It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.

Nikwax LogoNikwax waterproofing products are easy to use, environmentally friendly and highly effective.

Their range of cleaners and waterproofing products can be used on virtually every item of outdoor clothing and outdoor equipment.

Water Based Waterproofing Products

Nikwax waterproofing products are all water based, making them very environmentally friendly.

Being water based also means that they can be used on wet clothing and equipment which is not only easier and quicker, but makes them even more effective.

Non-Detergent Cleaners

As well as reproofing products, Nikwax also make a range of cleaners and non-detergent soaps.

Detergents will damage the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish on waterproof outdoor clothing, and the use of products like Nikwax Tech Wash will avoid this.

Nikwax Insect Repellents

They have also recently introduced a range of DEET free insect repellents which are highly effective.

These are also environmentally friendly and will not irritate sensitive skin.

Nikwax History

Nikwax was started by Nick Brown when he used to go walking every year in Scotland and found the available proofing products all wanting. So he invented his own wax - hence the name Nick’s Wax.

He wanted a wax which would waterproof his boots but not soften the leather. The non-softening attribute was important for maintaining the support provided by the boots.

At the age of 22 he made the first commercial version of Nikwax in a flat in London.

First Water Based Waterproofing

In 1983 he invented a water-based reproofer which would not need to use any harmful or flammable solvents.

Consequently, Nikwax became the first company in the world to produce a range of water-based products for waterproofing clothing and footwear.

Today, Nikwax is an internationally famous brand, and the company has won the Queen’s Award for Export three times.

Their products are not only easy to use and environmentally friendly, but also extremely effective.
