Keep all your favorite fabrics crisp and clean for years to come.
Product liquid and spray are flammable, keep product and treated article (until dry) away from heat, sparks or open flames. Do not smoke when applying 303® Fabric Guard™. Spray until evenly wet, overlapping sprayed areas. NOTE: Reduced coverage when applied with paint roller or brush. Apply to fabric above 70°F/21°C. (For quicker drying/curing and best results, apply in full sun.) Treated material must be protected from rain/dew until completely cured. CURING: 6-12 hours dependent on temperature. If these steps are performed correctly, the material will be water repellent at this point. 303® Fabric Guard™ will need reapplication depending on fabric exposure to sunlight and weather conditions; pour water on fabric to determine need to retreat fabric. COVERAGE:75-100 sq. ft. (60 x 90 cm) per 16 fl. oz. (473 ml) on lightweight fabrics; 40-75 sq. ft. (30 x 60cm) on heavier fabrics depending on material and application method.
