Nikwax - travel solutions and waterproofing
Nikwax  - travel solutions and waterproofing

Nikwax were the inventors of breathable WaterBased re-proofers.

Nikwax is easy to use
It's simple to apply. For instance, for clothing just use in a washing machine on a normal wash cycle. Garments do not have to be tumble-dried to activate water repellency and there is no need to wait for a clean, wet garment to dry before waterproofing with Nikwax.

Nikwax is safe to use
It's environmentally safe. No chemical solvents. No Fluorocarbons. Our products are non-toxic, non-flammable and do not expel fumes which means Nikwax products do not contribute to global warming or ozone depletion. Products are not tested on animals and the packaging is recyclable. Nikwax is safe for you and the environment.

Nikwax keeps you dry
Our WaterBased products offer higher concentrations of waterproofing agents than aerosol products… up to 5 times more concentrated. Nikwax doesn't require heat to activate water-repellency, unlike fluorocarbon products, therefore works even on garments that can not be tumble-dried. Prolongs the use of gear and keeps you dry and comfortable in wet weather.

Nikwax's position on fluorocarbons in clothing and aftercare products

Nikwax would like to reassure current retail customers, and potential retail customers, that NIKWAX AFTERCARE PRODUCTS CONTAIN NO FLUOROCARBON WATER AND STAIN REPELLENT COMPONENTS.
  • Nikwax does not believe that there are any safe consumer fluorocarbon products for consumer application. Although some products do not contain PFOA when new, the chemicals within them can degrade in the environment or in the digestive system to form dangerous, persistent PFOA, or products like PFOA.
  • Nikwax has tested other aftercare product suppliers' products and found that all of our competitors have at least one fluorocarbon product in their range.
  • The fact that a product has a "green" label does not ensure that it is free of fluorocarbon; we know that a number of 'green' labelled aftercare products do contain fluorocarbons.
  • Nikwax does not believe that C6 PFCs are a truly safe alternative to C8 PFCs. All PFCs are persistent in the environment, whether they are C8 or C6.
  • Nikwax will supply independently certified assurances that Nikwax products are fluorocarbon-free, on demand.
