Almost impossible to apply as stated in directions - “Apply multiple thin coats.” However applied on roof of canvas as single thick layer, working into seams with brush. Applied to sidewalls in a diluted solution, again working into seams.
Did a brilliant job keeping rain out! Had atrocious rain first two nights - hardly a drop inside tent. Worth the $$ & effort.
I have a Black Wolf Turbo 300 (the heavy canvas one) which is approximately 7 years old. The tent has seemed to have lost it's ability to repel water, in particular the coating on the inside of the fly and tent appears to have lost its ability to repel water and the tape on the inside of all the seams is starting to peel off. If applied as directed would this product water proof my tent?
Yes - the Primus Aqua Proof is designed for weathered canvas as you have described. Our encouragement would be to ensure you follow the directions closely, especially checking to ensure you get consistent coverage. We'd also recommend coating the outside first to see whether that fixes the issue before then coating on the inside. I personally haven't heard of people coating the inside, but that's not to say it can't be done.
The other thing I would recommend in regards to your seams is to consider a seam sealer which can add further protection. We also sell Seam Sealer which is available here.
I know it works on the canvas but not sure about the vinyl roof tops which are now starting to allow water in.
I'm afraid not, as this product is only suitable to use with canvas. As far as I know there are some products that can repair small holes or tears on vinyl, but if it's completely worn out then you may need to look into replacing it entirely.
I'd recommend contacting your local annex and camper trailer manufacturer, as they should be able to make a replacement for you.
For maintenance or preventative?
It wouldn't hurt to treat a tent straight up with this Stacy, but it's not necessary. It can depend on the quality of the canvas, but the products we sell will be fine straight out of their packaging. The use of something like Aqua Proof would only be necessary after a few years of heavy use, or if you notice any areas that are soaking the water up after rain.
If you're buying a new tent or swag, all you really need to do is season it before use, which means setting it up in the backyard and wetting it down with a hose. This helps all the seams to bed in all the seams so they are watertight when your out camping. I'd be buying some Aqua Proof down the track once your tent looks well loved!
Our tent floor is letting in water when it rains. A this suitable to apply to the floor of the tent?
What are the coverage areas for the two sizes available and how to apply - spray or brush? thanks
