Fabisil Waterproof Solvent

Made for the elements. Designed for life.

Product Description

Fabsil is a highly effective silicone-based water repellent treatment for all kinds of outdoor kit. It produces a strong, waterproof barrier against rain and bonds well to a wide range of fabrics including canvas, cotton, polyester, and nylon. Colourless and odourless when dry.
Tinned Fabsil contains a UV inhibitor which will help to prevent fading and fabric degradation caused by UV rays.

Directions: Apply to clean, dry fabric with a new paintbrush or coarse spray. To ensure a uniform finish treat the whole article and maintain a “wet edge.” Immediately after application, rub the treated fabric with a clean cloth and allow around 6 hours drying time. Rain and dew must not contact treated material until the proofing has dried.
Coverage: 1 litre of Fabsil will cover up to 18sq metres of nylon, 7.5sq metres of lightweight or 5sq metres of medium weight canvas.

Fabsil is unsuitable for painted leather, glued seams and plastic-coated fabrics including ground sheeting and vinyl windows. If your windows need cleaning we have window polish available or recommend cleaning with water and a cloth.
