    I have a 13 year old BMW Convertible and the canvas top has been starting to leak during heavy rain. I tried other brands like Raggtop and they didn't fix the problem. After applying one coat of this product and letting it dry for a couple of days, it is totally waterproof again. The water just beads off. I use this stuff on all my outdoor clothing but need to let it dry outside the house for 2 full days because the odor is enough to choke you.

    Followed the directions and applied it to my bimini top. With the first rainfall, and it was a heavy rain, the water went right through the fabric and throughout the cockpit. This is the 4th season for the bimini and we applied the product since we were noticing some minor seepage earlier in the boating season. Absolute failure of the product.

    Best product that I have found for the boat canvas. The only con is that it bleeds out and makes black streaks on the white hull paint.

            First year into the boating arena, so am a novice at every aspect of boat maintenance.
            Star-Brite products AND West Marine have been my go-to on this learning path. Thanks to all.

              Used to treat an old boat canvas that use to let water thru. Treated canvas repels water well. Had to purchase a tank sprayer. Applied nicely.

              I have Sunbrella boat covers in South FL and new fabric loses its water proofing after about 3 yrs. I clean it per manufacturers recommendations and let dry. Then use a garden pump sprayer to coat with Sunbrite Waterproofing. Let dry and water beads up for at least two years and doesn't get mildewed.

                Ruined our expensive tent

                Comments about Star Brite Waterproofing & Fabric Treatment with PTEF:

                My husband used this on our expensive Big Agnes tent. We never had any leakage prior to application of this product. It proved to be a complete disaster as it seemed to disinegrate the tent.

                We were in the middle of a huge down pour in the middle of the forest when I notice many new small holes in the rain fly which had never been there prior to application of this product! We got soaked.
                I have camped in tents my entire life and never had this problem! I would not advise purchasing this product!

                  I purchased this for my awning for my trailer and it was like a miracle worker. it completely stopped all the leaks and kinda filled in all the little pin holes from small branches that fall from the trees. but I absolutely love this stuff. Very very good product. I even have two friends that asked if I would pick them up a couple bottles for there awnings.

                        We love this product. We use it on our 28ft cruiser bimini top. It lasts all summer long. It's a great water proofing product.
