current tx direct - "Nikwax treatments are highly effective and long lasting. Items that are properly treated (pre-washed with Nikwax Tech Wash, then treated with an appropriate Nikwax proofer such as Nikwax TX.Direct) will withstand 4 to 6 washes using Tech Wash." and the new one will withstand at least 40 washes - 5 times more? the maths is rather interesting at the very least.
does this now mean that you can use tx direct to proof more things e.g. general clothing that requires a lot more washing? (i'm thinking specifically of trousers at the moment) is it to be recommended by nikwax?
thanks for the reply dan.
i feel some experiments coming on...

You should only say "at least 5" if that's the definite minimum, which I doubt is the case.
"Up to 5" would only be true in the sense of misleading (or not) if you could demonstrate at least one application where it gave at least 5 times improvement. This would not be the case if you used the old stuff.
c.f. any number of shops advertising "up to x% discount". Something in there must be available with at least x% off or ASA will want words.
Use the specific Nikwax product for insulation - not the TX10.
Ring Nikwax for detailed advice
Have they cut the range to 682,000?
so does this mean i'll get a whole week of beading in wet weather?
as appose to the old stuff never really lasted more than a longweekend before wetting out again.
every time i try and submit this i get attacked by the grangers add. solidarity amongst the proofers no dowt.
