ReviveX® Water & Stain Repellent
- Product Review (submitted on July 24, 2010):
I'm about to attempt this on my Aerostich suit so I did some research. "The water repellent effect is based on the differential
surface tension of the impregnated fabric." ..this is where the heat comes in. It (heat) acts on the coating to "orient the structure" thereby providing the desired surface tension.
Other products suggest 5 minutes on normal cycle so I'll try that first knowing that reheating the material is advised periodically to maintain the orientation.
Perhaps the ReviveX people could offer more information if contacted directly.
