Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarProof® can be applied to wet or dry fabrics so no need to wait if your tent is wet
  • Can double the effective life of synthetic waterproof fabrics by protecting against UV damage while simultaneously providing DWR to keep rain out
  • It is best applied to equipment from new to get the most effective benefit
  • WaterBased, non-aerosol, non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), fluorocarbon free and environmentally friendly
  • Revilatise fabrics by regularly cleaning dirt and other contaminants off with Nikwax Tech Wash ® and as you notice the fabric's DWR and UV protection is decreasing revitalise with Tent & Gear Solarproof
  • To use:
    • For best results always clean item(s) first. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.
    • Protect working surface and lay clean wet item flat, or erect tent and wet.
    • Spray evenly to outside of fabric. Avoid rucksack straps.
    • Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
