Nikwax Polar Proof waterproofing For Fleece 300ml
Easy to use, safe, high performance waterproofing for fleece
Adds Durable Water Repellency - reduces weight gain and maintains breathability and insulation of fleece in wet weather
Although the individual fibres of fleece cannot absorb water, it is possible for water to become trapped in the spaces between the fibres. The accumulation of water reduces the insulating properties of fleece and also causes weight gain; fleece can hold up to 50% of its weight in water!
This reduces the comfort of the user causing them to feel wet and cold, but more importantly the reduction in insulation is dangerous and in severe cases can lead to hypothermia.
Nikwax Polar Proof® has been specifically designed and optimised for fleece garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in wet weather. Additionally, it inhibits pilling of fleece fabrics, prolonging the life of gear.
Nikwax Polar Proof® is easy and quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the garment. The highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of Nikwax Polar Proof® develops on air drying. Therefore the need for tumble drying is removed, saving energy.
