Canvas Waterproofer

The most durable canvas waterproofer on sale today. Hawk Tools Ultra Durable Canvas Waterproofer is 100% concentrated fabric waterproofing without fillers, accelerants, thinners, VOC’s or other toxic or carcinogenic compounds. The secret to extreme waterproof performance is our own proprietary blend of pine pitch, beeswax, and our own unique blend of waxes and oils. So, your waterproof cotton will stay waterproof for years and repel harmful UV rays with the best fabric waterproofer. Fabric water repellent companies like 303 and Starbrite only guarantee canvas fabric water repellency, not AATCC waterproof performance. Hawk Tools is one of the few companies with high performance fabric water

Canvas Wax

Canvas wax is what you need to make a proper oilcloth. Oilskin or wax canvas jacket performance depends on the best canvas weatherproofing products. Companies like Starbrite, 303 waterproofing, otter wax, and Barbour do not manufacture the most durable blend and/or in the right quantities for DIY waxed canvas or canvas tent waterproofing. Hawk Tools blend is perfect for waterproofing tarps, covers, outdoor furniture, clothing, Tin pants, jackets and so much more.

10 reviews for Canvas Waterproofer 1 Gallon | Ultra Durable | #1 Formula

  1. Gerry Kenstag

    This stuff is extremely durable, definitely the best in the business.

  2. Elsa Schneider

    When are you getting more in stock?

  3. Guy James

    There are not many options for a proper canvas waterproofer available anymore. The homebrew mixes online are not durable and stray too far from the blends used back in the day (in the worst sort of way). This has zinc and pine pitch. So, it’s got the UV protection of modern waterproofer and classic ingredients that voyageurs relied on for life and limb. Make sure to support heritage products like this.

  4. Peter J.

    Product works very well. A heat gun helps with application. Make sure you apply on a warm day. Works better than Filson wax.

  5. Kyle Jameson

    The can get’s hot and can leave rings in plastic decking. The waterproofer is the best tho.

  6. John Evans

    This is a super durable coating for canvas. It fills seams and is very flexible. Moisture never builds up inside, I don’t know how these guys do it.

  7. Leo Taylor

    Starbrite does not work on canvas. They say it will work on the gallon but water seeps right through. After a long and heated conversation with customer service, they just said I applied it wrong. I put down five coats and it is still not waterproof. Just buy canvas waterproofer, it actually works and customer service is impecable.

  8. Emily Christiansen

    How did I not find this sooner…

  9. Peter Johan

    The heater took 30 minutes to melt everything liquid so it took an hour to waterproof my bell tent. It smells great and went on easy enough.
    -Update – It rained this past weekend and not a drop of rain got in. Not only that but tree sap and dirt fell off with a light brushing. The thickness of the waterproofer coating keeps stuff from sticking.
