Manufacturer's Description

Tx Direct Spray-On is spray-on waterproofing for wet weather clothing. TX Direct Spray-On adds durable water repellency and revives breathability.

Why breathability depends upon water repellency...

Breathable waterproof garments are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your jacket must be maintained to ensure comfort. It will eventually wear off and need to be renewed with Nikwax TX.Direct®.

Waterproof clothing needs to be breathable...

When we work hard, we sweat. The evaporation of sweat cools us down and keeps us comfortable. But, when it rains we want to avoid getting wet, so we put on waterproof outerwear to keep us dry. The waterproof fabric must allow moisture vapour to pass through it, or ‘breathe’; otherwise our sweat cannot evaporate, causing us to overheat and get wet from condensation. Additionally, if the outer fabric of your garment absorbs water and ‘wets out’ its breathability will be reduced, causing you to feel clammy and wet.

Nikwax TX.Direct® adds Durable Water Repellency (DWR), which prevents water absorption, whilst maintaining breathability, keeping you dry and comfortable.

Breathable, waterproof clothing is for active, outdoor people...

Anyone who is active outside in damp or wet conditions will benefit from breathable waterproof clothing. Whether you’re a mountaineer, cyclist, dog walker, or you work outside as a farmer or surveyor, you will need good raingear.

Use Nikwax TX.Direct® when your raingear soaks up water...

Your raingear could be soaking up water just because it is dirty. First, try cleaning it with Nikwax Tech Wash®, and if it is fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning. But, once the garment has been thoroughly worn, you will need to add DWR, using Nikwax TX.Direct®, after cleaning first with Nikwax Tech Wash®.

Breathable raingear with wicking linings need Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On to maintain performance...

Alternative waterproofing products are often solvent-based aerosols; alternatively, they may be water-based and use fluorocarbons. Aerosol products are flammable. Fluorocarbons pose a potential risk to the environment and to the long-term health of the consumer. Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On is a safe product to use on breathable waterproof items with wicking linings, or those that can’t be machine washed. It is WaterBased, non-flammable, contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is fluorocarbon free. Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On can be applied to the outer face fabric of waterproof clothing, providing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) without compromising internal wicking properties. It has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof clothing, providing DWR whilst maintaining breathability. Nikwax TX.Direct® requires no heat to develop its DWR, so it is not necessary to use a tumble drier for best results. As garments with taped seams get older the tape adhesion weakens, becoming more fragile and susceptible to heat, so it is best to avoid tumble drying.

If your raingear doesn’t have a wicking lining, use Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In...

Using the right waterproofing product is important. Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On is fantastic for raingear with wicking linings, as it provides Durable Water Repellency (DWR) without impairing wicking properties. However, if wicking linings aren’t present, using Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In ensures you won’t miss any areas (complete DWR coverage!) and it’s easy to apply in a washing machine.

How Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On protects...

Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On is easy and quick to apply, and its highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR) develops on air drying. The need for tumble drying is removed, this saves energy and protects more vulnerable, older, garments from heat. Nikwax TX.Direct® Spray-On has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof garments; it leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibres allowing moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability. The spray-on application allows for direct treatment of areas which require it most (e.g. elbows and seams on jackets) and will not compromise the properties of internal wicking liners.

Like all Nikwax products, TX.Direct® is safe to use...

Nikwax takes great care to minimise the effect of Nikwax products on the environment and on you, the consumer. Nikwax waterproofing products are WaterBased, non-aerosol, non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. They contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and are completely free of fluorocarbons (which have been shown to be persistent in the environment and have been associated with serious health issues).

People who use Nikwax TX.Direct® say that it does the job...

Nikwax TX.Direct® is the product of choice of professional Outdoor trainers. To find out more about people who are using Nikwax TX.Direct®, and other Nikwax products, take a look at our testimonials page on our home page.

Use Nikwax TX.Direct® spray-On by hand...

For best results remove all non-washable parts and always clean item(s) first with Nikwax Tech Wash® in a separate wash cycle. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing.

    - Protect working surface and lay clean wet fastened garment flat.
    - Hold bottle 15cm/6 inches away from garment.
    - Apply evenly to outside of fabric.
    - Wait for 2 minutes. Remove any surplus product with a damp cloth.
    - Check carefully to ensure no areas have been missed.

This is a review of Nikwax Tx. Direct Spray On Spray On Waterproofer.
Nikwax gets the job done. The wax is milky white when applied and invisible when dried. It air dries in 10 mins. This waterproofed all my jackets, bags, and trousers. It doesn't change the color of fabric. It has a vinegar smell but it goes away after 2 days. It comes with a sprayer, which requires a bit of adjustment to get it to spray wide instead of a straight jet. If you have any questions at all, just comment below and I will answer those right away for you. Also if my review helped you in any way, please hit the "YES" below where it asks "Was this review helpful to you?" :-)

Much valued product.
As a family, we have many "Paramo" walking jackets.
I decided to buy the 5lt container, as it is by far the much more economical way of waterproffing all those jackets.
I have been using the small size of this product for many years, at last I have decided on the large container.

Got to love Nikwax - with a family of outward bound people (5), this stuff has kept us dry over the years - from torrential rain in the depths of Devon on PGL trips to protecting our skiing clothes this works great - tip - go to B&Q and get a cheap garden sprayer and use that instead of the provided one with the 5 litre bottle as the finer spray means more coverage

I followed all the directions and used the Nikwax Rug Wash first. I reproofed a horse rug and turned the horse out in it yesterday for the day. It was heavy rain but the rug was completely sodden. I'm going to contact the supplier as it is it did not work.

Following washing my motorcycle jacket and trousers with the Techwash, I used the direct spray on, to waterproof them. It may be that its because the jacket and trousers are only about 4 months old and quite good quality, but they are still perfectly waterproof following a couple of washes, I'm quite happy to ride in the pouring rain now, knowing I am going to be perfectly dry.

This spray on solution is great, used it on my tent and also walking boots, rain just falls off.. The 5 litre pot is a great value for money, much better than buying individual 300 ml bottles.
