Taking care of our belongings is something that many of us do by instinct. And how not to do it? It is something that, in a way, gives them greater durability and resistance. This is a great help, because the passage of time, dirt, and other factors can do their thing with them and damage them.
Surface protection is a method of care that has gained popularity in recent years. Glass, wood, metal, among others, are just some of the surfaces that can currently be protected in a masterful way, thanks to a great method: nanotechnology.
At Nanoprotection we have been experts in the care and protection of surfaces with nanotechnology for more than 10 years. On this occasion, we want to talk about something that is rarely talked about: protection of textile materials. However, we will focus on something specific: waterproofing a tent
Do you want to learn how to properly clean and protect a tent? Then join us in your reading, because you’re going to find out right now. You’ll see how quick and easy it is – pay close attention and take note!
What is nanotechnology and how does it work?
In general terms, nanotechnology consists of the study and manipulation of matter, at an incredibly small scale: in nanometers! To give you an idea, a nanometer is equivalent to one millionth of a millimeter. Yes, that small!
One of the most advanced fields in nanotechnology is surface cleaning and protection. In most cases, it is used to produce repellents against water, oleophobic substances and almost any dirt. Sometimes, these products offer the possibility not only to repel certain agents, but also to clean automatically.
Among other benefits, nanotechnology cleaning products protect against abrasion, are long-lasting, easy to apply and residue-free. Best of all, almost any surface can now be protected. Nanoprotection has a wide range of such products, which you will learn about later. But let’s talk about tents.
Take care of your tent with these wonderful treatments from Nanoprotection
To talk about their care, first of all we have to talk about the manufacturing materials of tents. For the most part, tents have two pieces of fabric, which are the body (including walls and roof) and a canopy.
These fabric parts of tents are often made of synthetic materials. These are used because they are lightweight and resistant to climatic factors, such as rain or extreme sun. Polyester is one of the most popular materials used in the manufacture of tents.
Nanoprotection, with its extensive experience in surface protection, offers two excellent products to take care of these parts of the tents. As they are textile materials, the products Protecteur Textile & Cuir (Anti Tache pour tissus) and Détachant Textile & Cuir (Nettoyant Écologique) are perfect for them. Check them out by clicking on their names!
Although they are products with similar names, they are certainly very different. The first is a protector, while the other is a cleaner. But let’s talk more about them:
Protecteur Textile & Cuir (Anti Tache pour tissus)
Protecteur Textile & Cuir is available in a 100 ml spray bottle. As mentioned above, this water-based product will protect any textile or leather surface against water, stains and other contaminants.
Yes, we know what you’re thinking: it’s perfect for clothing (both exterior and interior), carpets, curtains, armchairs and…. Yes, waterproofing a tent!
How to use Protecteur Textile & Cuir?
Applying Protecteur Textile & Cuir is a very simple job. The surface to be treated (tents, clothes, cushions, armchairs, carpets…) must be completely clean and free of any pollutants. Once the surface is ready, simply spray the product on the surface until it is soaked.
And what do you do next? Just let it dry for a few hours and that’s it! You will have your textile surface protected for at least one year (the duration of the treatment will also depend on the frequency of washing). Do not hesitate to apply it to your tent, for optimal protection against rain and other pollutants.
Détachant Textile & Leather (Ecological Nettoyant)
Détachant Textile & Cuir is also available in a 100 ml presentation with its respective atomizer. This product is, for the opposite case, a cleaner. Have you had a textile surface unprotected for a while? Surely it has been filled with stains, dust and is very dirty. But don’t worry, this product is your solution.
Like the previous one, Détachant Textile & Cuir also works on any textile surface, including tents. It is also worth mentioning that it is a 100% eco-friendly product (it is water-based as well). So, let’s get to know its application method.
How to apply Détachant Textile & Cuir?
Using Détachant Textile & Cuir is also very simple, as it also consists only of spraying. In this case, it should be sprayed directly onto the surface to be cleaned. If it is a stain to be removed, it should also be applied directly. Now, the next step is just to wait to let the product act.
How long does it take to wait? Well, that will depend on the depth of the dirt or stain. It can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. You must be attentive at all times. Finally, just remove the product with a dry cloth and you will see how it recovers all its splendor: it will be like new, without stains or traces of dirt.
Tent fabrics tend to get dirty frequently, as they are so exposed in open spaces. So do not hesitate to use it, to give it a proper maintenance. If you want to take better care of your tent, you can apply Protecteur Textile & Cuir after cleaning the surface.
As if all these benefits were not enough, we are pleased to tell you that both products are also available in a wonderful textile care kit. Explore it at the link above, or in our special sets section of our website.
