Heat-Activated Fabric Dressing

$19.95

Our Heat-Activated Fabric Dressing comes in a large 1/2-pint tin and provides enough wax to tackle those bigger projects. This item is perfect for those folks looking to achieve that ‘Factory-Waxed’ appearance. Our Fabric Dressing is perfect for those waterproofing unwaxed items, but it’s also a great option for those that want to use an all-natural wax treatment to re-waterproof their factory-waxed and oiled jackets. Applies easily when melted with a natural-bristle paint brush, soft cloth, and some elbow grease.

1/2 Pint  |  Made in Portland, Oregon

Instructions

 

The application process contains a few more steps than our wax bars, but the extra effort yields fantastic results. Applying hot wax penetrates deep into fabrics and dramatically reduces cure time.

•  place tin in 1.5" cool water
•  use heating element to simmer until melted
•  apply with a brush or lint-free cloth
•  use only as much wax as can be absorbed
•  rub into fabric with fingers for uniformity
•  allow 24~48 hours for wax to cure
•  remove spot stains with Canvas Cleaner
•  deodorize with Odor Eliminator

 

FAQ

 

What's the difference between your Wax Bars and Fabric Dressing? 

Our Wax Bars are excellent for one-sided waxing because it creates a seal on the top layer of the fabric. It’s ideal for hats, shoes, and gloves, where you wouldn’t want waxed fabric in direct contact with your skin. Our bars are also great for quickly re-proofing factory waxed and oiled garments. Our Fabric Dressing is melted down when applied, thus permeating deeper into the fabric and yielding a more factory-waxed appearance. This is ideal for multi-layered coats and jackets, or for re-proofing factory-oiled fabrics.

I've applied Otter Wax, how long do I have to wait before I can use my item?

We recommend allowing freshly waxed items to cure in a warm and dry place for 24-72 hours before use. Lower temperatures and higher humidity will often extend the amount of time it takes for a waxed item to cure and the light tack subside. Heavy application of our wax may also contribute to longer cure time, so we recommend starting off with a light coat of wax and adding more if desired.

On what types of fabric can I use Otter Wax?

Our Fabric Wax and Fabric Dressing will work on most any type of fabric. Because our wax is made from all-natural ingredients, it will generally bond best with natural fibers (cotton, hemp, etc., however it is also very effective on blended fabrics where the proportion of natural fiber to synthetic is in the majority.

Good product. Easy to apply and looked factory finished when complete I refinished a canvas purse for my wife.. I heated the can in a frying pan to turn the wax to liquid. I heated the purse at 200 degrees in the oven for 2 minutes, and applied the wax with a MICROFIBER CLOTH in sections rubbing in heavy spots to distribute wax evenly. Returned the purse back to the oven several times to keep it warn during the process.so the fabric would absorb the wax. After I covered the entire purse, I put it back in the oven at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes, checking on it intermittently. and rotating it a few times It looked new when I was finished. MICROFIBER CLOTH IS KEY TO GETTING A NICE FINISH

This is so simple to apply. Heat it in a pan of water until it melts, use a "Chalk Painter's Choice - Professional Wax Brush {R15}" and brush it onto your tin cloth hats, coats and chaps. Then use a heat gun to soak it in and run off the excess and let it cool down.So Simple and it works. 100% waterproof.
