This is a water-based proofer with a wax sealer in it which is applied to the exterior or outside component of the fabric, which is subjected to the elements and weather, much the same as painting a house or a fence. Tent Magic Poly, when dry, leaves a breathable finish.
NB: When dry, Tent Magic and Tent Magic Poly will leave a whitewash effect.
Each litre should cover up to an estimated 6 square metres (maximum). Waterproofing depends on the fabric’s age and condition. The fabric must be clean, dry and free of mold, and there should be no surface materials on the fabric (such as prior waterproofing treatments) which will impede Tent Magic’s performance and bonding ability.
Please do not waterblast your tent or horse covers. This will damage the fabric. Please do not use acid or bleach cleaners, such as 30 Seconds, if your item is dirty. These types of cleaners or mold killers are not good for the fabric and will harm the integrity of the fabric, rendering it most likely not able to be waterproofed.
Tent Magic can be applied by brush, roller or swab. It could also be sprayed on, however you will need a sprayer which can deal with a viscous fluid, and you cannot use a used garden or backpack sprayer with which you’ve sprayed weedkiller or other chemicals. Use a brush to apply a good coating to seams, and ideally apply in favourable climatic conditions, such as a nice, fine day with a bit of a breeze. Drying and curing will take up to an hour. There are no noticeable odours or smells from applying Tent Magic, and you can use the tent or cover etc immediately when dry.
Instructions are on the back of the container and are easy to read and follow. Do not dilute this product with water or any other liquid.
