SatProof™ 600+ Canvas is a blended cotton canvas used in a variety of material weights depending on the design requirements. The anti-mildew water proofing agent is saturated throughout the canvas before manufacture so even after wear and tear it will still provide a waterproof barrier. SatProof™ 600+ Canvas creates a waterproof canvas that minimises condensation build up, while the structure of cotton allows water vapour molecules to pass through and at the same time provide a barrier to water droplets. The roof fabric in the Cabin Tents and Camper Trailer Tents is rolled under pressure to accept a silver coating that blocks out more than 98% of UV radiation and heat. The technology used in this protective coating has been developed to provide a level of finish never before seen in a canvas product.
Conditioning your Canvas
It is vitally important that you season your canvas when it’s new and also after long periods of storage so it gives its best performance. Simply pitch your tent or swag and wet it down with a garden hose. This enables the stitching holes to shrink around the thread of the stitch lines and the cotton in the canvas to swell. Let the canvas dry completely before repeating this two or three times.
Tips and traditional first aid for canvas products
Even though you may have seasoned your canvas, sometimes you can miss a spot or a seam. An age old remedy if this happens is to carry a clear wax candle with you when you go camping. If you do notice a seam has not been seasoned properly, simply rub the candle on the exterior of the stitch line. This will create a waterproof barrier quickly and easily.
If cared for correctly, your OZtrail canvas will still be around for the next generation of campers to enjoy.
