Description

Nikwax Rug Proof

Wash-in waterproofing for canvas and synthetic horse rugs. Ideal for Gore-Tex® and New Zealand rugs.

Your animal is most likely to get clammy and uncomfortable in wet or damp conditions if the breathability of their waterproof rug or coat is impaired. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the rug/coat can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your animal rug/coat must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax Rug Proof™.
