Nikwax Down Proof 300ml

Easy to use, safe, high performance wash in waterproofing for down filled clothing and gear. Adds Durable Water Repellency; reducing weight gain, maintaining the insulation and breathability of down filled items in cold and damp conditions.

Your down gear could be soaking up water just because it is dirty. First, try cleaning it with Nikwax Down Wash, and if it is fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning. But, once the gear has been thoroughly used, you will need to add DWR, using Nikwax Down Proof, after cleaning first with Nikwax Down Wash. This will add DWR to the outer fabric of the gear and also the down fill.

Nikwax Down Proof has been specifically designed and optimised for down filled gear. It adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR), which protects against rain and condensation, improving the natural insulating properties of down. Nikwax Down Proof prolongs the effective life of your down gear. It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual down filaments and fabric fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and optimising performance in cold and damp conditions. Nikwax Down Proof is a safe, easy to use product for down filled gear. It is quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the item, treating both the outer fabric and the down fill. The DWR of Nikwax Down Proof develops on air drying. However, tumble drying is recommended to ensure that the down is dried thoroughly and as quickly as possible. Leaving down wet or damp can ruin it completely.

Use Nikwax Down Proof in a washing machine. For best results remove all non-washable parts and clean item(s) first with Nikwax Down Wash™ in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions (large items can be treated by hand).
Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser.
Place clean item in washing machine (maximum 1 item).
Use 150ml for 1 item.
Run 30°C synthetic cycle and slow spin.
After the cycle has finished run multiple spin cycles, each time incrementally increasing the spin speed, to remove excess water.
To maintain waterproofing always wash with Nikwax Down Wash. Do not use detergents.

Nikwax takes great care to minimise environmental impact. Nikwax waterproofing products are WaterBased, non-aerosol, non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. They contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and are completely free of fluorocarbons (which have been shown to be persistent in the environment and have been associated with serious health issues). As well as actual compounds, sourcing is considered as well, so Nikwax avoids using materials in its cleaners such as palm oil, which may be sourced from unsustainable plantations. Nikwax Tech Wash® is environmentally friendly, non-hazardous, water based and biodegradable.
