Step-by-step plan: how can I impregnate a cotton tent?

Is your cotton tent no longer waterproof? You can quickly waterproof your tent by impregnating the tent cloth with the Canvas & Cotton Protector Impregnation spray from Ultramar. 

With this quick step-by-step plan, your cotton tent cloth will be waterproof again in no time

  • Step 1. Make sure the tent cloth is clean and dry and set up your tent.

  • Step 5. Let the tent cloth dry thoroughly.

Tips for impregnating your cotton tent cloth

Why you should set up the tent before you start impregnating? This causes the tent cloth to stretch slightly. This way, even minuscule holes are well filled. Also don't forget to take hard-to-reach corners and seams with you.

Good to know: the Canvas & Cotton Protector can initially leave a white haze or white spots. This is excess impregnating agent. You don't need to delete this, it will disappear by itself. Then you will no longer see this.
