TX Direct Wash-In Water Repellent
Use Nikwax TX Direct to add water-repellency and revive the breathability of your waterproof clothing. If your wet-weather gear is soaking up water even after having washed it with a care product like Nikwax Tech Wash, you will need to add Durable Water Repellency (DWR) using TX Direct.
Ensure you clean your garment first before applying this product. It is WaterBased, non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is fluorocarbon free. Nikwax TX.Direct® has been specifically designed and optimized for breathable waterproof clothing, providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) while maintaining breathability.
Nikwax TX.Direct® requires no heat to develop its DWR, so it is not necessary to use a tumble drier for best results.
Nikwax TX Direct is recommended for GoreTex and eVent garments.
