New Greener Nikwax Launches
Water-based tubes of Nikwax boot proofer replace the traditional cans of wax paste.
Posted: 19 February 2009
proofing for boots has changed with the traditional Pastewax being
replaced with new WaterBased
Waterproofing Wax For Leather
some 30 years after founder
Nick Brown first invented the stuff.
So it's goodbye to solvent-based tins of Nikwax and hello to the new
tubed stuff. Nikwax says it stays true to 'the company’s
unyielding environmental standards' but also works very, very well.
What's more it can be applied to wet or dry leather and is immediately
effective, so no waiting around for it to cure. In addition, it doesn't
impair the breathability of the leather.
Application is either by sponge or by hand using the novel applicator,
it says here. Pride and Prejudice we reckon for those traditional boots
and maybe something a little more contemporary for dapper approach
Available in 60 mL and 100 mL sizes. SRP: SRP for 60ml is
£2.99 and 100ml is £3.99.
