How Nikwax works

Impregnation Nikwax® provide minimal contact of the material with water, letting it settle on the surface in the form of drops.

Raindrops in contact with the surface of tissue treated by means of Nikwax®, deform, but not penetrate deeply into the material.

Upon contact with water, the material treated with water-repellent Nikwax®, the last providing the resistance and pushes it to the surface.

Founder of Nikwax® Nick brown discovered and patented water-repellent elastomer Nikwax® TX.10i. Polymer TX.10i is the most important active ingredient all impregnation Nikwax® footwear and fabrics, and the key to their superior quality and durability.

• Nikwax handles the threads of the outer skin material and the water-repellent network of elastic TX.10i molecules. They are associated with something that is not water repellent, but leave space between fibers open and breathable.
• Impregnation Nikwax can be “flexible” and “move” together with the fibers and skin. That's why impregnation Nikwax can withstand several washings and remain effective, unlike analog, require re-application after each wash.
• Elastomer TX.10i. adds strength to the material. The increase in strength is achieved by the lubricating material, which allows the fibers to slide on top of each other. Processing external materials polymer gives them flexibility and allows the fibers to stretch and return to its initial position. This reduces the pressure at the crossover of the fibers, adding strength to the material.

* The active ingredients are discharged through the same canals as the water, reaching the ground water leakage, and thereby exerting a stronger impact on fiber fabrics and leather than just coating the top layer of material.
* Nikwax® water-based penetrating in those areas where it is needed, and therefore do not require re-application.
