How to use Nanotol Textile Protector
The textile should be clean and dry before you treat it. No residues of the cleaning agent should stick to the fibers. Clean like you always do.
Treatment with Nanotol Textile Protector is very easy. Spray the liquid on the surface until every fiber of the fabric has soaked up the coating and is wet. Don´t spray too much to avoid puddles. If some lighter areas have not been soaked, you haven´t sprayed enough.
Now the textile just needs to dry. We recommend waiting at least 24 hours.
Since we do not work with propellants or other harmful ingredients, the treatment does not have to take place outside, nor will you smell the treatment. Moisten the clean textile thoroughly and let it dry. It´s so easy.
TIP: If your textile has already been pretreated to make it water-repellent, you can sometimes work the protector into the fiber with a little pressure. A clean brush or paint roller may help here. We have repeatedly learned that this means that coating with Nanotol is still possible.
How long the coating will last varies from application to application, depending on how often the textiles have been used. We recommend recoating if the effect is decreasing. If in doubt, this can be tested with some clean water. When refreshing, imperfections are filled. However, intact areas do not get a second layer. You need significantly less coating than the first time.
After coating, you can rinse treated surfaces under water. Use a brush or cloth to loosen the dirt. For example, you can simply clean a show under the water pipe.
Waterproof or water repellent
Nanotol is an easy-to-clean coating. Treatment with Nanotol Textile Protector does not make a textile waterproof. Since the coating enwraps the individual fibers but does not seal the surface like plastic, water can still penetrate at higher pressure. The fibers do not get wet and the textile does not get dirty, but the water still comes through the gaps.
For example, if you accidentally step into a puddle, you will stay dry. If you stay there longer, your socks will still get wet over time.
This can also happen when riding a motorcycle if the rain pressure becomes too high. In contrast, we have had very good experience with convertible roofs. If in doubt, ask us directly whether we recommend the application.
