How much impregnating agent do I need to waterproof a cotton tent?

Usage always depends on the type of tent canvas.

Usage always depends on the type of tent canvas.

  • The cotton tent canvas of a trailer tent, for example, will absorb less impregnating agent than the tent canvas of a safari tent.
  • On average you can continue with the usage below. 
  • Bottle 1L = 5 to 10 m²
  • It is wise to impregnate canvas, cotton or linen canvas if it is under tension.
  • After all, when the tent is up, you pull the canvas slightly open. 
  • Small holes then appear.
  • These holes can cause the tent to allow moisture penetration over time and become damp on the inside.
  • So preferably put up the tent before you start impregnating.

    Canvas & Cotton Protector 5L is a very strong impregnating agent for cotton and canvas. Makes cotton tent cloth waterproof and dirt-repellent. Do not dilute. Easy to apply with plant sprayer. Perfect for a safari tent, teepee or folding tent trailer.
