Industry Standard


Developed by Hawk Labs™ Tylol© binds commercial waterproofer to synthetic and natural fibers for years of waterproofing performance. Fabric Ductility is increased 375% over standard material and abrasion resistance is beyond any fabric waterproofing compound available. Tylol in conjunction with UV and mold blocking compounds creates a fortress around woven fibers. This increase in performance comes with a compromise, weight. Expect a weight increase of 60%-80%.
