How Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ Spray-On protects.

Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ Spray-On is easy and quick to apply, and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat.

Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ Spray-On leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability.

The spray-on application allows for direct treatment of areas which require it most without compromising the properties of internal wicking liners.

Uses per bottle:

  • A 300ml bottle is enough to waterproof 1-2 garments depending on the condition of the fabric being treated

Apply Nikwax SoftShell Proof™ Spray-On by hand…
