Why exposure to UV can compromise synthetic materials...

Synthetic fabrics used for tents and rucksacks are coated with a water repellent treatment. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light both destroys the water repellency and leads to a reduction in fabric tear strength, significantly shortening the lifespan of equipment. The application of Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash can double the effective life of equipment by cleaning and protecting against UV damage, while also revitalising Durable Water Repellency (DWR) to keep the rain out.

 
Tent and rucksack fabrics are light and strong, but vulnerable...

Tents and rucksacks use synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or polyester, with a thin watertight polyurethane (PU) or elastomeric coating on the inside and a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating on the outside. This combination gives great strength and water resistance, combined with light weight, ideal attributes for outdoor equipment. Unfortunately these fabrics are vulnerable to sunlight and in two weeks of continuous exposure, can lose up to half of their strength. Additionally, the inner coating will degrade if it is left damp for long periods. Nikwax Tent & Gear SolarWash cleans the entire fabric, and protects from the effects of both UV and water.
