Preparing the article for treatment:

  • Best results and easier application are achieved when the article is in a taut position items such as tents or annexes should be erected with doorways and windows closed. Where this is not possible, spread on a clean surface.
  • Remove any dust or dirt by lightly brushing. Severe soiling should be removed with clean, warm water do not use any soap, detergent or other cleaning agents.
  • For mildewed fabric, a pretreatment with sodium hypochlorite bleach** (diluted 1 part bleach to 3 parts water) is recommended to remove growth and spores (be sure to carefully read and follow any safety directions outlined by the bleach supplier).
  • Before applying bleach, check the fabric colour is not affected by applying a small amount of the diluted solution to an inconspicuous part of the fabric.
  • Apply diluted solution to canvas with a soft brush. Allow to sit for 15 minutes then RINSE THOROUGHLY insufficient rinsing may result in fabric damage and interfere with water repellency.
  • Allow item to dry completely before applying BradProof WATER PROOFING TREATMENT.

  • Select a warm, sunny day to apply treatment.
  • Some settling of the compound may occur. Ensure that the compound is thoroughly mixed before use. SHAKE WELL.

  • Compound can be applied with a sponge mop, cloth swab, brush or roller.
  • Apply the compound evenly to both sides of the canvas (unless fabric is striped or patterned, when only the underside should be coated to avoid impairment of the pattern).
  • For maximum effectiveness, allow to dry completely before exposing to moisture, or folding and storing the article.

Drying Time: Approximately 48 hours if allowed to dry in warm, sunny conditions.
Clean-up: Wash brushes and rollers etc, in water.
Coverage: Depending on fabric weight, 1 litre will treat approximately 6 square metres (underside only) or 3 square metres (if both sides of fabric are treated).
