Hydro-LOK waterproofing shoes tents gloves and more…
by Gail – My Repurposed Life
I am super excited about a couple of things I’m going to share with you today. First, Rainguard sent me some of their newest product, Hydro-LOK to try. What is Hydro-LOK? Why do you need it?
"Hydro-LOK contains revolutionary hydrophobic technology that repels water, mud, ice and other liquids and protects against corrosion and wear caused by exposure to the elements. Hydro-LOK is a single component nano-based super hydrophobic treatment that creates a moisture barrier on almost any surface. Hydro-LOK does not contain any harmful solvents and is not flammable either in liquid or dried form. Hydro-LOK is completely clear when dry and does not create a dark, hazy or frosted appearance. It is packaged in an easy-to-use sprayer, not a pressurized aerosol can. Hydro-LOK creates a clear, deep-penetrating and non-film-forming chemically reactive water repellent that contains no silicone oils, paraffin wax or urethane. Re-apply at ANY time for added protection! Rainguard®"
Take a look at this little video:
See? You do need it to protect your items from the elements.
Here is how I tried out my new Hydro-LOK. Did you know that these tents are water resistant, but NOT waterproof? If you’re having a craft show and one of these tents has water pooling on it, it will drip through. I didn’t want to take any chances, so I decide to treat my craft show tents with Hydro-LOK.
I sprayed one light coat, let it dry, then sprayed a second light coat. I feel so much better about my tents now. Your project needs to be a little porous so that it can actually absorb the Hydro-LOK. It is seriously that easy to protect your items such as work boots, patio furniture, wood, concrete and more!
I shot a little video to show you how well it works. I FORGOT to turn my phone so, you’ll have to ignore the black bars on each side.
In this photo you can see the evidence of the waterproofing — how the water beads up on the tent. Wow!
So with Hydro-LOK, your tent will be protected, and you now know how to easily put up a craft fair tent.
Thank you Rainguard for supplying me with this product. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
