Nick Brown, founder of Nikwax, said: “For years Nikwax has been providing PFC-free, high performance aftercare to the world outdoor market, and has attained a world leading position with its technology. We all know that the original water-repellent treatments, PFC or otherwise, need to be replaced because of wear and abrasion after a year or so, and Nikwax does that job very well, easily and safely. We are really touched by the support and enthusiasm from our customers. Thank you”.
Nikwax was founded in 1977 and from its conception has fought to bring quality, waterproofing solutions to the market, products that don’t impinge on nature. Quite simply, products that don’t cost the Earth. With Tech Wash and TX Direct being the most popular aftercare treatments in the Nikwax range, consumers are able to reproof their gear, rendering it waterproof again by simply adding the PFC-free, water-based solution to their domestic wash. Maintaining outdoor gear in this way maintains its performance levels and reduces the need for replacement – the ultimate in tackling that prized, green goal of “Re-use”.
Nikwax is continually striving to spread the sustainability message and will be seen in Rab Down garments this spring when Rab’s Nikwax Hydrophobic Down garments and sleeping bags hit the high street.
